Birch plywood. Minwax stain. And Minwax Polyurethane. I’m in Arkansas. Very little options in wood.

Yes. Has a few holes every so often. I patched with wood filler.

Looks to me like you are dipping your cars. I tried this once with some wheels but soon discovered that I could do finish wheels almost as fast and do a better job with a brush.

If you can find the time, I would like very much to hear about your experience and techniques you used. I'm sure I'm not alone.

I did dip them. It’s just for me and my nephew. Some extras for friends. I’m not selling. I actually dipped three times to get a glossy coat.

I just started building toys last September. I have been doing woodworking and scrollwork for the past five years. Mainly trinkets and different projects like “wall art”. I found a corvette style pattern one day on the internet and did the best I could to replicate.

My three year old nephew now plays with that first car every time he’s here. So I found this website and fell in love with these patterns.

I don’t have the elaborate setups that I’ve seen one the forum. My father actually bought me the Excalibur 21 just two weeks ago and actually just used it for the first time today working on an elegant picture frame for my boss’s wedding.

Before I was using for five years the Porter Cable scroll saw. Except for it’s not the best at vibration due to its light weight, that saw has been very long and well used workhorse. I have the normal tools including table saw and drill press.

I’m not the best when coming to painting and laquering. I’ll try and post some of the other projects for people to see on the other forum.

I appreciate any feed back anyone can give. I’m currently working on the antique trucks and car sets. In total 12 vehicles/ 2 each. I have finished 8 of them. One for my nephew and one for myself. I am hoping to finish soon. I work out of state through the week, so build time gets a bit short. I will post when complete.

I believe I’m going to make the Super Mac set next.

There is a lot of how to info here. The forum isn't huge yet. I suggest you go back to the beginning browse through all of the posts if you have time. You will find a lot of tips and probably more questions to ask.

My nephew loves them! Just wanted to share his experience. Like I have read so many times, it’s great experience to build these plans. But the joy the kids have is so much more! Thanks toymakingplans.com.
