I worked on a 30’s Wolseley car this week and did this truck to give away to a needy family. Helps sometimes to have two projects going so one has a diversion between glue ups etc. The car will have to wait a few days to post as I want to post a blog on the construction process as requested by a LJ. Looks good though!!!!!
This project quite simple, fast and easy to build, with my home made wheels. Sorry the pictures are not that great.

Comments welcome, and anything else you have to say. Been well above freezing the last few days here.

The Pattern Hawaiilad and any one else. inspiration came from the book TRENDOUS TOY TRUCKS by Les Neufelt. A great book with detailed instructions and pictures. Only trouble is some of his dimensions are too accurate, no need for 1/32 measurements in wood. Shape is only important. Build and modify, look at images on computer. This truck was based on his dump truck, the wheel base on the logging truck is to short

Great job Brian, that looks quite real.
Congratulations on your No. 1.
Thanks for sharing this.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

That is a work of art and giving it away to someone in need really shows the size of your heart. It’s funny you mention measurements of 1/32” when me and my father where studding the walls in my basement I would throw him measurements down to the 1/64” just to be silly and get under his skin.
