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.

Wooden Models #296: "THE UNIMOG"

I have been looking for a project to build and saw that Toys and Joys have come out with some new plans, and the 146 – “THE UNIMOG” got my attention.So before biting the bullet and sending for the plans I went walk about seeing what ideas I could add to it, as you all know I can’t stay to close to the plans for some reason.Well searching for Unimogs I found one that really got my attention, now wouldn’t that be fun to go mudding in?And as you can tell, it’s...

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...

Wooden Models #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...

Wooden Models #245: Ford pickup 1955 Made some wheels

01-06-2019 12:29 AM by htl | 9 comments »

Made a set a wheels for the Ford.Still a lot a clean up but you get the idea.Don’t know about the rims, I drilled the holes a little to close to the centers, so may need to try again. Funny to me the grill looks up side down but that’s the way their designed. May try again something like this front rim. Here’s how the wheels turned out. Project post is here.

If I add front wheel drive does that make this a 6 wheeler or a ten? The drive shaft follows the Differential on both the front and back. As I said just about there. Here's the finished project.

Wooden Models #184: Nailing things down and front suspension

02-15-2018 12:06 AM by htl | 6 comments »

I’ve been calling it a Mack but it looks a lot more like a Kenworth T880 Dump Truck to me so far. Here’s some better pictures of how I did the front suspension.I will be adding a wood spacer on top of the spring to keep it in place.But once the wheels are in place there shouldn’t be much side ways movement. Then screwed down the dump box frame and the cab. Then I used some dowels to hold the wheel wells in place till I was sure it would all work out.Got ...

Took longer to get the dump box under control than I would have figured.. There’s just something about the shape of this dump box, love the look of it and have wanted to build it for a long time.
