Hi Jocks,

Each year I make toys for the Salvation Army Christmas. I have been making airplanes and boats and cars. This is my prototype for this years contributions. Made from scrap poplar mahogany and purpleheart. I wish to thank Jolien Brebels (on YOUTUBE) for her locomotive design. thanks for looking.

Very cute. Love the fact you’re donating this to a Salvation Army program too. They do a LOT of good things…

Great job… It’s nice to see people give up their time for unknown ankle-bitter. People like you are unheralded heroes…
