My newest completed project. Made mainly from white oak and walnut. As always i changed some things up to make it my own. This is this first toy that I used any finish. I think I like the way it turned out, and may be spraying some of my other projects..

” Great looking model. Well done.” quoting Bruce.

I do have to agree 100%.

Making things like these is a lot more complicated than it first appears to be.

I concur with ralbuck. I’m in awe of you guys that make all these models out of WOOD. I can’t fathom how much work goes into it. I was just looking at ONE detail – the hydraulic rams… I’m sure those things have to be hard to get just right!
