This time I made a serie of four from the T and J chevrolet truck. It was Dee1 who sent me the plan for this little car. Till now I have made 6 of them. It’s clear that I like to make this model.

I used Oak (tyres), Beli (chairs and front), Ash (load bin), Meranti (mudgards and bottom), Wenge (door handles), Beech (dowels), Cherry (engine hood and cabin) and Pacific teak (bumper)

Below some more pictures.

Thanks for watching. All comments appreciated.

Nice job Dutchy, I stutter with my mouth… not my hands.

Reminds me of 4 ducks in a row without feathers.

You can’t fool me. The top picture has a small ”1” and some writing while the second has a larger ”2”.

If I’m wrong, steer me in the right direction.

Very nice as usual Dutchy. The trim and hinges in 2 are a better looking arrangement.

Fabulous work! And Yup what everyone above said. But I may have found one more that you didn’t even notice.
LittleBlackDuck Good catch on the 1 and 2

I think toyguy nailed it. The answer hinges on the question.

Also noticed some of the clamps are back the front, the pencil was blunt and one of the lazy buggers rolled over and went to sleep.

Bet you never realised you made sooo many mistakes Dutchy... relegated from Superman to Boy Wonder

You should take a straw poll on which hinge set looks better. With me the jury’s still out… though I’m hinging towards the symmetry of #1.

Very nice. A veritable kids playground. I looked closely at the side view comparisons and besides grain in the wood didn’t see what must be obvious. Now on the front look where you ask the question “find the differences” the car on the right has no tread on the tires, and the one on the left does.

Awesome work, thanks for posting.

One of the cars has the crossbar across the front while the others don’t.
