This project is fairly easy. Only parts not handmade are the wheels and dowels.

It’s great. I love the detail. Takes me back to when I rode one to anf from school and to and from track meets. Ah, memories.

You call that easy? Nice job, and you’d be hard pressed not to find someone with some nostalgic memory of riding on one of those.

Superb job… lots of memories for everyone….

Maybe they are out for the summer…I teach and we go back Friday. Students come back the 24th…and the heat here has been unbearable. Well over the record for 100 degree days in the summer, and the hottest part just starting.

BTW: great school bus.

Boy I’m glad that it’s easy. We make toys for children for Christmas. We usually make 1300 toys or so. about 100 of 13 different types.

I can appreciate the work.
