I think pine is hard to cut with a scroll saw. Most any hardwood is easier.

Looks like your pretty good with a band saw.

Hi 
Your model and your workmanship, especially the paint job, is amazing. I love your choice of colours and i raise my hat to you lol as i have only ever painted one model, my first, and it will probably be my last.
All the best

The road grader finished. May put the doors on later for added strength.

Next up is the dump truck.

Thanks for all comments, Nick

This is the dumper truck cut out with a scroll saw, using easy to find pine wood.

Found it fairly hard to cut but persevered and it came out ok, still need to practice more.

Will post more as the build progresses. Thanks for following this build.

Truck body primed with 3 coats sanded with 240 grit between coats. Undercoated with flat yellow acrylic paint. Then 2 top coats of yellow gloss acrylic.

Attached the fenders after painting this time, looks much better.

Just need to make the dump box and put on doors and hub caps.

Don't rush, be patient. Make all pieces and do a dry build.

Most of all, enjoy yourself, I did.



This is fantastic GB!! That's exactly what we want to hear...

Dumper Truck finished, that's the whole set done now. Will photograph them together tomorrow as it's raining here.

Did some mods to the plans:-
As I used pine I had trouble using a Forstner bit for the headlight holes, (kept tearing wood) so used small dowel painted silver instead.

The detail on the tipper body was hard for me as it was so thin so used matchsticks with the heads cut off instead, seemed to do the trick.

 These were great fun to build, even with a band saw and using pine.
 Thanks for putting the plans up John and Cynthia, best wishes Nick
