I’d say you have created a masterpiece! The wood choice is excellent and attention to details is impressive! It could go
along forever!

Cool looking truck AceDuck. Some nice details on it. All you need is shooting water and it’s fully functional.

I confess I did have plans when I built the fire truck but I don’t remember where I got them. The most likely places are Wood, American Woodworker or Woodsmith magazines but I can’t say for sure. I built it awhile ago. The length is approximately 14” and the width at the widest point (the most lateral edges of the fenders) is 4 3/4”. I know that I did not make the wheels they were bought online, I don’t remember the vendor but they should not be hard to find. I sorry I was not able to tell you more and thank you for the compliment!

Peace,

Nice looking toy, haven’t seen any fire trucks on the site before. I like making toys, grand kids, it gives me another idea.
