The latest piece finished an American Fire Truck from Toys and Joys plans measures 31” X 7” X 7 1/2” and with the ladder extended in the raised position 36” tall. Main woods Sapele and Beech with others thrown in for good measure. I don’t believe in buying wheels and other pieces if I can turn my hand at making them much more pleasure that way.
