It's my pleasure to share with you pictures of some trucks based on subjetc book plans : I really enjoyed making those and add some colors.
They are all in pine wood, hand-painted with none toxic wood-varnish.

These are fantastic! Thank you for posting! Your whimsical painting really brings the toys to life. Can you share your painting techniques?

Thanks for your comments !

Product is wood stain to reveal the veining of the wood. 0 - wood stain.JPG 

No secret ... first of all all parts must be very well sanded, grain 320.
Before painting - to avoid bleeding- I mark out the surfaces by drawing lines with the tip of a pen without ink.
Then with a small brush I start painting carefully. When dry, after a light sanding the lines must be redrawn. Therefore I use a painting point marker and a ruler.

When done, it's time to glue all parts and ... a last sanding, grain 400.    [smile]
