Just finished the Toys and Joys Flatbed Trailer. Loaded it up with scraps cut to resemble pallets of hardwood and framing stock. As always all comments welcomed good or suggestions for improvement. Thanks for looking.- Sean

Superb work on the rig! Extremely realistic.

I formerly worked in a lumber yard and used to unload them with a fork -lift!

^That is awesome.
Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Fantastic. I did a double-take at first. So very realistic.

SouthavenToyMaker You done me in with your photo!!! lol
I keep coming back and looking for new model builds and all day I’ve seen this load a lumber and thinking to myself why is anyone showing pictures of your load a lumber. LOL
I finally took a better look and realized it’s your newest model, way cool presentation with the lumber on the back.
Looking great!!!

At first I thought you received a load of lumber to make toys and were showing off all the new wood, second thought, this guys got a great looking parking lot, then I looked closer and I realized its a model! Fantastic! very well done!!

A flat bed trailer is just a flat bed trailer, but with the planks you put it on a higher level.

Well done.

Great detail. The palettes had me going before I zoomed in. I thought you were bragging about purchasing (and receiving) bulk lumber cheap…
