Hot Rod FORDS #14: The Lockdown continues BUT Christmas isn’t too far away so it’s Fund Raising gift donations time.

The Lockdown continues BUT Christmas isn’t too far away so it’s Fund Raising gift donations time. My wife suggested a couple of Matchbox Toy Car Garages I’ve made about 30 of these over the years developing my own plan, so I’m happy to share it anyone who’d like to build one or a few. The livery I’ve chosen is an old icon Aussie Service Station of days gone by; Golden Fleece. The Golden Fleece decals are just paper print outs off the internet. Most children seem to like the mov...

Craft Fairs and Farmers Markets #1: Dinosaurs are the best!

08-09-2021 10:07 AM by Karen Teeley | 0 comments »

I participate in local Farmers Markets to sell my children’s toys. My very first experience in 2017 was not a good one so it was a fluke in 2019 that I tried again. As it turns out, I’m glad I did because I love the interaction with the local customers and love to update and modify my designs based on feedback. I focus on the 18 month-12 y.o. age group and find that kids, parents and grandparents are all interested in my products. I try to keep my product lines simple, but as it i...

Hot Rod FORDS #13: Hot Rod Ford Truck.

08-08-2021 04:47 AM by crowie | 40 comments »

Hot Rod Ford Truck. Well we have started week 7 of the “Stay at Home” lockdown isolation with at least another 3 weeks to go according to current advise. So in order to keep sane I thought I’d start a new toy build. So far the T-Bucket/C Cab is shaped out along with the engine & radiator. The wheels and front mudguards/fenders have been started. The chassis rails will be about 18” or 450mm. It’s all about making it up as I go.

Peter Bilt Trucks #2: And on to the next part of this make it as I go build!

08-08-2020 06:53 AM by crowie | 6 comments »

And on to the next part of this make it as I go build! The rear axle can be screwed in place as the box will cover the screws. Two tone on the fuel takes make it look like straps. Double check the fitment of the lid. A couple of exhaust stacks. Fitting and strengthening the cabin roof with a couple of axle pegs through the “A” pillows.Air horns on the roof too….just shortened golf tees.. A rear bumper bar with taillights and an a...

Peter Bilt Trucks #1: One mean looking PanTech is started!

08-07-2020 06:16 AM by crowie | 4 comments »

One mean looking PanTech is started! I firstly started with a engine and cabin on a chassis… It looks okay well a good start! Take the roof off to reveal the insides! And it even has a gearshift and a steering wheel for Aussie roads. Now to cut out and glue up the back…. Used most of my clamps to get that done! WOW! It looks big! And the back doors worked out well… The top of the PanTech Box or lid was tricky for...

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #13: Ebonizing the tyres, first timer.

11-20-2019 08:48 AM by crowie | 14 comments »

Ebonizing the tyres, first timer. And mistakes were made, yes. You have to use Super Fine 0000 Steel Wool as the standard hardware steel wool doesn’t devolve. After watching a couple of videos I decided make a brew of strong black tea to prep the timber. I let the tyres dry then applied a coat of the white vinegar and steel wool solution.

1933 Ford Fordor Sedan #12: Trying to get the front view correct

11-10-2019 02:47 AM by crowie | 13 comments »

Trying to get the front view correct I’ve add some timber to do the inner flare on the front mudguards, then did a lot of hands free shaping. The headlights position was too high but with some more shaping I’ve managed to lower them.
