Here are a few photos of my just finished latest project
I used T&J plan.

I now need to make up the mind what to try next I have now built a model from each of the plan sets I purchased

I would like to do a tow truck or fire truck but I want to make much more finer detail than the older T&J plans
I am unsure about doing one from scratch ( no plans )
and its not worth buying plans if I am not going to follow them fairly closely , having said that I make some minor changes or personal touches on what I make.
I would also like to know if something I like is in their 2017 plans release
If anyone knows where I can get finely detailed tow or fire truck plan please let me know ; something similar to the last few years releases from T&J

Great job there Garry. At first glance I thought you had a timber driveway. Nice use of contrasting timber.

If you are into SketchUp, I have imported the fire truck into it. I have deliberately not included the plans in the model, however, it could give you the opportunity to customise much easier.

Nice colors, as for no plans, go for it. I did and never looked back. T&J is a good way to start.
