I wish I had bought one of these.  I like the plain Jane look.

@john-quilter

Very nice especially the wagon. Did you do the roof rack ?

John,  your building skills are most impressive.  Please consider a series of tutorial pictures at some time.

@d-m-holcombe I would also love to see some in-between pictures, or even just read a few how-to descriptions, or list of tools or materials used. Learning techniques 

or even just enjoying someone's artistry is another reason I enjoy being part of this Forum.

@d-m-holcombe OK you asked for it so here are the gruesome details of a 1954 Dodge Sierra conversion.  Most of my conversions are not done on expensive Brooklins but having said that, on the workbench as I write is a 1956 Plymouth two door sedan that will become a two door Suburban, a exact replica of a 1:1 car owned by a fellow in one of my car clubs.   So here is the Dodge, a replica of the Ionia bodied 4 door wagon project in no particular order.  The photo of the 1:1 car in green and cream was useful.   Usually I get so wound up in the process I fail to take detailed photos. I stick to real production cars, not customs or one offs.  American and English are a specialty.

John: I admire your determination and confidence to take on such extensive modifications. I know the great amount of work and patience required to get through a project like that. I have done several Brooklin modifications and repaints but limit the modifications to repaints or at most removing a roof or adding trim. I thought that I had patience but not enough to do what you have accomplished. Great work.

John, your work leaves me in awe.  Having the ability to cut and fill, replace and splice, and then to finish the whole thing  . . .  it's really special to see these pictures and imagine the hours you must put into the whole process.  Many thanks for sharing this achievement.  Well done!
