Hi all
Second post first I put in coffee section , not sure my efforts were good enough for Project page?
was told to move them here. I have built a few of the toys and joys plans toys and the excavator is the latest.
Now working on the lattice crane and dealing with the tracks. not sure how to glue the 1/8 by 1/2 little pieces for track guides without getting glue stains everywhere?
Thanks for letting me post.

Wonderful. Nice work. By very small parts I first make bigger parts and than sawing or sanding it smaller. If you like you can look at my Jeep, also from T and J.

G’Day Dee,
My goodness me, you nearly have the whole construction crew there.
Beautiful work on them all.
They really deserved a post for each individually with a 1/2 dozen photos to show off how good they are, well done…
Looking forward to seeing the crane.

Dude ! Those are very cool !!!

Seems to me the lattice boom would be more trouble than the tracks… which you seem to have a firm grip on ;-)

The lattice crane will definitely be a project…yes? cant wait…

Thanks so much for the nice comments, I do enjoy doing these. I also have a antique John Deere hobby.
So some of the time my shop is full of iron and grease, but as I get older I seem to like the wood tractors more and more.
Thanks again

Have your say...
