That looks great. I have a friend that has built several pieces of construction equipment from Joys and Toys. He is currently working on a steam engine. I hope to one day get to where I can build things like you guys are building.

I made a bi-plane for my nephew for xmas, but after seeing this beautiful truck you created, I think it’s time for another toy for him…. a truck of course. Beautiful toy!
