This truck is from a 1995 Wood mag. I added a few touches of my own the upper part of the bumper, added twin stacks, a tailgate to the bed, and a short dowl to hold the bed up. The body of the truck is walnut, the bed is white oak, and I turned the fuel tanks from some scrap red oak.
Thanks for looking Kevin

Fantastic, my boy would get such a kick out of one…maybe more than I do.

Very nice truck! I’m curious, how does the bed attach to the truck?

Great looking truck. The preview photo made me do a double take as it looked kinda real.

Good job keep it up, I like the truck models, keeps the hands busy when other projects are less important.
