I built this out of some old pine shelving with cherry accents.
The wheels are 3” tall but if I had made it to the plans they should have been 4 1/4 that would have made this one big truck.
Here’s a Hummer tire which is 1/4” smaller than the plans for the dump truck.
This is a fun straight forward build without to many tricky thing to build so would be a great starter model.
As with most of these models the making of the wheels is nearly half the project in my opinion.
Here is a short blog of this build.
