Wood Buck Kit

Introduction: Wood Buck Kit

About: I'm a mechanical designer I have always worked in the design and production in the mechanical industry. My biggest passion grows for many years for the technique and the dynamics of the car and everything rela…

I would introduce six wood buck models (Lancia Stratos - 1973, Porsche 911 Carrera 2 - 1995, Ferrari 250 TR - 1957, Porsche 550 spyder - 1955, Lamborghini Countach 25th - 1989, Mercedes 300SL "gullwing" 1955,Mercedes Sauber GR.C, Ferrari 250 GTO - 1962 and nextly Ferrari Enzo) made by a process start from a 3D design, laser cut and assembly; we take as an example for assembly a Porsche 911 Carrera 2 (1995 series).

History : This wooden kit scale reproduces the so-called "wood buck" or "template" with which to develop the necessary production equipment that car manufacturers used to make the body.

When still had no use of computers to design skilled craftsmen of the highest level made these wood buck; this model is scaled measure accurately the car as it was originally a real three-dimensional drawing.

Even today, some restorers of classic car make use of the template to obtain the parts of the body that can be made in various materials: aluminum, fiberglass, steel etc.

The process : All the models derived from a 3D drawing from which we obtain the sections reproduced in 2D for laser cut.

The kit includes parts of poplar plywood 3mm thick for the 1:18 scale and 4mm thick for the 1:12 scale, or other scales you want, each piece is cut by laser; the use of the glue for the assembly is required only for some parts while the rest is optional because the parts are fit with each other, this is clearly described in the instructions sheet provided in the box.

You can be realized different scale : 1/18, 1/12, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2

I can also supply the drawing wood buck model only so you can cut and assemble yourself with the help of enclosed instruction sheet.

On request is possible to realize also a new wood buck model drawing.

Other informations by e-mail.

Step 1: 3D Wireframe Drawing

From this 3D wireframe draw all the 2D parts for laser cutting.

Step 2:

Start from the first step : join the central longitudinal section (D) with the first two cross sections.

Step 3:

Add the inside longitudinal sections (B,C,E,F).

Step 4:

Add another cross section.

Step 5:

Add the outer longitudinal section A.

Step 6:

Add the outer longitudinal section G.

Step 7:

Add the other cross sections.

Step 8:

Prepare the windscreen pillar and glue it on the two cross sections attached.

Step 9:

Prepare the roof panel and glue it on the cross sections attached.

Step 10:

Glue the rear grille.

Step 11:

Add the two headlamp.

Step 12:

....the work is done.

Step 13:

These are the other wood buck models; for a big scale (1/12, 1/8, 1/5) I can make the body by an aluminum beaten shit, I will publish nextly this type of processing.

Step 14:

Porsche 550 spyder and aluminum beaten sheet version (scale 1/12)

Step 15:

Other models examples and finishing.

Step 16:

Ferrari 250 GTO (1962) - Coming soon this new kit with some bodies (plastic) parts, the kits can be supplied in 1/18, 1/12, 1/8 and 1/4 scale. If interested, send me your email for other info.

    Hello Patrick, how can I help you? To make your Jaguar xk120 you need of a 3d scan of the vehicle or dwg model, then 2D drawing for cutting with the size (scale) you wish. All the best.

    Hello phrogjlf1,
    I suppose you're referring to woodbuck, if so, when you realize a woodbuck model you need of a 3D drawing, in this case is possible to derive from your side view and some other pitcures, therefore when you got the drawing you can realize any size of the woodbuck, from miniature to full size with the same drawing.
