Newest addition to the fleet. The design is by Toys & Joys and the model is approximately 19” overall length. Since Army Trucks are all one color I used Cherry for everything except the seats. I build these models usually at the same time I have other furniture projects going on. If I get frustrated with the furniture project I stop and work on my models for a while. Great stress reliever. Since I’m not sitting down and building them from start to finish it’s difficult to say how many hours I really have in it. I can tell you that they were ALL great hours spent though. Learned long ago it’s not a hobby if you are tracking hours.

Great model design! Lots of fun to build.

Thanks for looking.
Rick

Very nicely done – the detail is very impressive. The mirrors, door handles and cover hook would drive me crazy, but one day I may jump into the deep end and give it a go. Thanks for the eye candy. Certainly a great addition to your fleet.

Are those treads on the tires? Wow -

I’ve been looking at that model in their catalog. You make me know I want it. Very well done.

So clean and nice choice of wood grains. Really jumps off the page, even in the thumbnail photos.

Most excellent!
Having many-many miles of butt numbing experience in one of these I say you are spot on in this replication.
Make another, this time run the exhaust under the truck with it existing between the right side duals, that will make it a “troop carrier”, you’ll have a set then!

Great job brought back a lot of good memories!

The truck looks great. I also like your idea of building toys in parallel with other projects and using it as a bit of a stress reliever for those time you cut the mortise on the wrong side of a piece etc…
