Well, I finally finished the first attempt at a wooden truck build.
I didn’t have time last weekend to work on it.
Made this for my companies owner for the businesses 90th anniversary.
It think it turned out pretty cool.
A few mistakes were made, but isn’t that what this is all about, learning as you go.
Next time i am going to try and make my own wheels.

Must agree with you TW... did turn out cool!

Briliamt model… love the inside and you’ve chosen a great mix of timbers… Being a first build makes it just that much more impressive.

..... A few mistakes were made,...

The only mistake I can see is your lay back seat…gallery picture 5…

A very impressive build Tim, and not just because it’s your first. The cab interior is really cool too.
