Nice project Bob. I see you have an eclectic interest in making small projects with a special
interest in vehicles which have been my interests as well. You are doing nice work.

That is ” SPECTACULAR ” Too difficult to even imagine doing something like this, a real gem of a toy truck, beautiful woods and very meticulous finishing, great job, thanks for sharing

Fantastic craftsmanship and I can’t even imagine the hours of time invested. Great idea to do 2 at once and put em together! I do have to say there’s one thing missing though…no safety chains on the trailer!!! :-)

awesome job…would love to build one of these for my yet to be born son…...but i feel i would be the only one who would be broken hearted when it gets damaged…...maybe i will just build it for myself and leave it on a shelf (a high one) to admire.

-- just get stuck in and have a go!!!
