Technically these are 2 of John's plans as the profiles came from him.
Bodys are made of 2 pcs of Birch 2x4 glued together and band sawed. Forstner bit for the wheel wells.
The Big wheels are hole saw cores and lines from a band saw . Axels are 3/8"
As this is made for a 4 yr old, It needs to be tough.

Needs to be clear coated and then the interior , windshield ,headlights and tail lights can be installed

More pics to come

Looks great Leftfinger. The upholstery on the seats came out really good. The colors are great and the added "mud" on the truck adds realism.

If that's true We are both in for a world of fun

I can not look at a toy or a blueprint with out seeing how I would do it different

Blueprints are like cookbooks to me

More like general guidelines [idea][nono][biggrin]
