  • A 1/32 copy of my full sized 54 Conestoga

    A 1/32, 3D manufactured 54 Studebaker Conestoga (station wagon).
    I've finished painting the chrome and putting the headlights in since this shot was taken, no more new pictures yet though.
    Hard to see, but it's got C.B. Design, NASCAR wheels with Slot.it tires.
    The real version is sitting in my driveway. It's light blue. I was...gonna paint this to match, but I kinda like the grey primer. Plus, it's easier to touch-up as required !
    It runs pretty well, but being 3D printed and a little top heavy, well, you get the idea. If I'm careful with the trigger, I can get it to slide, before it rolls.

    I love it, I have a 1/32 Stude Commander and its a favourite but I never heard of one of these before. Where did you get the file?

        I didn't do the 3D work. A friend of a guy on this site did the work. He had completed a Stude "Coupe", then modified it into a wagon. The dimensions aren't quiet correct for the actual, full scale car, but I'm not counting..!


        32lbKING -

        You've never heard of the "real" car, or this 3D body ?
        Yes, Studebaker made the Conestoga in 1954 and 55. All were 2dr cars. Other 2dr wagons were done by Studebaker, but only the 54 and 55 were..."Conestogas".
        See the note above about the design and build of this 3D body.

          Studebaker made some of the most beautiful american cars, back in the day. Avanti, Golden Hawk, and so on. Worth looking up on Wikipedia.

          Interestingly, the original Conestoga wagons were purpose-built freight carriers drawn by a large team of horses (they could carry twelve tons) and designed to float across rivers.

            Even before the Conestoga (which wasn't ONLY a freight hauler, they carried people across the plains too !), the lowly wheel barrow was a Studebaker offering in the mid 1800's during the California Gold Rush. He (John Studebaker) made them better and stronger to help the gold miners with their work.

            I have a 1/24 Conestoga too, but it needs front wheels and tire right now, so a picture wouldn't be proper.
