I stumbled accross this site. This fellow is amazing, taking Toys ‘N Joys plans and scaling them up at least 4 times. His work is amazing…I can’t wait to finish my B36 Bomber and try scaling up Toys ‘N Joys Bobcat…Check out the site, it inspired me…

As you all know I am also a Toys and Joys fan…......... But this is just amazing. Talk about cool… But what to do with them? I have a set of the Hummer plans that I have never built just because it’s so large. Now multiply by 4….. That’s just sick, So sick I can’t wait to have a look at some of my plans and start some calculations…....

Thanks ever so much for this link…... You would have thought ? ..... Thanks again.
