this was a plan from Lloyds wood plans in my honest opinion these plans are not for me these plans have you laying out 1/2” thick pieces then gluing them together what a waste of wood …. so I just figured out the size I needed and cut them as full blocks very frustrating if I did it again I would have changed the scale as I just think it is too big ….. 3 -1/2 ” wheels almost gave up several times on it glad its done LOL :<))

This is a very nice looking model Tony. I admired this as soon as I saw it and before i read what you said in the description and even though you think it’s too big I still like it and I think you did a great job here.

SO! SO!! Cute!!!
Never hurts to try something different and I’m sure you learned something from this project, if nothing else the seats are a winner!
Please another picture of the front seat and add a pop can so we can get a better feel for the size.

Looked at the site and plans and I agree with you. I really like what you did with the plans much better.. Great work.

Superb, It looks absolutely brilliant, I would have given up on it at the start because I really wouldn’t have the patience for a project like that from the beginning.
