I just got started with wanting to build toy trucks and toys. My Gradfather was a Master Carpenter during the 40s. He loved his hand planes and chisels. Preferred to do things by hand. In the past year I have been restoring his tools and changing the garage to a wood shop. I saw a Wooden tank in a magazine and thought my son would love that. I had been getting wood scraps from a friend that owns a cabinet shop so I could practice planing and such. I looked at the cut list in the magazine and said... I have all that in the garage in scrap wood.
I starting looking online and found this site downloaded the famous lorry truck and got started.
Most of the truck is spruce and I am currently in the painting of it but here are some of the build photos
I have to make two for my son the first is red because he said it looks like a fire truck( daddy is a fireman) and the second has to be blue because that's his favorite color.
I have seen some mods on this truck in the forums and don't be surprised if you see me posting some fire truck mods on the plan.
Thanks for the plan and all the info I got from the site.

Steve

Steve-

Welcome. The build is looking good so far. If it's fire trucks that you are looking for click here . I made the 1932 fire truck and it is a great build. Your son might like the other two, the Fantastika Fire Engine and or the Super ReallyWood Fire Rescue Truck.

Keep up the good work and lets see more pictures.
