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 #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 #123: Delivery Truck Grill & interier

11-29-2016 12:15 AM by htl | 8 comments »

The pictures on the plans for the front of the truck just don’t seem to make much sense to me but I ended up getting something done on it. It really doesn’t look like I got much done but the front end and grill were a pain to figure out so just went my own way and got er done. Had some fun working on the seats and steering wheel.I got to remember to put in a shifter before I glue up the top.The steering wheel was supposed to look like one with finger grips but looks...

Toy Construction #57: Tanker Truck #1

06-03-2016 12:11 AM by htl | 14 comments »

Started playing with the plans for the tanker truck.T&J has two tanker trucks, this one was put out in 1985 if I remember right and is a very simple plan with 2 pages to work with.The newer one is much more elaborate having tool boxes and oil drums on the sides.It had fenders going to the tool boxes and stopping. The one I have has full fenders but no tool boxes and the tank is rounder. I’m going to be copying the squarer looking tank but still not sure about the tools boxes y...

Toy Construction #32: Truck cab and back axial

04-03-2016 12:16 AM by htl | 13 comments »

Finished up the inside. I sanded down the engine compartment top a little to much and the engine woldn’t fit so had to cut the inside top to fix.Shopsmith to the rescue one more time. Had to square up the side before I could glue and clamp her up. Now the wind shield can be framed in. Here’s how the back axial works, and it will pivot for bumps.The axial is drilled then the dowel frame members are glued in. The axial bracket fits into the tru...

Toy Construction #25: Making Tires or is it Tyres. LOL

03-13-2016 02:03 AM by htl | 6 comments »

The spell checker says tire. LOL Been holding my breath waiting for Dutchy to blog his wheels and the wait was not wasted a great post.This will help me out when I start sawing out the treads but first I needed to cut out the wheels to round and so that’s what I did today.Almost exactly like Jan did it but using different tools to accomplish the same exact thing.The wheels will be 3” or just shy of that.I had no idea what size to cut the two out sides and center for the wheels...
