The semi-trailers and dump trucks are my designs. The grasshoppers  all I changed on them was the screws for the legs and wheels. I made wooden pegs which I thought be safer and the legs move more smoother.

Very nice - the trucks have just enough detail but look like a fast, easy build. Great colors and finish.

Hi Cindy,
Thanks for the compliment. They were easy to built but the painting took longer and they all had 3 coats of paint. Just have to polish them with brown paper and coat them with clear acrylic gloss to protect the paint work.
Cheers Graham.

Good point Graham - the brown paper is like a ~4000 grade sandpaper and can do a good job buffing that final coat of color.

Very nice Graham!  Thanks for sharing with us.  I may make those grasshoppers at some point.  I think kids will love them.

Banjo57G -  They look great. I like the way you used only two colours and alternated them from project to project. That was a really good idea.
