  • Wooden Wagonaire Model

    I'm sure many of you remember the Turning Wheels article about the Brazilian artist that handmade wooden car models from pictures submitted to him. I had him make a 64/65 red Daytona Wagonaire for me:





    He did a fantastic, one-of-a-kind job.

    I sent the post before I was done...

    I just wanted to add that the model looks better in real life than it even does in the pictures - It's quite the piece of art. I had the artist do a car that a Wagonaire project of mine may or may not actually be colorwise. I can just imagine how great one of these pieces would be if it was an actual replica of a specific car I owned.

        Very talented man, that should be a collectable item for years to come.

        If it wasn't for the last minute i'd never get anything done.

            Brooks Stevens would be proud. The windshield looks very much like and early Jeep Wagoneer.

              Too bad we can't get The Modelhaus to get someone to make a resin 1/25th scale kit for the Wagonaire. That would be very sweet indeed.

                What's he charge? I'd love to have a model of my Orange truck.

                  Keep in mind Roberto the Brizilian modeler has never set eyes on a Wagonair. All his work is done from informationa and photographs furnished him by the buyer. His models are hand made from wood and resin. Most of the trim pieces are made from aluminum and polished to represent SS or chrome. All models are one of a kind. Bill Brisbane is the coordinator. Bill is in Brizil at present and can emailed at Brisbaine@imagelink.com.br. His US email is Williamb@helicon.net.

                    The cost was $125 plus shipping ($30 from Brazil). There was at least a year wait, but I'm not sure if the wait is still that long.

                      Someone on ebay is making resin bodies for several cars/trucks, including a '59 Scotsman truck. By the time I bought it, bought the other parts, and built it, I'd have way more than $125 in it. Might just have to look into Roberto's service a little closer.

                        Scott,
                        Great model.
                        My wife ordered one of my car a couple of years ago.
                        Each one of his models is one of a kind and worth the wait and cost.
