I made this truck using plans from one of Richard Blizzard’s toy books. It measures 26”L x 10.25”W x 14” T. I designed the wheels, tires, engine, trans, drivetrain, fuel tanks, exhaust system, and bull bar.

Thank you! I’m currently bogged down in the endless process of running drywall screws in my new shop, and this is a great reminder of why I’m doing this, because once I get it done I aspire to make things even half this cool.

Well done!

Beautiful work, wonderful detail….but why is the steering wheel on the right side? Foreign model, I guess. I gotta make my grandson one of these.

jbschutz, This is a European truck. The author of the book is from the UK. These trucks are made in Sweden I believe.

looking realy good …. reminds me of the Scania´s I drove Europe thinn in
you just have to make the sleighhole for the kingsboltscrew
and add the closets with the fridge and stoveroom on the leftside
and make a fullsize fuel tank on the right side after moving the sparetire
to the back of the house ….... then you pretty much have a Euro truck :-)

thank´s for sharing this buty

G’day Bret, It’s really good to see how excellent this truck build was again.
All the extra parts personalizing the truck to look like the real deal, so much time & effort brought a reward.
A masterpiece indeed, top marks and first prize in any show.
Cheers from On Top DownUnder, crowie

PS – Love the right hand drive, straight off the English plans book…...Looks Aussie!!!!

-- Lifes good, Enjoy each new day...... Cheers from "On Top DownUnder" Crowie
