For the rest of us who lack your special talents may I take this opportunity to appeal to GLM/Matrix/Neo/TSM; please model these cars.

Superb Jean :) I really love the final result (and also the way there...). The colors came out wonderful, the interior is so much better, and all the little details, real pleasure and great photos as well!

Congratulations Jean on another superb effort. And it's so much fun to follow the progress over the weeks. I tune in most days.

Nice :oops: thank you! But I'm doing all this only for heaven's sake...

Thank you! Isn't that funny: at the beginning I was absolutely sure that the Cord would be a design of Gordon Buehrig. At least now we know where he got his ideas from... ;)

Thank you so much! It's a pleasure to entertain you with all that :P

But if they finally do so, I claim to receive all the white-metal models which are superfluous then... :lol:

Thanks a lot, it's my pleasure, too, to share all this with you!

Thank you! I'm glad to hear about your participation! It's really satisfying to build something with ones hands - so get your knives and files and paints and start model-building ;)

Thank you, that's so kind! By now I always insert a coin for every post in that round tablet coming out at the side of the laptop. Hope that this has an end now... the machine makes a strange noise meanwhile...

All the neighbours have to move closer together, but there's still enough space for the new one:

And I guess I'll have to pause model-building for a while... :( I really, really have to tidy up my workshop, including installing a new workbench for my lathe ( :D ), new lighting, additional sockets and so on... If anyone of you already tried to clean up a cellar room, you'll know what all this means... :roll: Presumably I will secretly starting the next model, but I should discipline myself and wait until everything is ready...

Another stunner Jean,
Bravo!

I love looking at your shelves and thank you for showing where the Cord is now living. :D
However my memory is fuzzy. :oops:
Have you shown the Auburn Speedster and coffin nosed Cord before?
Would also love to see close ups of the cars on your shelves sometime. (several at a time maybe or shelf by shelf)
Thank you, :)
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

Looking at your shelves, Jean, I really like the variety of colours on show, as well as the cars themselves, of course.
