Hi everyone....
I would like to share with you a new set of farm vehicles that I have recently finished.
I have extended The Flair box trailer from 3-4 side panels from the original set of Australian plans
They are made from Beech, Walnut, Birch and for the first time I have used Poplar wood..
The wheels are 1 1/2in, 1 3/4in and 2 1/2in and the vehicles range from 4-8in long...
Hope that you like them and any comments/feedback are very welcome.... 20180819_122356.jpg  20180819_114603.jpg  20180819_114754.jpg  20180819_114918.jpg  20180819_114929.jpg  20180819_121407.jpg  20180819_121431.jpg  20180819_121532.jpg  20180819_122031.jpg  20180819_122117.jpg  20180819_122152.jpg

Those are some good looking toys. 

What did you use for the hitch pin?

Hi guys thanks to you all for your kind words....they mean a lot to me...
In answer to your question Badbob the hitch pins are shelf support pins from the shelving section of an old wardrobe that we dismantled and they are also in chest of drawers, bookcases etc as well.
I just looked at the pile I had and thought that they would look pretty cool and be stronger than a piece of dwelling....They have been superglue in so hopefully small teeth won't pull them out lol....
I don't know if you can buy them, as I haven't looked, but I'd imagine you can from somewhere....i hope so as I have only 2 left lol....
Take care guys, all the best.

Found them on Amazon: $4.95 for 25.

There are literally thousands of listings on eBay for stainless steel dowel pins. It would take some digging but I'm sure you could find something that would work. 

There are also many listings for shelf pins. Probably can get them even cheaper there.

Hello, I am a new customer of this site, but have been building/selling toys for over 7 years.  I have noticed your username a lot and I am impressed.  I am looking for this exact size and age range for my next year's toy choices.  Is this a plan I can get somehow?  My Facebook site is Simplypinetoys, I am not a robot, just a retired USN of 20 years.  Thanks.

Hi everyone just a quick update for this set of farm vehicles i made.
I used some offcuts from the Flair Box Trailer and made this Flatbed trailer that just slots into the trailer chassis.
Thought that you would like to see it and im open to any feedback/comments etc from you all.
Take care......
