With summer here it has taken me since February to complete this truck. It is a T&J plus my own ideas. The woods are a bit different to use together. Red Cedar and White Oak make up most of the build. Ash, Poplar & Walnut round out the accent pieces. I laminated woods to make the designs in the hood. That was a bit tricky to get it to line up just right. The interior is detailed down to the switches on the dash, cup holder and jump seat there is even a CB radio hanging from the roof. All the things that are suppose to move work as they should. Thanks for looking at my growing construction site. Doug

Beautifully done as always!
It brings back memories, one of my older brothers used to make us trucks and cats etc out of wood to supplement our meager collection. Not nearly as nice as yours but we sure had a lot of fun with them!

Outstanding ! Many of these models I see are OK but yours are definitely top drawer. You must be a man of considerable patience (and skill of course) !

Looks like you could jump up into the cab and deliver the next load. :-)

Beautiful job. I like the contrasting colors on the engine. Great detail, even in the cab.
