Hi Friends

Wanted to show some of the new toys leaving the FuzzyDuck Shop today, by rail, road, and air to their new ports of call.
We are hoping they will be happy in their new homes.

The two Martin Motors cars both have baked bottoms then were finished with Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane.  The bigger one is redwood and is 1-1/2" thick and was cut with a #5 Scroll Saw blade, and the little one is made of pine and is 3/4" thick cut with a #2 Scroll Saw blade.

The train is made from 1" laminated wood from Home Depot.  I think it was intended for shelving or something, but I wanted it because it was 1" and that is hard to find in most stock wood. The top of the coal car and the wheels were baked in an oven.  There is no finish on this train except for Cynthia's Beeswax and Mineral Past wax.

The car carrier is made of wood and spray painted with Krylon primers and paint, and is finished with Krylon's Triple Thick Clear Spray.  I did modify the trailer just a little bit.  I made it taller so I could use 1/2" plywood for the top and bottom decks the cars sit on.
I wanted to have more gluing area than the 1/4" the plan called for.  Also I changed the shape of the trailer just a little bit so the decks would line up straight with the trailer.  Again I wanted as much gluing surface as possible.  The tractor is a little wider to fit in front of the bigger trailer.

The little plane is also spray painted with Krylon spray paint.

All are made from Toymakingplans.com patterns.

Hope the Customers like them.

Ken - Of course your customers will like them - how can they not - they look great.
Good idea about changing the top and bottom trailer decks to 1/2", I'll have to keep that in mind.

Another great bunch of toys.  Good choice on the easter colors for the carrier.  And nice tip on the 1" thick wood.  I think I may take a look in the stair tread area.  Cindy

Thanks All for the kind words.
   George:  I have built several of these, and when I sent one to my daughter in Ill for my Grandson the trailer broke apart in shipping, that is why I changed the trailer just a little bit.  Making the decks thicker and changing the sides to give me more gluing surface.
Good luck on your first car carrier.  It is a fun toy, and the kids like the bright colors.

Cindy: The Easter Colors were not planned ahead, but sounds like a great idea for this time of year.  Because I painted the truck and trailer a dark color, I wanted all the cars to be lighter, thus the pastel colors.
