The engine is only one piece of wood. Not that much work. The fenders however is a different story as you can see below.

Very clever, you are a real problem solver Dutchy.

Love the way the grill turned out and when the wheel wells are added it’s going to really be worth of applause for sure.

ralbuck I was thinking about that today.
As you can see from Dutchys work.
He’s put more effort in the two wheel wells and grill than most people put in building a toy but man o man what a nice MANLY toy he will have when it’s done.

It’s all in what you want.
Do you want something to play in the dirt. [which is fine I should add]
Or do you want something out of the ordinary, some thing to be proud of for many years to come.

O and by the way great work Dutchy!!!

Thanks all.

rjR Do you have trouble with the time I’m putting in? For me it’s a way of relaxation. After many years I finally no longer have to look at the clock and it feels fantastic. When the truck is finised it’s placed in a showcase next or maybe behind the other models and I love building and looking at them, so I agree with what htl AKA Bruce. said.

I am watching your blog with interest and love how you solve the construction details .
Such fine work and the end result should look fantastic .
You are right about relaxing and ignoring the clock ,I have let the clock battery run out and don’t plan on replacing it as I also don’t care anymore about the time spent in the shop other then it makes me feel good most of the time.

BTW I have been the whole day in the shop. I was forgotten to look at the clock :)
