Got the trailer done now need to find a place to put the loong thing. LOL

Here’s the blog for my 4 day project. http://lumberjocks.com/htl/blog/89290

Been wanting to build this for my excavator but now need a truck to match the trailer but it won’t be happening till it cools off I think.

New entry,
Here’s the truck I made to go with it.

Yet another great build. Like the excavator on top as well. A craftsman indeed

Great job #4, as always. The build looks complete with the “hitch hiker” and puller, they all compliment each other. Probably its a “shame” (loosely used) that you hadn’t discovered the ebonizer during the Mac build, but then again it is not the guest of honour.

Lucky you used the shrinking ray on the plans otherwise it’d be dangling way over the side of the shelf.

Chuckled when I first saw pictures 3 & 4 as it immediately reminded me of the movie “The Italian Job” with Michael Caine. Couldn’t resist the association….

I almost didn’t post it after Ryan Haasen’s beautiful build but want to get it on my posted list so here it is.

Ducky I’ll be rearranging my shelves or something but just put it there for now.

Myth Busters has a cool episode about a car hanging over a cliff and tested to see how many birds it would take to put it over the edge.

Know how you feel… after reading Ryan’s post my recent visit to my workshop was to burn down my table saw but I ran out of matches.

#4, take solace in the fact that for a bunch of oldies (speaking for myself and anyone that can relate), with failing eyes, riddled with arthritis, legs that can’t stand all day, a belly that hinders bending over and a limited lifespan to strive for perfection we don’t do too bad considering. At least chanting that mantra and a LARGE glass of vino makes me sleep better.

PS. I wasn’t having a go at your shelf, but couldn’t resist MY association with the movie’s ending.

If we can’t have some fun here where?
I had a feeling there would be feed back on the short shelf but was on to bigger and better things so, no worries?

This turned out really nicely! I read through your blog as well, I’m sure that’s going to help a lot of guys with their model making. One thing that really stands out to me is the tread on your truck tires, that looks wicked!
