Made this fire engine from plans in the “Making Heirloom Toys” book. I have changed a few things. I added two extra firemen and gave them hats, made an axe and also a few other bits. The main chassis and the main light wood for the superstructure is Tulip wood all the other wood came from my scrap bin.

I have tried to keep it as simple as possible but with enough detail to look like an engine, after all it is a toy and not a scale model. The only thing that was brought was the dowel material for the ladder rungs, Everything else is made from the scrap bin

Don’t let the kids get near it, they will wreck it LOL.
All joking aside, it’s too nice to play with!
