« Part 123: Delivery Truck Grill & interier Part 124 of Toy Construction series Part 125: Delivery truck wheels »

There seems to be a lot more to this project than I would have guessed.
Finished up most of the grill didn’t want to add head light till I see how everything comes together.
The step behind the grill was a pain.
Also got the front fenders on as they were part of the steps.

But had a ball building the front bumper.
Made it all out of one piece of wood.

Got looking at the pictures and have a ton of the bumper witch I love and nearly nothing on the grill and steps. lol
More bumper pictures. lol

Here’s what it looked like when I first made it and then changed it up a bit.

Had enough of the bumper now? lol

Painted up the inside so I can glue on the top.

I love my little daisy steering wheel!!! LOL

Starting to look like one of those Isusu trucks that run around.

Lots of work; but looking good.

The bumper bar looks great, YES I too like the steering wheel BUT the best is the laminated timbers on the rear of the cabin & seat….

Nice bumper #4... but one crash and it’ll be a pile of mangled toothpicks…

Also like the neglected fender. Is that one piece too... read that question carefully (I deliberately spelled it slowly)!

That coat of warmth really makes the contrasting timbers pop.

Thanks Ducky for getting me to check out some pictures of the truck.
The plans for the fenders didn’t make much sense to me, never thought to check out some picture of the truck.
It’s funny on every other build I would print out interesting pictures of a build but the one time I really could have used some I didn’t have any. :+[
They left out some key parts back behind the fender from my way of looking at things, so maybe tomorrow I’ll erase all the work I did today and start over. WAAAAAAA!!!!! LOL
Or can I just make extra wide wheels to use up all that great fender width?

I seem to be having a lot of trouble with my last couple a builds maybe I need to go back to toy building.

Looks good so far. Now dont get discouraged and start SKIMPING OUT on the details to finish it up (as you have been known to do )

#4, I was not criticising/questioning the shape of the fender. Just wanted to say that you neglected a biography of it. If I was those upside down bent Us, I would feel left out (and right out for the other side one).

Next time bring a translator with you cause it got me all confused sometimes I just don’t understand little ducks.

That’s OK #4, the missus always says that most of the time I don’t understand myself… however, next time use a black duck translator not your normal cutesey fluffy yellow duck one.

There really aren’t that many little black ducks compared to.

And one just wouldn’t cooperate.

And the other one just didn’t care one way or the other.

So you got the yeller one.

This is what the missus accuses me of, because of my philanthropy towards the tool industry…
