You know, I do woodworking because 1. I have the time and 2. I enjoy it 3. I like giving away the things I make since I don’t need 10 cutting boards and want everyone to be different. But you must have a life time of hours getting one of the unbelievaible works of art together. I can’t comprehend the time you must take to make something like this. And of course you can never give it away. Nice work I seen a few and they are all works of art….

where would I get these plans? they look great in actual fact the guy who sells the plans has models which dont look anything as nice as yours so he would do well to get you to make him some to advertise with.If I saw his plans I wouldn’t buy them looking at yours they are much better.Alistair

They are all very nice. How many hours on average did it take you to make each of them?

Very good job – I had to look twice at that first one – it looks full size until you realize its on a patio table.

As always Bob…nice job on your toys. I really like the Mach truck. The gatto plan sure gets into more detail for the big rigs. I have never built any of the gatto plans. I do own a couple but they seem just a bit of a challenge to us not so good toy builders. I do believe the T&J plans are a bit easier. Keep up the posts, and the good work on your toys.

I agree with those who mistook those for the real thing in the smaller picture, I thought it was a 1/2 scale for your son to play in. I am very impressed, incredible detail and workmanship.
