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!!!

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #1: The Chassis

03-25-2019 12:09 AM by Jason1974 | 18 comments »

Gents, so I decided to start another project. I had a huge chuck of cherry on my wood carts so I decided to mill it down and make something with it. Haven’t decided what other woods to use but I think I’m going to make the wheels out of walnut for the tyres and maple for the rims. I also have a small chunk of bloodwood I would like to incorporate into the build. Maybe I’ll use it for the seats. ............. Thanks for watching!!!.

Toy Construction #247: 1932 Buick Sedan #3

03-14-2019 10:32 PM by htl | 10 comments »

Got a little more done. Shaping the roof.I super glue a square chunk a scrap to the bottom and this keeps everything squared up to sand to the mark. When done just hit it with something and it’s done. I was going to use walnut but had this wild looking block a oak. As always have to see what it will look like with some wheels but was happy to find I already have some tires made up, just need to build the spoke rims.

Willy’s jeep #1: Axe and shovel

02-24-2019 08:26 AM by FrenchGoattoys | 3 comments »

I have decided to build a WWII Jeep. Oddly enough, I, uncharacteristically for most, started with accessories, to wit: the shovel and the axe. I like to mix mediums in my projects. Ergo, instead of wood, I forged the shovel spade, handle, and axe blade from tin. I used solder to fill in the gaps of the folded tin, which also allowed for additional shaping. After cutting out the general shape, I shaped most of the items with a file. On the folded axe blade I was able to use a grinder to ...

FOUND IT! (Anyone remember a miniature bench plane for executives?)

12-31-2018 02:40 AM by Dave Rutan | 20 comments »

[See my comment below] A long tme ago, like maybe in the 1980’s or 90’s, I remember seeing a miniature bench plane and work bench for executives. The idea was that you could plane a miniature piece of wood on your desk to relieve stress, much like a mini zen garden. I think it was offered by a catalog like The Sharper Image or Brookstone, but I can find nothing about it on the internet. I’m just curious about it and would like to see the add for it. Knowing what I ...

Toy Construction #242: Chevy Corvette 1953 Making what's wrong right

11-08-2018 10:33 PM by htl | 12 comments »

I guess I’m not much of a modern car builder, give me square parts and all is well. lol Here’s the bad part and then the fix. There’s a lot a work that went on between these two pictures. Now we got her back to right.I know this isn’t true Vette styling but it is what it is.I am having a hard time coming up with a seat that works so will be playing with the wheels and sleep on the seat thing.

Model build #1 : The Exhaust Heat Shield

10-26-2018 11:55 AM by Jason1974 | 6 comments »

This is my first blog entry so I will do my best to explain how I made the heat shield. It’s pretty simple....First I used a dowel (5/8”) that was big enough to slide the exhaust into with at least 1/8” wall thickness left. Then I used a ruler and spaced out where I wanted to drill the holes. I spaced mine out with a measurement of 1/4” spacing and I staggered each row....Here I placed the dowel in a vise and made sure it wouldn’t slip during drilling. Using a...

Got it in my head the the Reading train needs some cars so ordered the Gatto plans that match up with the train.This will be my third caboose but all are completely different.It also come with a Hopper car which will be a new type car for me, it also comes with a passenger car but it’s I can’t remember but it’s way long so may build a cattle car instead down the road. {I love to build cattle cars. LOL}The project page for the Caboose is here. I forgot to bring the came...
