Norm Marshall Style Truck with a Crowie Difference..
I saw a photo of a Norm Marshall Truck that was very unique so I thought I’d have a go to do similar in my own style.
More like a Aussie 12ton TableTop with gates.
I’ve used the basics of the Norm Marshall Tractor Truck pattern.
I laminated some offcuts of Cypress Pine flooring for the cabin.
The engine block is laminated Merbau.
The tray is Tassie Oak.
The mudguards & tray sideboard are Australia Cedar.
I had to add the “BullBar” or “RooBar” after a comment I read recently on a forum.
I’ve basically used the half size the pattern which my friend Bret added on his Scania build [thanks Bret].
I’ve using store bought wheels, headlights, taillights & steering wheel.
The whole project is a bit of “MAKE IT UP AS I GO”.....Quite an enjoyable project.
The truck is 21.5” long x 5.5” wide x 6.25” high…...
Anyways, here’s what I built.
[It had a few repairs since its completion as the grandson love playing with it]
