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.

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!

You may need htl’s magical SS or Dutchy’s disc sander with at least 30 grit sandpaper!!!

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.
