My 6 year old grandson has been spending his Spring Break with us. We have been working on this ALex Fox pattern of the Humvee. I stacked cut two, this one I will keep, the second one will go home with him for him and his dad to put together. We had a great time with it. It took me two days to cut all the parts out. Putting it together was easy, just following Alex’s video. Thanks Alex for the nice free pattern.

Congratulations – two days cutting for a lifetime memory. Toys that don’t need batteries, but run on imagination are the best. Nice model of lifestyle and a Humvee – thanks for sharing!

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
