« Part 95: WS Tractor Semi #2 Part 96 of Toy Construction series Part 97: WS Tractor Semi Fenders and cab »

Finally got back to building my truck.
Using oak and walnut for this build just love the way the grain in the oak shows up in these models.
Needed to cut out the engine compartment.
Wanted it cut in one pass so it would be nise and smooth so the clamp keeps it from being able to move.

Next up was the grill and made some doors..

Then on to the dash board and finish the inside so I could close it up..
