This toy truck is a gift for for some of our friend’s son who will be having his 1st birthday in July

I drew a Sketchup plan and did a blog on the construction.

This was quite a fun project.

This looks good George. Everything went well, also the wheels. When this little guy will be older he will enjoy it.

Nice to see the final product, the headlights look great and were worth the risk!

This has a great look to it. I like the simple head lights.

I make toys all the time!

I have to admire the quality and work that went into this one!

Nice design, great build,, still “highly playable” and still an excellent model too!

Don’t get me wrong, this is awsome truck, but the most beautiful are front lights made of washer and srew.
Brilliant!
