Hi Guy,
I have not been on for a wild because have been working 7 days a week, so have not done
any toy for for ages. So have been doing a bit of night toy making .
Have made the truck and the 3 Tri-Plane, the first I have made for month, hope I can get time for more.
Just have to finish sanding the planes and then paint them.
Hope you enjoy George

We are glad to see you back on the Forum! this is some fine toymaking. The biplanes are impressive and the finish on the truck is very professional. What type of paint and technique did you use on the truck?

Very nice! [thumb].
I like the tri-wing plane's. I could almost see a wing walker on top LOL.

I better not let my 5yr old grandson (Boss) see these as he will be after me to make him 1 or 3 [smile]

Thanks for sharing.

Great Job.  I can see we need you working less making a living, just kidding.  Also, goooooood to see you back.
I would like to know how you made the tail section.  Is it groove cut into the body?

Really nice paint job on the truck.  Congrats.

Thanks guys,
Hi Ken took a photo of tail for you, this one is only a butt join.
Before I paint I will put a small dowel from the bottom up
to make it a bit stronger I have made five of these pretty
well tested 14 grandkids none broken as of yet, but you could
could cut it into the tail with no worries.
John I used Rust-Oleum paint sprayed, two primer coats and
3 top coats sanded between each coats, finished with there clear coat
 hope this helped explain it for you.

George

These are great.  I like the tail design of the Triplane.  I like the simple but fun design of the truck.
