Farm tip cart

Hi

 

Just joined this forum today but I've been looking around for a while so I thought I'd post a picture or two of my woodwork.

 

It's a scratch built scale model (1/12th) of a farm tip cart.

 

I've been building models for a few years just to keep up the woodworking skills till I need a piece of furniture.

 

I live in Brisbane, Australia

 

Timber is Tasmainian Myrtle

Finish is Dainish oil

Scale is 1/12th

Model is 32cm (12 1/2 inches) long.

 

Mick

Amazing detail and beautiful work!. 

 

The match stick really helps put things in perspective.

This is lovely - you've really captured the old farm feel in this model.  If you had shot the picture differently and not said it was a miniature, I wouldn't have thought twice!!!

 

Best,

EG

Good thing TIODS pointed out the match stick because there was no way I was going to believe that is a scale model!

 

Unless, of course, you use really big matches!!

 

Very nicely done!
