I build this truck corresponding to a Scania from the sixties of the last century. At that time milk from farmer to dairy factory was transported in big cans. This cans where collected and brought to the factory every day on a small truck. I have turned a couple of this cans on my lathe and used them as load to make it look as a real dairy truck.

The different types of wood I used are mainly Meranti, Merbau, Beli, Ash, Oak (ebonized tyres) and Beech.

The truck is about 35 cm (14”) long. Tyres are 71mm (2 3/4”) in diameter.

Thanks for watching.

Very nice, everyone has said it. I grew up on a small farm, We didn’t ship the milk from about few cows, but shipped the cream in cans like those, I believe they where picked up also. No electricity for cold storage, a pit in the ground where blocks of ice where put in and the cans of cream. In the winter the blocks of ice where cut and stored in a ice house insulated and covered with sawdust. Thats the way it was done in the old days. As a kid we would chip off some ice in the summertime for a cool treat. early 50’s

Beautifully done Jan. We had quite a few of those Scania trucks around when I first arrived in Norway in 1971 although I don’t think they were being used as milk transport at that time. I do remember the milk canisters being set out on a platform for dairy pickup at the end of the driveway to my grandparents farm where I lived during WWII.

Very well done and I enjoyed the history. Things have certainly changed in the dairy business.
