  • My first segmentation, need suggestions.

    In a few weeks I will start my first segmentation project. I have attached the orignial photo and a pendrawing by Photosketcher. It gives a good startingpoint. This is the same car my dad owns, but in a light color, so the lines are more clear. Photo is made by me, so no copyright issues.

    I think I may be in over my head, but will find out soon enough. I will use 1/4 BB ply. The thing I worry about the most: How can I make the wire wheels and the grille look realistic? If I cut every single spoke it will be a mess. Any suggestions?
    Thanks a lot.

    I would carve the details of the wheels into the plywood with a "V"groove tool or even the edge of a Dremel type sanding drum. I have carved details, as part of an image ,into 1/2" Baltic birch ply using a "V" groove tool. Worked out well for me. (Sold it)

      I made a trans am years ago and printed the spokes on the wheels and decopauged them onto the wheels that I gouged out with the dremel tool. I tried to make the spokes and it was a big mess.
      In other words I gave up on doing each spoke. I was going to put a picture in but can't figure out how. Jackie

          You could also woodburn the lines in. I assume you are going to add color afterwards? You can put coats of thinned paint over the woodburning and the indentions will show but not the burning. Woodcarvers do this esp. on birds they've carved to show the feather detail.

            The first thing I would do is rethink your wood selection, I would go with solid wood over BB ply. Those spoke wheels are going to be fun no matter if you try to cut them or use one of the suggestions above. Good Luck with the project.

              I am with Tim on this I would suggest going with a solid wood 3/4. You will need something to work with as you do your shaping.
              More important what is the car? I want o say Gazell (kit?) but the grill is not right.
              What power plant? etc.

                It is a Panther Kallista. Many people call it a kitcar, but it isn't, they were made in a factory and were not available in kitform. The driveline (engine, transmission) are provided by Ford. Different engines were available from 1.6 carbs to 2.9 injected. Panther made different models, one of which is the Deville, known from the 101 dalmations movie, driven by Cruella de Ville.

                  I really like that woodburning idea. I will have to try that. Thank you

                    Dr Bob,
                    What power is in this one? I have a 1970 TVR with the 1.6 liter Ford. I also get the Kit car ? alot.

                      The one my dad has is the 2.8 L carb. It does not make it a racecar, but is quick enough to suprise a Golf GTI.

                        I would think that a large size intarsia might make it possible to cut the wheel spokes. Another option might be using wooden BBQ skewers glued into thin grooves. Maybe not the greatest suggestions, but maybe to get some ideas rolling around in your head. Very interesting car and well worth making an intarsia of. Maybe if you get more experience with less challenging intarsia work first, you will eventually find your own solution.

                        I have to agree with some of the posts above that a representation of the wheels without the full detail would probably be the best way to go if you can figure out how to do it.

                          Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                          Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda.
