This is a 28 Chevy Pick-up built from the Toys & Joys plan. Woods used in construction: Frame is roasted maple. Fenders are walnut. Body is cherry. Bed in truck oak. Finish is rattle can varethane.
This was a fun project to build. This model will be donated to the club I belong to and use in their upcoming car show in August. Should make a nice door prize.

It’s a beauty. I like the door hinge detail. That’s a door prize I would love to win.

beautiful work. The dark frame and fenders look great against the lighter coloured body.

G’Day Brian,
That’s one very nice “ute” as we’d say in Australia.
Good mix of timbers with the colours highlighting the detail of the build, well done.
cheers from On Top DownUnder, crowie
