I found a plan in a french magazine called “Le Bouvet” (october 1987 or so…). This plan was given by a reader, called Papy Jean, who had made this truck several times.
I really enjoyed doing two of these trucks for my 2yo twins two years ago.
I am currently doing three of them for my nephews.

so if this truck is French it’s right hand drive right ? ................I’ve always admired people who could build stuff like this I always manage to find something else to do…...................Schloemoe
