This is an actual toy, :) made as a gift for a coworkers son’s 6th Birthday. Design is from Tremendous Toy Trucks book. I changed it some, my experience with the toy is the brush guard tends to break, so I do not use. I also beef up the axles and screw them to the frame. Having two sons helps with product testing. The body of the truck is Hickory (tough on BS Blades) Fenders are cherry and Walnut for the frame and wheels. Thanks for looking.

That’s pretty cool. I guess it has a big block under the hood.
