Scratchbuilt 1/72 Ford Flivver Completed

This is the completed model post, for the step-by-step building article please go here in this same blog:

The Flivver is reproduced here as it appears in photos in what seems early test flights. No markings and a different fuselage top and nose than in later modifications. Photos show a spoke wheel -this model- and covered wheels -my other 1/100 model-.
The finding of the photos with the absence of markings was a blessing for me, since I did not want to publicize a brand associated with the historically glossed-over figure of Henry, whose discriminatory ideology was extremely questionable in many regards, as articles in his newspaper of the time prove.
But since the plane was the product of other minds and hands, and it is a really a cute little thing, I thought it deserved the effort of a scratchbuild, twice! since I made the 1/100 (by mistake)  and 1/72 versions.
Please don't sneeze.
