More of my Wooden Toy collection after painting. Part of my inspiration came from my Father. My Father was a heavy equipment operator and I built the Crane for him and then went from there. He was also a bit of a gear head, always tinkering with old cars & trucks.
I never had a real interest in automotive equipment but had to start somewhere with my interest in woodworking. I won’t bore everyone with the finish of all the other items – just wanted to show what a little paint & decals will do to the finished projects.

Cars are so beautiful with all those details and colours. You realy made them look authentic. I like the way you coloured bulldozer and truck. They look so fun.
