“C” Cab Delivery Van

This little truck was inspired by Doug, aka Hunter71.

I’d seen him make some beautiful delivery vans in a C cab pattern.

Some time ago he’d kindly shared his “C” cab pattern with me which was extremely generous and helpful as it gave me a starting point.

I’ve used Doug’s pattern on a number of trucks but thought it was about time to have a go at a Delivery Van.

Not a heap of extra detail on this first attempt but enough to make an interesting toy for a child’s play.

As you can see the van is about 12” long.

The timbers are as follows:
Spotted Gum sides,
Tallow Wood roof & rear doors,
Merbau for the engine & radiator as well as the mudguards [fenders],
Tassie Oak for the running boards as is the chassis,
The finish is my Home-Made Wipe-On-Poly.

Shop bought 2” wheels and ale pegs plus the furniture buttons used for lights.

Button steering wheel and bead gear shift on bamboo skewers.

Not sure if this one’s for the community club fund raising or as a gift.

Another great little vehicle crowie... Is that C for Cab or one letter short for Delivery? Being a Holden boy, I’m not up with your alphabet.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Peter, Great work and very nicely crafted…..
I remember Those kind of Vans when I was growing up. Some of them didn’t have a drivers door, it was totally open, I think for the purpose of getting out of the Van and Getting back in again as quick as possible.

Regards…...Cliff.
