« Part 103: Power Wagon 6x6 building the transfer case, drive shafts and wheels Part 104 of Toy Construction series Part 105: Power Wagon 6x6 More body work »

Been out in my back so been a slow go with this one.
Here’s the beginning of the body work.
Using oak and walnut for this build but the interior is cherry.

To me they went about the body work in a strange round about way but should come out all right in the end.

I thought they would look like coke bottles but look more like wine bottles to me.

Cabis starting to look like a vintage Power Wagon!

Some of the real ones are even still around; but the 4×4’s not the6×6’s. At least a very very few of them!

I guess I should have said tequila bottle, not a beer or wine drinker but tequila that’s another story. LOL

It looks kinda strange right now but once I get the doors and running boards on it will all come together.
