Hello hope you are all well, I'm still building model here in the UK. I've just finish the Ford Bronco here are the images.

109_1101.jpg  109_1102.jpg  109_1104.jpg  I've made changes to the trailer I use 5/8" for the base instead of 3/4" as per plan and 1/4" for the side instead of 1/2" and added some trim.

109_1105.jpg  109_1107.jpg  I have put 3/4" x 1.1/2" wheels on the mud truck with fender extension as in image above.

Hi Shedbuddie. What a great build. I really like your wood choice and how you used the different colors to complement one another and deciding where to use them in the project.

Thanks Toy Builder Bob for your comments the plans are good and clear to work to, I changed the the thickness of timber on the trailer because it looked a bit clumsy (3/4" and 1/2" thick) compared to the trucks.

Thanks, being small the wheels were bit of a challenge I cut the groves on the table saw not all evenly spaced but look ok.
