Just finished my first wooden model a Mack Superliner 2. It is a present for my sons first birthday.
I got the plans from a Richard Blizzard book we had when i was growing up and i have always wanted to try and build it
Made from recycled timber from houses i have renovated through work most of it is New Zealand Rimu the front grill guards and other accents are kwila decking the exhausts and air cleaners are pine.
made using mostly hand tools
Dimensions are 700mm long 280mm wide 330mmto the top of sleeper not sure of scale as Richard doesn’t list one but i think it is around 1/10
Has working steering and opening doors on the sleeper left off the mirrors as im sure my boy will soon break them off, it is going to be a toy
Thanks for having a look i know its not the best on here but i am defiantly happy with it

So defiantly, you definitely should be Ali’... Great build.

Not being rude, how old is your son?... Just trying to establish life expectancy of the truck…

PS. Neat job on the photography as well.

lbd second sentence – my sons first birthday
700 mm long ( about 28” ). Wow that’s big. Pretty sure your toddler won’t be throwing it around.
You should be happy with it, it’s a darn good looking truck. Really like the magnets holding the doors

I’m dyslexic, I never read the 2nd. sentence of the first line… and then I jump down and look for that hidden fine print of any document.

OK… life expectancy is 5 minutes after first steps give or take 4 minutes.

yep, pretty sure that would be one of those “look what I gave you and you can play with it in 15 years” gifts.

Great job! Even greater considering this is your first one.
Looks pretty sturdy too. Should stand up to a one year old for awhile. He will love the opening doors.
