This is my 51 Ford Pickup that I built a couple of years ago. It is built mainly with Kauri. I hadn’t learnt about ebonizing at the time so the tires are just natural wood.
It is another Toys & Joys plan.

I like the truck, I had one of this model, it was registered 1952 and was a mercury.

Built a few years ago? To think, it hasn’t aged a bit. Really nice detail and kept squeaky clean by those great wipers.

Peter, I love ford trucks from the 50’s. This is a very nice miniature and done so nicely.

I wish I could make wooden toys like that for my Grandson. Since I can not afford much maybe I can learn how to make them.

If it was painted red I would believe it was a model of my old PU

I have a 1952 F-1 sitting in the yard. Yours looks a lot better!

Great detail!

Great looking model. All of the models you’ve made are first rate, but my favorite for sentimental reasons is the 48 Ford woody.

Great job. I love that. One on my list to try, but, at the rate I do it it may never get done. I just started the T&J ‘34 Chev Coupe a couple days ago. I’ve had the plans for over 2 years.

Peter, I’m working on this model, was wondering how you made the kerf around the window openings.
