Toy Construction #265: 32 Hot Rod Chevy Coupe Fenders & radiator installed

08-09-2019 07:59 PM by htl | 7 comments »

This fir sure make sanding quick but the dings it gets are a pain! Going to have some really wide tires on the back so needed to cut some more out.These quality hole saws make quick,clean work of it with very little sanding a big plus in my book.. Then need to figure how the radiator will fit in, really took my time with this as any part of it buggered up would mean tons a redoes. :-[ It’s coming together now. #4 over and out.

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.....

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 #254: Mining Truck 1&2

05-04-2019 08:36 PM by htl | 7 comments »

Playing with another Mining Truck as I already had some wheels ready from the last time I built one.This time will use walnut and maple as this is what’s scraps are in the shop.The wheels are 3” so are 1 1/4” smaller than the plans call for, because of this I shrunk the plans down to work.I just don’t need a model with 4 1/4” wheels way to big, I built the hummer and man is it a big monster of a model.Here’s what the wheels would have looked like. Ta...

Needed to get out of the house so grabbed my folders of plans and hit the shop.I usually pick a plan and print out the parts I need.Not up to any thing complicated so found the old tanker truck plans that I have built before.One of Toys and Joys older very simple plans.Here’s what I made with the plans last time. As much as I like making cattle cars for my trains may try adding a cattle mover rear end. />Here’s what I have in mind. Here’s what I got done today. Fra...

Tractor Trailer Wheels #1: Wheel Jig

12-14-2018 11:38 PM by SouthavenToyMaker | 5 comments »

I know that there are several blogs already available on how to make wheels for the toy/model trucks, but I have been asked several times on how I make mine. So, I decided to create a blog series on how I currently make them. Lets start with the jig / fixture for cutting the grooves in the drive tires. Materials used 1/2 board 16” long 4” high for the miter gauge, 1/2” stock for the indexer, 5/16 carriage bolt and nut, two 608z bearings, two tee nuts and matching bo...
