I glued the dashboard to the hood.

From veneer I glued plywood in two layers, made an instrument panel and a shield under the hood. Then covered with mahogany stain.

The whole unit was painted with cream paint.

I glued the shields.

Fastened the lamp holders.

The dash of the car was made using the papier-mâché method. From balsa I made the shape of a shield, pained primer and fixed it on a stand.

Then he cut paper strips from the newspaper, moistened them in water and put a cross on a cross on the form. The layers were coated with PVA glue slightly diluted with water. On the round edges I used pieces of napkin, sticking layer by layer too.

After drying, he took it off the mold.

He treated the shield with sandpaper, smoothed out irregularities with a putty and painted it with primer.

He started making the hood with the frame. For greater rigidity, I glued additional parts.

Then I pasted over the frame with cardboard from the set. The radiator has not yet begun to glue.

I made a couple more parts, putty, sanded and painted with a primer.

Collected the hood into one piece.
