Here is my first toy model project. It’s from the Norm Marshall wooden toy book. It’s made entirely from well-seasoned 2×6 wood studs. I have a huge surplus of them and I’m using them to practice as I learn to make models and toys. This one definitely has a few flaws, but I learned a lot and am tweaking my tools and refining my methods. Will be building lots more and hopefully getting better as I build each one.

Excellent work. The work doesn’t indicate that maker has had a brain injury.

G’Day “wolflrv”,
These cars are great fun build; they look simple but there is quite a bit of time & effort in making them.
My grandson told me its “Tin Lizzie” from the “Cars” movie.
What sort of things did you find in the build that will help in future builds, please.
Cheers from On Top DownUnder, crowie
