Made from a combination of maple, cherry, and black walnut and finished with tung oil. The truck has oscillating rear axles so it can traverse uneven ground, and the car body bed will slide back and down. The tire at the front of the bed acts as a winch when you turn it. Thanks for looking.

These are sooooo cool.
If you don’t mind, where do you find the plans for these scale models?

G’day “grimejr”,
Again an awesome truck, this time with tilt-tray and an oscillating rear axles.
You make a very nice toy truck, well done.
You’ve already been asked were you get your plans and I too would very much appreciate knowing your source, thank you.
I’d also like to know how you’ve done the tilt-tray part of this truck please.
Cheers, from On Top DownUnder, crowie

G’day Again “grimejr”,
I’ve been trying to work out how you do the winch for the tilt tray but for the life of me, can’t work it out, so would appreciate your insights to this mechanism please, thank you.
