A couple of years ago, I built a toy truck for use as a prize in a car show I am involved with. Then last year, and again this year I have been asked to build another. Never wanting to duplicate any of these, this year I choice the pick-me-up from Toys and Joys plans. Built of Poplar, Walnut Birch and some roasted Maple. Finish is rattle can Varathane. The truck is 18 ” long, bumper to bumper, 6 ” wide and 6 1/2 ” tall. So scale should be about 1” = 12” or 1/12 scale.

Great build. That’ll sure be a lucky prize winner.

To answer the question of scale: The truck is 18 ” long, bumper to bumper, 6 ” wide and 6 1/2 ” tall. So scale should be about 1” = 12” or 1/12 scale.
