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.

-- Brian, Ontario Canada,

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

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

Yea, I like it too! I can see some similarities with the 1939 truck that I built earlier…I may put that project on my list for the fall….good job!
