Daniel, this is a skillfully done wood toy jeep. The finish is pro-how did you obtain such a high gloss? The enlargement is perfect and is true to the original design. Did you use a CNC or is this handwork? We look forward to seeing a lot more from you.

Thank you John for your kind remarks it came out pretty nice but I know I can do better.but my great granddaughter will be happy. I used to coats of Krylon white primer.sanded with 220. then three coats of blue krylon sanded with 400 last coat. Then two coats of krylon crystal clear. The fenders & seats were done in folkart blue metallic craft paints.I did autobody paint and repair for 30 yrs. before going to work at a casino.Next time I'm going to try auto primer you can mix it thicker and it fills better then Krylon.

Very nice work Daniel. I find the reward comes when you see the recipient's eyes light up, as I'm sure they will here.

Wish my 1st toy had looked so good, well done.
