After spending too much time on getting all the pieces designed, I finally have been able to finish a 23” model of the Oshkosh R-11. It still needs a few tweaks but I am pretty happy with how it came out. Everything is as close to scale as I can get it so far. I have spent close to 50 hours drawing up all the design files. It has definitely been a good learning experience!

I seem to thrive on minor/small details. The more detail I can get, the happier I am. I had someone ask me to put together a truck for a going away. I expected it to be a weekend project but it turned into a few week long project and that was before I even started the design for this one. =)

What a great project. Wish I could get some larger photos of this. Our son lives in Oskosh and works for Oshkosh Military as an engineer. He works on many of their larger truck designs.
Thanks for posting this. I am going to try to remember this and show it to him next time he comes here to Michigan.
