« Part 8: Frame continuation Part 9 of The dump truck series Part 10: Grill »

Sometimes it may look that I’m working on one piece of the the truck. But factual mostly I’m working on more parts at the same time. And this means that I made the seats at the time the glue of the engine was drying.

It’s called “Multi-tasking” Dutchy… and you seem to be a wiz at it ! :-)

Looking good!
I don’t know what it is but I really like working in the cab, the seats and leavers.
And like you there’s always more than one thing going on at any time in the build.
I think that’s half the fun as JoeinGa said Multi-tasking, it can get quite interesting trying to keep it all straight.
Does your truck also have you building an engine now that’s cool.
Hope you’ll give us a look at that.

AS realistic as that is going to be; we will expect it to run!

NICE! BUT—too much work; will be a display model, not a playable toy!

I can see it setting at a dealers in a showcase!

Dutchy that’s a shame I was hoping for carburetors,air filters,spark plugs,and,and.
That comes with the $75 plans. lol
I was looking at one of the cheaper or older T&J truck plans and they don’t have the leaf springs or motor block a much simpler build but still nice I should add.

Bruce I made the logging truck. And with a littel brainwork you could use this plan also for your drilling station.
