My workshop is in the loft so I'm limited to small light machinery.

Very nice.  You really put a lot of detail in the wheels.  Keep sharing.  My space is small and I make the small plans too.  It works well.

Thanks for the feedback much appreciated. I was a amazed to have them called museum pieces, I know their are bits not right. Will get there one day,   Thanks

Answer to Tony's question
All pieces sanded with 120 to 400
Paint with RUST-OLEUM TOUCH and finished with RUST-OLEUM CLEAR FINISH SATIN
LIBERON water based concentrated wood dye can mixed with paint for more shades of colours.
WOOD three coats MDF four all finished with three coats clear satin. All toy safe.
All sanded between coats with 240 to 400.

It takes time but think it gives a good finish. NO RUSH it's a hobby  All the best Geoff47

Just like to add that I have been following your Forum for a year now. Thanks for all the tips and help the Forum members share.

All the best Geoff47

Geoff47, This is beautiful and fantastic work.  I must ask however, is this a toy that you will keep or sell.  If selling at craft festival, etc what price would you put on it ?

Hi PaPa Jack  I wouldn't have clue what to charge. Here in the UK it is hard people making toys for craft show's, I wish we did. Thanks for nice comments.

Admittedly my sales experience is limited, but if I were selling this I would price it at least $50 and maybe as high as $80 US.
