As promised, someone asked to see my first attempt at model building. This was a learning curve for me in wood working. Loved every minute of it. Also various hard woods used with the main parts cut from an old cheese board.

Another nice truck this can become very addictive making models and toys and a very good way to use some of the little scraps of wood from other projects

Far from shabby for your 1st venture Dykie! Well done.

However, that hairy tussock in the background of pickie #3 could have used a serving or two of tung oil.

Thanks guys, much appreciated. By the way, for the windscreens I simply used some of my old photographic slides, the protective glass is very thin. A slitting saw did the grooves.

I can see why you “loved every minute of it”

I would have to give you a A++ for effort!!

On a safety point keep it away from little fingers or swap the glass out for perspex.

Oh dont forget to thank Thing for helping you with the photo staging.
