I recently started collecting model cars, I don't know much about them but know the ones I like and they are usually the ones I had when I was younger and many old cars. There is a lot to learn and I am having fun.
Check out the build Here.
First thing to do is figure out the size for the compartments. After checking a few of the longer cars I found 90 cm length would work best.
I used some scraps and made some cuts with my measurements to see if the height and length would work and if everything would fit together properly. When I was happy with what I had I was ready to move on to building a larger case.
Making the notches
To make the notches I measured 90 mm from the blade cut mark and drilled a small hole then tapped in a nail. After the nail was in I cut the head off.
A second hole was drilled for the nail. It was pulled out with Nail Jack pliers, and tapped into the hole. The spacing for the holes is 46mm and 90mm.
The boards are lined up and with the help of a rubber mallet the compartments are snapped together.
Making the frame
The frame boards are cut to the right length using the measurements from the compartment boards.
A rabbet cut was made on the back of the frame before it was assembled. This will be for the backboard.
