Ick Asked in the last Ford van build. ””You may say simple, but I’m impressed by the compound convex curve of the hood, with a matching curve on both the radiator and the ...

Toy Construction #196: Gatto Reading train build Tender is on the table #2

03-24-2018 11:01 PM by htl | 8 comments »

I heard you all and really out of my own model making addiction I got the tender started yesterday.It took a day for the trucks and another for this.Trying to match the sides of the train with the tender so dark half way up then a touch a maple, then walnut itty bitty stuff.There’s really not that much to the tender other than the pain to make trucks.O! And it’s like 14” long!!!

Toy Construction #184: Nailing things down and front suspension

02-15-2018 12:06 AM by htl | 6 comments »

I’ve been calling it a Mack but it looks a lot more like a Kenworth T880 Dump Truck to me so far. Here’s some better pictures of how I did the front suspension.I will be adding a wood spacer on top of the spring to keep it in place.But once the wheels are in place there shouldn’t be much side ways movement. Then screwed down the dump box frame and the cab. Then I used some dowels to hold the wheel wells in place till I was sure it would all work out.Got ...

It’s now time for some fun after sanding all the parts especially the inside parts that I won’t be able to get the sander at later on.So thought the dash board partition should come next plus one for the fire wall in the back but after I got them glued in and go to looking at it, the back partition is to tall so off the the band saw to shorten it with out taking it out.Then it hit me I still needed to cut out for the wheel wells. [If I wasn’t going for the larger tires I ...

Toy Construction #23: Starting the planing of the future truck

03-06-2016 08:33 PM by htl | 15 comments »

Starting a new post for my next build which will not be the logging truck as planned but a truck that will match up with the Excavator.I may leave the frame long at first for the well drilling rig but want a truck and trailer for the excavator. I like the look and feel of the excavator much more than the drilling rig so we will have more fun and enjoy it more building for that.I’m thinking of using the Mack LR as my main body type but Dutchy showed me the DAF truck from Europe which ...
