Excellent work Ed. 
You are a very busy woodworker. Your Grandson is going to be happy with these ones.

Thanks for sharing.

I like what you have done with these. What is the title of the book and the date of copyright? The designs are surprisingly modern.

Just a guess, and I may be wrong, but I think the book title is
"Scroll Saw Toys and Vehicles" by Stan Graves. Publisher is Fox Chapel.
IBSN is 1-56523-115-5

I found it at the local library - I have it laying in front of me as I post this
and the toys look to be nearly identical....looks like Ed may have tweaked
the plans a bit, as there are a few differences.

My $.02

You hit the nail on the head "dustyoldman"

This is a very interesting toy building book. And yes I took a few minor liberty's mostly by not adding a part here and there...LOL

I too have this book in my woodworking library. I've had it for about 10 years and haven't looked at it since I made something from it when I first bought it. Guess I need to dust it off and get busy! The plans still seem to stand up today.
