Couple more Peter B trucks that I have made.

Again, wheels are 60mm diameter, finished in Cynthia's beeswax.

First one is a concrete truck, as per Peter B original.  The concrete bowl seemed to come out ok, thanks to Peter B's proportionate calculations.  The other one is a fuel tanker.

Both the concrete bowl and tank were made on a small wood lathe I have.  Concrete bowl is pine, not sure what wood the tank is as it was in my shed and about the right size.

Some of the photos are not too good, but kitchen bench is best spot I could find.  Will have to experiment a bit more.

I am speechless. These wood toy trucks-the tanker and concrete mixer-are perfectly designed. Congrats on a great project!
