« Part 128: Delivery truck working on the deck Part 129 of Toy Construction series Part 130: Playing with a Caterpillar »

Well it’s starting to come together and look like something.
Got the runners, hydraulics,gas tank,tool box and axles all put into place.
Quite a few pictures trying to help you get a picture of what was done.This is a oak and walnut project.
For those of you just checking it out this is a Toys And Joys plan with a few small changes and then a scratch built hauler bed for my Sprint car.
Sorry for the bad pictures.


The hydraulic are from a left over one from another build the same with the bracket.
As much trouble as it is to make hydraulics at least for me it pays to make extra parts since the tools are already set up so why not make extras.

Hey #4, You may loose your crown for wheel making and replaced by tray making. That’s one helluva great design and addition to the “ice-creamer”.

We have people like that in my neighbourhood,

steal your wheels and leave the car on blocks.

I like the hydraulic cylinder. Having used many; I have to compliment the accuracy!

Great looking model. Are you going to ad the winch on the front of the bed?

“We have people like that in my neighbourhood,”

I’m thinking what is he talking about this time,I was about ready to call the translator then I saw,

“steal your wheels and leave the car on blocks.”
So!! Funny!!!
ralbuck I’m thinking about it, yes I am.
I want to get everything else done first cause cold weather is just about here so won’t be getting in the shop for a couple a days at least.

ralbuck don’t tell anyone but I think I should a lowered the main hydraulic bracket a little for better leverage but it’s there now so happy happy.

Thanks Bruce#3 I’m really happy the way it came out of no where and will fit in with my other models just right.

Uhmmmm, remember, this is the guy who has a hard time finishing the “finishing details”. Once the basic vehicle is done, it’s likely he’ll move on to something ELSE, and we’ll never see that winch !

Oh, but nice job on the truck Brucie – Boy !

Wow Joe you really made my day!!!
I limped out into the shop about 11am was the soonest I could manage and got to work, putting in head lights and turn signals added some rear mud flaps.
Fixed the tires where my wife got in the shop and spray painted something with gold paint and got it on the tires.
Then took it all apart for one last sanding and put the finish on it, and really all happy about the way it turned out and limped in to my computer room to show it to you all, but it’s not done I read needs mirrors And and and.

So lets just put it on the shelf with the sprint car that’s not finished and look at it and be happy for a project I really enjoyed building for the build not for any thing else, just the joy of figuring some thing out and being able to show some others of like mind and a love of wood working.

For me it’s finished, as far as I want to take it and I’m happy with that so be happy for me and let it go!!!..

Hey #4, I understand. Less surface area for the dust to settle on.

Great result… well done!
