This was a fun build, with lots of little pieces to process. So, I had to be super organised and methodical. All pieces were made from scraps. If I did not have the thickness, I manufactured it by glueing bits together. This build cost me practically zero and look at the result. just goes to show, DON'T THROW OUT YOUR SCRAPS. Even the itsy bitsy teeny weeny ones. Look on the dash board of the Fire Engine and you will see what I mean. Overall this was a very enjoyable build. 1932 Fire Engine1.jpg  1932 Fire Engine2.jpg  1932 Fire Engine3.jpg  1932 Fire Engine4.jpg  1932 Fire Engine5.jpg  1932 Fire Engine6.jpg  1932 Fire Engine7.jpg

Well done, Colin, well done. I love these plans. I did two of them one full size and one half size.

Love this Colin, paint job is stunning.

I keep nearly all my wooden scraps in a big plastic tub, amazing what you can do with them, as you have shown.

This is a beauty. Made your own wheels with a hole saw ?? They look good too,

Keep on building, Nick

No Genius about it, John. I just followed the plans. They are so easy to follow. And I thank you for that.

I have used other plans, and some of them are so involved with engineering, that the language and terms on the drawings are impossible for a layman like me to understand. Thank heavens for people like you who recognise the hobbyist who just wants to make toys to get some creative satisfaction and give some enjoyment to the recipient of the end product.

This Fire Engine is the result of two skills. Your vision and planning,  and my ability to take those plans and make it come to fruition.

No John, there is no genius about it. Just skill and passion.
