I have been working on a set of Jeep that Osni Chioveto designed and marketed through Toymaking Plans. Here are some pictures of the parade...

Enjoy!!

Wow!
What an epic task!
Whilst I also find it easier to build in small batches, the thought of tackling 20+ at a time is daunting. All those little bits to keep track of, etc, the production planning becomes as much a part of the job as the build itself.  I have no doubt that the last one will turn out as beautifully executed as the first three.
Thanks for the step-by-step pic spread too.

  I presume you have a captive market for this fleet?   You will have enough to become a toy "arms dealer" to a small country. [biggrin]

Wow! That's some production line going on. The end products are top notch. And I thought making 3 or 4 at a time was hard! I tip my hat to you, sir!

Thanks Wombat,

I sometimes go crazy and start cutting and using up my scrap.

I am trying to build an inventory before I try a craft show. I also have a lead on a consignment store as well.

Denis, if you do not mind personal question, what is the price that you get or are anticipating they will bring.  I know it is different in every area.   That has been my biggest challenge going to shows and planning building schedue.  Seems like nothing is ever the same.  Great build !    PaPa Jack

Those look great! I also agree with a production line method. For me 12 is enough (10 to sell, 1 for me to keep as a sample and one to give as a gift) before i get bored and want to make a different item. But for items like that Jeep i can see that 20 maybe the right amount because you know those will sell quickly!

BTW i am a big fan of those Osni wheels. They look sturdy, modern, sporty. A good design that appeals to teens and adults as well as kids, and no messing with tire treads that never match up, or those"sandwiched" style tires that use 2-3 cut wheels.

Arrrghhh!   I can resist anything except temptation.
Just gone and purchased a set of these plans myself, such an inspirational post.
Also thinking of my son's recent new car purchase where the dealer gave him a nice gift upon collection, and my thoughts turned to the local Jeep dealers.... I may hawk a few around them.

Thanks Denis

Hello PaPa Jack,

As for expected price, I would like to get about $40to $45 each. I will need talk to a store about consignment and see it that is  good price.

Thanks for asking.
