For those of you that may be following along, I completed the folding top on the Horseless Carriage model. Still have lots of details to add like lights, but wanted to share today's progress. Have a good evening. Mike

At first glance I thought it was a real, full size car!!!
You do great work. Congratulations.

Mike, I am very pleased to see the finished product. Excellent choice in top materials. It prompted me to search out my feeble attempt to build a 1/12th scale Model S 40 some years ago. I lost interest when I got to the body and top for lack of perseverance in finding better materials. It was good practice for other things but not as fulfilling as what you have accomplished.

I should add, the S project was inspired by the VF article which showcased a Model S and the reproduction NRS parts book. Keep up the good work Mike.

Rich,

Just make a little model garage and put all the parts of the Model S in it and it will be just like most of our garages with half finished cars in it. You could also have a person under it like he is working on it. Then you just put it on your shelf an call it a finished project :-)

Funny you should say that Dennis. I did build a little garage but haven't finished it either. It is 1/8th scale so the S is too small for it.
