Edit 8 June 2015 Finished truck can be seen over here
One of my preferences in woodworking is wooden toys. I have a special interest in trucks and the model of the Old Time Farm Truck by Ron Fritz, Creeksidewoodshop.com on the Google Sketchup 3D warehouse drew my attention.
His model was in imperial dimensions and since I work in metric I redrew the truck in Sketchup with metric dimensions and also simplified it somewhat . You can convert imperial to mm in sketchup and the other way round, but you end up with mm figures which are quite unusable. Much easier to just redraw in mm. I also added scenes to the model depicting the different components and dimensions that can be printed and taken to the shop. (My shop is much too dusty to house a computer and I also don’t have the luxury of a house and shop computer)
In this blog I plan to detail my build experience of the truck.
The next entry will depict the the chassis and axle housings.
