Toy Construction #228: Toyota 4Runner #2

09-19-2018 08:50 PM by htl | 6 comments »

Been wanting to try this build for a long time but now I’m beginning to question my sanity, I needed an easy build not this thing. LOL The top and windows aren’t glued in just a look see as my passions was at an end and needed to call it a day.Going to take some fine adjustment but should work out ok? And here’s a picture of my truck. LOL

Toy Construction #227: Toyota 4Runner #1

09-17-2018 09:33 PM by htl | 8 comments »

I keep telling myself I’m going to back off on the builds and then a project that has been rolling around in my head comes out to play.I have owned two prerunners, [the non 4wheel drive taller trucks] and love the look, and feel of them.So this will be a scratch build and hope I can pull it off as there is quite a bit more shape to these modern trucks.Here’s my testing of the waters to see if I’m up to the challenge. I wanted the ribbed floor in the back of the truck so I...

I’m down to fine tuning the look, but hadn’t planned on a 12 wheel rear end so will need to make a couple more wheels.The finish project is here. Working on the mud guards-fenders.

Toy Construction #225: Belly Dump Trailer #2

09-10-2018 08:38 PM by htl | 8 comments »

Got started yesterday on the Toys and Joys Belly Dump Trailer to go with my just finished semi. The two main frame members are about the only thing that doesn’t have some off the wall angle to it so it’s making for an interesting build. As you can see in the picture I glued up the outside of the frame and then added the bracing as I went. I clamped the main brace to the table and as I added parts the glue would glue the parts together but also glue them to the copied ...

Toy Construction #223: Semi Truck Bumper, mud flaps

08-31-2018 09:46 PM by htl | 4 comments »

With this build I keep making things and then come up with something else so if this keeps up I’ll nearly have enough parts for a second truck. LOLI came up with a different front bumper. Was! IS!!! Then on to the mug flaps. I’m going to use two of my extra wheels for the front, not as pretty as the maple one’s but will match up better. That’s it for this trip, hope you all liked them, and thanks for checking the t...

Toy Construction #222: Semi Truck 8 Still playing with the wheels

08-27-2018 10:49 PM by htl | 11 comments »

Just about got them setup.I changed the rims a little bit from the last post.I still can’t make up my mind if I’m going to ebanize them or not, the black looks good but it tends to hide all the work put into the treads.Here’s how I cut the treads.With the stop block and the blade only raised 3/16” or so it’s not a problem to slide the tire up against the fence, then when it hits the stop roll the tire into the blade to make the cut.This is like all things wood wo...

Toy Construction #221: Semi Truck 4.5+2 Playing with some wheels

08-25-2018 09:29 PM by htl | 7 comments »

Figures I’d get started with the wheels.Making 20 of them, 8 for the truck and 8 for a trailer and then 4 extras for another car or maybe the trailer needs 12 wheels?.I already have my fronts.Glued up a bunch a walnut scraps and then band saw them round, then drill out the centers, and need I say sand, sand, sand. LOL I left 1/8” to the back of the outside wheel center so the 1/4” axle holes will help line up the two tires for gluing up I will later drill out the center d...

Toy Construction #219: Semi Truck 3.5

08-20-2018 11:32 PM by htl | 9 comments »

Again got a little more done.Fixed up the front wheel wells and made the sleeper. And playing with a steerable front end, it may not work but its a fun experiment.I kind a like it when the front tires are not pointed to the front, just adds that little extra. These will probable be the front wheels I use but will need to make a ton a back wheels for truck and a trailer. Been trying to come up with a way that the pivot point for the wheels is as close to the frame and tire...

Toy Construction #217: Semi Truck T&J #2

08-12-2018 11:47 PM by htl | 9 comments »

Started on another semi truck, been thinking about building a trailer and thought it would be nice to have the truck ready for it.Doing it this way I’ll make all the tires at one time and they’ll all match up, which has been a problem some times.I never seem to make them the same way. :-[Just some quick shots before I headed out the door.
