« Part 50: Coal Train Build Shows the difference in size Part 51 of Toy costruction series Part 52: 32 Lincoln Kb 2.5 Spent the day making A wheel. »

I got looking at the tanker truck and it’s not the one in the picture.
I got it on sale at Grizzly for $4 so will get it’s turn but will take quite a bit a mind games to do what I want so holding off on it right now.

Got the Lincoln at the same time and price and is a very simple build.
I’ve never built an old production car so this could be fun.
Here’s the build picture.

I really wanted and need to change the shop around but once I got figuing on the car the shop changed went out the window for now.
This is another quick build there’s not really much to it but really this is what I’m into right now quick and fun.
The bonnet and roof look to be the only real shaping well and the fender.
Here’s what I got done today and a couple hours yesterday.
Cut out the frame and body parts.

Glued up for the hood.

I still can’t be-leave I made that SS miter gauge to work with my dewalt, I have used it a bunch since I made it and it really has made my life easier.

Cutting the hood at such an odd angle and being so thick, felt better using a clamp to keep it in place while I cut it.


On small stuff like this I much prefer to make it in two cuts[when using the fence], just feels safer to me but with this I wanted a clean edge so the 10” blade and a clamp got it done.

Here I’m sanding the hood which turned out to be quite interesting, but the SS was up to the challenge. lol
The front and back of the hood both had different shaped patterns to follow so it was quite fun getting the SS set up to sand it.
If they would have told what the angle was to do it sure would have made it so much easier.

Its starting to come together.
I can’t be leave I have no pictures of the radiator work.
I used that grove making trick again and also on the seats as you will see.


Got the roof glued up for the next time I get in the shop and also the trunk box.
As you can see I glued it up in strips the hood was done the same way so they should match up I hope.

Here’s the seats I used the grove trick hoping they will look like pleated seats.

This is all cherry but the seats are mahogany.

Sorry Ducky but the tracks will have to wait, I just have no interest in making any at this time.

That’s all folks.

Bruce,
Looking good as all your other builds.
I think one would say your right on TRACK with this build. Just had to say that.
Bruce
P.S. At this moment the Bruce’s have it.

Bruce I’m having trouble keeping TRACK myself. LOL
John it’s like I said it’s supper simple but I haven’t hit the fenders yet, never done one of those before.
The tank truck is the same way no frame super simple.
I get the impression these are the type of plans they started with and have advanced to the more complicated ones now a days.
When I start the truck I’m going to add a frame and who knows what.
May not even be a tanker when I’m done with it.
Was looking at some of the old hot rod trucks would be cool to go that way me thinks.

I’m getting to know you, yet you keep amazing me with your speed, which would be impressive enough but when you add in the quality of your work… well, far from shabby.

I used that grove making trick again and also on the seats as you will see.
Is this in reference to the door kerfs as well?

I’ll give you “E” for effort for getting in b4 me, however, unless this series is a lead up to a fishing blog this does not get you off the hook,

Sorry Ducky but the tracks will have to wait, I just have no interest in making any at this time.
I an not forgetting the tracks and will keep hounding you till you get back on TRACK(s). Don’t close your eyes.. I may have found a cure for my fear of flying (called ”Build-a-track-a-phobia”).
Wish there was such a thing as a yellicon.

Way back yesterday No! Way Way Back a month or more waaaay back I showed the groving tip for getting even groves for radiaters and the like.
Come to think of it, it might not have even been in this universe that I talked about it but I think so???.
Even before the 3 Bruces were made known to each other that far back.

Door kerfs were done on my sliding miter saw set high.

Ducky please don’t get the YELLICON after me I don’t think I can handle the volume,I’m already def in one ear and can’t hear out the other..

The grooving tip was here.
http://lumberjocks.com/htl/blog/82578
But was used in my very first post for the bulldozer radiator.
I guess I could have done a better job explaining it but???
I remember now that it was on another site[universe] where someone was having trouble getting it to work and I expanded on the idea..

Having some fun coming up with a wheel for this build[lincoln]. LOL
Dutchy & Ducky I think you’ll like it, being the tire nuts you are.
I hope I can pull it off.

Sorry Bruce johnstoneb I keep calling you John I’m slow but I catch on after awhile.
