This is the Mining Truck using Toys and Joys plans, shrunk down to fit with my other models.
It has 3” wheels which works nicely with the semis that use mostly 2 7/8 wheels, they would by the plans be 4 1/4” way to big for my liking.
The only odd angles is the dump box which is made using 13 degrees.
The short blog is here.
You may have noticed but I’m going back through and building models form my collection of plans, may not be that different than last time but used different woods.

What can one say…another great model. I am very envious and just starting to look at building one. I am reading all your blogs to gain some insight.

Beautiful work Bruce. I could really use a truck like this to drive away all my cut-offs.

I’m in the same boat Mike!
I really need to straighten up my shop before I start any thing else but once I get something in mind the mess is not noticed. lol
