These are models of trucks I’ve done for customers a few years back, they were made from pictures of the vehicles.

How do you do this! I invision hundreds of hours carving and sanding.
It must be possible because I see it with my own eyes.

Alain,

I love posts like this. These are really wonderful pieces that are so rich in details. I could not imagine the patience or perseverance necessary to complete something like this. I just would not have the patience to do it.
But I enjoy looking nonetheless.

Thanks for the post.

Hey Studeag ; Did you build the tankers by means of veneer over a frame? Planked like a boat? As always, your work looks great. Brian.

The tankers were built from solid wood, I have turned a cylinder, than split it in two, added a piece of wood to get the look of an oval with a flat portion on the top for the rail and at the bottom for the frame of the tanker.

That is so amazing. I love your work. I think if I ever get this fire truck finished that will be next challenge. Everything looks so polished and exact. The lines are trim and the curves don’t vary. I am in awe.

I want to try to find some pics of a large truck so I can get some details for my plan. Any truckers out there with a kenworth, let me know if you have pic you can send me.

G’Day Alain,
That’s on beaut “B Double” Road Tanker as we call them “down under”.
You do, do some very nice work with great finish & detail..
I’d love to see a WIP photo set with build notes from yourself; a lesson in toymaking/model making not to miss.
Cheers, crowie
