Built from Gatto plans. I was impressed with his plans. vVery detailed. Built entirely from scrap pine, only purchased parts were dowels and toothpicks. Especially like the wheel detail that I did.

Great job!!! Gatto really puts the details in their plans but it takes a bit more work to figure them out.Sure would love some more pictures of the underneath and such.

There is a clear finish on the truck, but it appears washed out in the pictures.Thanks for the nice comments.

That is allot of detail, very very nicely done. Rare to see such detail in the undercarriage. I have done a number of models but follow a quick build methods. Especially in toys to give away. First project, obviously you have have many skills and have done many more. hope to see more projects in the near future…
