This project is currently on my bench and is a work in process.  I've got the trailer and the two horses complete and I'm working on the matching  1950'ish pickup truck right now. I should have it complete next week sometime.

Nice, my type of project. Will the truck be matching colors as the Trailor?

Bucko,  Thanks.  Yes, it will have a matching paint job.  I'm also adding a few bails of straw to the project.  The straw is not a part of the original design of the project.

TommyT - Looking good so far. Can't wait to see the complete package.
You did an excellent job in cutting out the window detail and making it fit into the sides, as well as the horses.
So, what wood did you use for this project?

This a assortment of different woods.  The 3/4" stuff is MDF, the 1/4" is maple (from Home Depot on line), the 3/8 is some pine and some cherry.  I used mostly leftover woods from my wood pile since I was going to paint it anyway.

I normally hate to use good hardwood when I'm going to paint, but it just so happened that I had the right amount and size I needed in my scrap pile for most of it.  I did have to run to Home Depot and get a 2ft X4ft piece of MDF, but I needed it anyway.

Still working on the truck.  I'm changing up the way I normally cut and paint.  Normally I cut everything first----then paint, then assemble.

This time I'm cutting, then painting each piece after they are cut...cut the next piece, paint it.etc.  It seems to break up things a little and so far I like it.  Maybe I'll go back to my old way, Ill see.  Hope to have the truck and the completed project done by this weekend.

TommyT - Thanks for the breakdown - Udie
