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...
Starting on the T&J delivery Truck.
Here is the finished truck. I got carried away and made the wheels too wide so not going to be able to have 4 wheels in the back but that’s ok cause I can use them on my next project. LOL Here’s a picture of how big the wheels would have been if I had gone full scale, in fact this Hummer wheel is 1/4” smaller than they called for on the bump truck. That would have been one monster truck if I would have gone full size!!! I think the four fatter wheels will...
Here’s the Project Post Tried blacking out the fenders and it turned out ok, walnut is a much blacker wood when stained but the oaks wood grain peeking through looks pretty good. but won’t be doing it again I think. The danish oil should look good.
When Gr8Hunter posted his dozer It was just so nice I had to get a move on and build one.His project here I already have the tracks and some left over hydraulics from my excavator so all the really hard work is already done just need to build a body and put er together.My first dozer here.My excavator So here’s my starter pictures.I will be using oak and walnut and a little cherry.These are store bought plans from Toys and joys, they make some really great plans and are a ball to ...
Just about done just needs some bumpers but way to hot to keep going so.The floor boards fenders and the radiator were the main projects for this build. Starting to get the feel for the fenders but they definitely slow you down if you want to get them right. The radiator was a half day project didn’t really know what I wanted but it all came out after like 4 tries. Tested out some walnut danish oil which would be like putting on a dark stain and the pine...
Just some shots of how it’s coming along.Here’s how the radiator was put together. that’s all for now folks.
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...
Well I finally got the shop set up so broke down and made some really quick tracks for the train.Made it 4’ long to fit on a shelf. Cut a 4’ by 3” base for the tracks then clamped it down to the table and used spacers to get the spacing just right and consistent. T&J wants you to build a complete rail in I shape but as I shrunk the train down I made T shaped rails and cut a grove in the rail road ties to be glued in to.I glued all the ties down th...
Just had to get away from all the small stuff needed for the train engine so built the tender today. Start Nearly finished day one.Thought I’d try and do like one of Dutchys great blogs and let the pictures do the talking for once.Now this is the kind a builds I really like still have to make the wheel covers and add the water tanks in the back but other than that it’d a done deal and had a lot of fun building it.
