This is the Grand Wrangler Trailer & 4 Wheeler. 

This one was a tough build for me it had a number of errors, but I let John know and he and his team put them right.

I wasn’t too thrilled about how the green came out, I wanted a darker green.

All in all it was a pretty good project. But I would not recommend it to a beginner.

I am now working on the 1934 Jaguar Coupe with Boat and it coming along quite well.

Thanks for lookin’ Grand Wrangler Trailer & 4Wheeler.JPG  ATV.JPG  ATV2.JPG  100_4878.JPG  100_4879.JPG  100_4881.JPG

Wow! It was well worth the effort and thanks for the corrections on the plans. This is one that Lloyd provided and I did not proof it well thinking it was OK. My apologies. This is a beautifully done piece of toymaking!

If I may ask, for those of us who have purchased this set and have not had a chance to build it yet, how can we find out what the corrections are?

Thanks!

Hey Bill, I lost the emails with the corrections in them. I had a computer update and cannot find them since that happened. Could you resend them to me and I will post them on the forum. You can post them on the forum also if you wish. My apologies to everyone.

Sure, John, no problem.

Here are the errors:

In the Jeep Grand Wrangler:

Page 39: Item 16 - the small hole should be 1/4'’ not ½” to fit into item 18.
Item 17 – the diameter should be ½” not 5/8” to fit in to item 18.

On page 32 Item 4 the call out for the front axle is 7/16” diameter and on page 33 Item 4 the call out for the rear axle is 3/8” diameter. Since 3/8” is a mite tight you might want to go with the 7/16” for both.

In the 4 Wheeler & Trailer:

Page 31: Item 8 – the dimensions and view is wrong. The dimensions should be:
1/8” X 1-1/2” X 4-3/8” not 1/8” X 1-1/2” X 3-7/8” and the full sized view should be resized. See the PDF attached.

Item 9 – The dimensions are wrong. The dimensions should be:
¾” X 1-1/2” X 1-1/8” not 1” X 1-1/2” X 1-1/2”
Page 43: Item 20 – the dimensions are correct but the side view measures more than ½”.

I hope that will help in making this plan for all that have not started as of yet.

Shanwood-

On the plans I bought there is no page 49.  The plans for the actual Jeep only has 43 pages. Item 16 is on page 39.

Page 32 and page 33 is the pattern for the Jeep’s sides with doors and doses have all call outs.

As far as the Trailer, page 45 is the last page and has photos of the complete project with the boxes. Yes the item 8 is a mite short, sorry about that, I’ll have to correct that. See the new attachment for the corrected Item 8. My item 20 is on page 34 not 56.

Just wondering, when did you buy your plans because you have a lot of differences in page numbering. I think I bought mine in May.

I bought my plans on the 19/ august 2016, they only go to page 43 , I have made these plans and the problem I had was with the front bumper on the front of the jeep, I had to modify it twice to get it to fit, it was a lot larger than it should have been, and with the trailer the frame under the trailer was right size but the top section was  1/4 inch to small, just fitted the quad bike but cannot get it to roll off as the bike which it the right size  is just 1/4 inch too wide , but it ended up ok in the end, I did not have any issue with the quad bike size it was correct,
just could not follow the corrections posted , we must have different copies of the plans, the only problems I had were as I have stated above. but have notice on my plan part 8 is 1/8 x 1-1/2x 3-7/8, my part 9 is 5/8 x 1"x5 1/2  it seems this is wrong as well but I did work it out, it is almost 9 months since I finished it and my memory is not good but this is what I remember having the trouble with
