T&J’s Tank Truck. Is made of Bass wood. I like my models painted. The tank was shaped on belt sander & router. I believe their plans are a joy. Do a little add on’s to make it yours.
Check out my Light Box post. It is used to make, change or join papers together. My printer only does 8.5×11 paper. I don’t cut my plans. I copy on printer. To get like the frame. Need to join two papers together. The LB has a light inside it, that shines through the glass. Because of the light you can see lines on both papers to line up.

Live the look of the double front bumper.

Great job Bruce. I personally prefer not to paint my models, however, you certainly have personalised and given it character with your choice of paints.

I hate painting, that’s why I never paint my toe-nails (nothing to do with not being able to reach them… I don’t paint my fingernails either).

I thank each of you, for your kind comments.
Ducky, think you crossed over into TMI, with toe-nails. Using photo shop to get that picture out of my mind. LOL

That’s a great looking tank truck! You’ve really got a lot of detail in it, which adds to the look of it. I always enjoy seeing these old cars and trucks brought to life—thanks for posting!

I noticed your truck the other day but didn’t get a chance to comment on it as I love making toys also. My internet had been down and I just can’t get caught up with the regulars on my list. You may have checked out the toys I have done. You can easily make your own by following the simple method I use. The 1937 Wolsley that I did recently has a brief description of the steps to make your own from a picture. I use a 8 1/2 by 11 copier too.
Nice job on the truck. Thanks for choosing me as a buddy, I do most every thing in wood and metal field. No toys till winter season.
