Love the car! Marilyn is in perfect proportion. She always was a little larger than life.

Oatmeal48 asked:
She's perfect! And yes...it does look like a car :-). I know the feeling, I just made my second car and as I looked at all 4 sides after carving with NO template, I saw "A Van", "An Antique Car", "A Sports Car"...NOTHING like the Camaro I was attempting to make. So now I know...cars are NOT my thing. I did finally get it into proportion to look like one car, just don't know what KIND it's suppose to be LOL! I'll post pics later :-).
CakeBakerMoney answered:
Ha ha. Lol. I do think we're our worse critics! My husband often says "remember you're the only one looking at this under the microscope!"
