« Part 199: One More Train #2 Part 200 of Toy Construction series Part 201: 1929 Ford Van Wheels, fenders »

After the Reading train I was wanting something a little easier plus I just like these 3&4 day projects.
This is a Toys and Joys plan.

Will need to figure out some spoke wheels.

G’day Bruce.
You don’t let the tools rest, just clear the sawdust and get going.
Looking good sir.

Do you use the drawings or are you making this model without them? To me it looks not that difficult doing it without.

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 windshield. Maybe you’ve covered it before, but how are you achieving this?

Grhunter I’m trying to make a set a spoke wheels like you would buy at the store but wish now I had made the ones your showing I’m beginning to think their easier to make.
I just don’t have the right hole saw size but that will be bought tomorrow. lol
I’m building this one for some friends but really like this project so will be making one for me [out of oak and walnut] with the fancier spokes, me thinks.

Dutchy I was wanting to get the shape just right and the plans with shipping was just $17.50 so went with the store bought plans.
Plus not feeling that well, so not up to all the extra thinking needed, just wanted to have some fun building this old timer.

Now to the build!!!
I used my tread making jig to drill the spoke holes.

Then played with the roof.

ICK Check out this how to on my 32 Lincoln Kb

It doesn’t show it but I glue a pattern to the front and back of the hood to find the shape, then you need to find the angle to set the disk sander to make the two patterns match up while sanding.
