Toy Construction #268: Scratch build Steam Train wheels

08-27-2019 07:23 PM by htl | 8 comments »

Got a little more done. Found out my tread making jig also does a pretty good job at making spoke wheels, sure saves a lot a time I would have to be drawing all the points needed to drill. Just add a blank and drill, once the jig is centered to the bit. The indexer is set up for cutting 36 treads but as you can see I have it marked for every other hole or as I did this time every third hole. As you can see the backer plate gets pretty chewed up when making the different sizes...

Toy Construction #263: 32 Hot Rod Chevy Coupe

08-06-2019 10:49 PM by htl | 9 comments »

I keep giving away my hot rods so lets try it one more time.I hid the big motor on the last one so thought I would leave the hood off this time to let it be seen, will also be putting the fenders on it, adds a ton a work but really makes for one sweet looking ride. Lowered the roof about a half inch and lowered the body to where the frame is covered, there’s a name for it but ain’t coming to me right now. +++ Up Date+++cutting body = chop,lowering over chassis = channeling.....

Willy’s jeep #8: Ta-da. I don’t know what else I can do. Je suis complète

08-04-2019 10:40 PM by FrenchGoattoys | 1 comment »

So, finally, I am done. I had several goals in mind when I started this project. The first was to build a Jeep and give it color and parts that provided a worn look. Second, was to interject different mediums to add a hint of detail without losing the overall wood appearance. I am certain there are pure of heart wood modelers who are cringing at the sight and cursing my name. But what the heck, I haven’t been much for boxes; they clutter my shop. Third, I wanted to make some functional parts...

Toy Construction #260: 32 Ford working on the radiator

07-20-2019 09:47 PM by htl | 8 comments »

It’s coming together. I always love playing with the radiator or grill.I made sure I built it and glued it to the bonnet before I glued the hood to the frame as last time I forgot and made my work a lot harder. It’s so much easier to sand the grill and hood as one part with out the frame and other parts in the way. Here you can see the plywood heart of the hood. Then glue it all up and sand every thing flush. The oak has some nice grain to it but had to work around a l...

Toy Construction #259: Getting started on an old car

07-16-2019 08:33 PM by htl | 6 comments »

I build this Toys and Joys car [1932 Ford] way back but used pine and just was never happy with the way it came out so lets try it again with some oak.This is a very simple [old] plan so doesn’t come with many details. Cut out the sides and frame then sand sand sand!!! Glue up for the hood, I don’t have much of this really figured oak so will be facing some plywood to get it done. Here I’m taking off the masking tape and pattern for the frame really makes clean ...

Toy Construction #256: Reading Passenger Car Gatto Plan

05-27-2019 07:16 PM by htl | 18 comments »

Got started on the Gatto passenger car that should fill out that train set.I built the Reading train a while back and then bought the Gatto plan set that goes along with it for the cars.This is Plan#29I almost didn’t build it because it’s so long and with the other cars and Train will really be a long one for sure.As you can see in the picture I clamped down a board to the edge of the table so as I glued up the sides I could add some pressure as the super glue kicked in.Not shown ...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #6: Details And Bringing It Together!

04-16-2019 06:01 PM by Jason1974 | 12 comments »

This is my favorite part of the build! The Details… I have been thinking about how I wanted to do the detail on the dash. I think I did a pretty good job. It’s amazing to much things slow down when you are getting to the end of the build. It’s also the scariest hoping everything fits together and looks good. ....................................Thanks For Watching!!!
