« Part 178: Building a VW Bus #8 Just a few things left to do Part 179 of Toy Construction series Part 180: Building the dump box »

Going to be using the plans for the Power Wagon [Mack] body and the bump box off one of Toys & Joys other trucks to make a mostly scratch built dump truck or maybe a wrecker, we’ll see where the wood wants to go when I get that far.
Here’s what got done today.

I needed to build the body first because I extended the cab and didn’t want to make the frame till I could see what was going to happen.

The reason for the truck is to find a place for those wheels I made a while back.

Damn #4... You churn out the vehicles faster than General Motors, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler (FCA US) combined.

Ever heard of those gimmicky things called brakes… Stewpud me… if you don’t like mirrors… why should you consider braking... other than my chops and making me read more…
Did you sign up with the Blues Brothers… ”on a mission”?
