Well he’s on the road now ready to get er done.
Check out the blog for a look see of it’s build.
I took the good wheels off the Linclon for the photo shot.
May end up making some real truck wheels down the road for it.
To see how the wheels were make .
Here’s what the truck would have looked like if I would have followed the plans.
T&J makes two different tanker trucks.
I used the plans for the frame and body shape but then used the looks of the newer body style to dress it up a little.
I got the plans at Grizzy tools for $4 on sale and they were very old plans but worked just fine.
Their shipping is cheaper so if your wanting to stock up on some great but simple plans check it out before their all gone.
This was made with oak and cherry and the frame was mahogany, wish I hadn’t used it but when I started wasn’t planing on it coming out like this.
The plan was to use up a bunch a wood scraps I have, a busted oak and cherry cutting board and just what was left over from my last couple a builds.
-- There's a hundred ways to do anything, alot depends on the tools at hand.
