Haven’t been on here for ages.
Here’s some photos of my latest 1/20 scale wooden model which is based on, ” Bandit’s Truck, ” from the movie, Smokey & the Bandit.
Yes,- I will be building a few of this model,- already have a good half a dozen orders here in Australia,- and the model has only been on Facebook for about a week, & now iit’s on here as well.
The graphics are custom-printed onto quality self-adhesive Vinyl-Wrap by my local commercial print shop.
Yes,- the highly detailed full size Woodworking plan is also available to anyone who wishes to have a go at build their very own model of, ” The Bandit’s Truck . ”
The Plan is drawn onto A3 size heavy paper & comprises of 35 pages plus the cover, and comes with the Graphics & decals which are in a separate Mailing Tube.

  • If someone in the USA, Canadian region would like to do a Business deal with me & purchase the Publication Rights for North America, & Europe for this Woodworking plans, or, ( perhaps ) for ALL of my woodworking plans, – Please contact me, as will save me & customers a lot of postage & associated production costs, as whoever the buyer is, they can also build all of my Aussie designed wood crafts for sale as well.

Used to live at Port Vincent, Yorke Peninsula, S.A. till the lease expired, then relocated inland to the rural town of Minlaton where I have now been living for about 2 yrs.

Great job Mate.
Thanks for sharing.

Bob

-- 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.

Why do you need a distributor? Can’t you digitize them and let people download them as a PDF file? I prefer to purchase plans that way instead of have to take them over to FedEx and have them scanned and put into a PDF file for me so I can cut the parts on my CNC. In fact, that’s how I purchased Dutchy’s ‘32 Buick, by just downloading them as a PDF file.

By the way, Great looking project!

PapaGary1—- I am in my 70’s, and NOT very good with Computer stuff,- as been a woodworker for a good 50 something years, and still draw up ALL my woodworking plans the Old Way, using real pencils, real pens, rulers and paper as that’s the ONLY way I know.
As for this Digital file stuff,-( Which I admit I got no idea about ), How many people own or have access to an A3 size printer, or even an Office Size Color printer,- and know what they are doing without stuffing up ?
Here in Australia, the Color inks are Aust.$210 a set of four, and which you would need to spend IF I knew how to send the plans including the full color A2 size decals to you in the USA so you can down load & print off the full size plan using an A3 size printer,- while IF you bought the plan from me, which includes the professionally printed color decals, you are only paying me Aust. $75. plus about $25. air mail postage, ( US$58. plus, US$18 post ). —make sense,- or as clear as mud ???—- By the way,- thank you for the compliment.

I took this photo in my Minlaton, South Australia backyard for The Australian Woodworker magazine who are doing a feature promo for me in their Aug-Sept 2021 issue.
Actually took a heap of photos,- 50% of which were disasters,- which is nothing unusual for me as am NOT very good with all this modern computer stuff at all,- still wish for the old 35mm Film camera as from memory, had heaps more success with that,—Don’t even own or even know how to use one of those, ’ smart phone, ’ things,- Did try one once,- it drove me up the wall in frustration,- so gave it to my neighbours kids to play with !

Hi Roger,

Actually I’m 70 also, but that has nothing to do with what I was referring to. In the past, I’ve ordered patterns for Intarsias and models, where they sent it to me in large 24-inch by 36-inch sheets, which forced me to go to FedEx which has a large scale scanner and save it to a PDF file, where I could load it into my computer. Once in the computer, I could either print at any size I want or convert it to a file that I could use for my CNC machine.

To scan a large page is about $2.00 per sheet, so if your model consists of say 30-sheets, your initial cost is $60.00. You could then sale it for a lot less than what you mentioned, because your cost is less and more people would buy it at a lower price and save the postage fee and long waiting time. For A3 size the cost is a few pennies per sheet.

You should talk to Dutchy on how he does his. The model I bought from him, once converted to U.S. dollars cost me $12.00 and I started work on it a few minutes after I bought and received it.

If you’re unfamiliar with commuters, find someone who is, and setup a website. The cost is minimal and easy to do. I would love to do one of your models but doing it the way I suggest, the project would be done before I received it in the mail by the way you’re doing it now and save me additional cost and time to run over to FedEx and convert them to a PDF file.

Anyway, please don’t take this for anything but a compliment. Your models are superb.

Gary

PapaGary1,—- Sorry ,- I am NOT interested in wasting hours & hours of my time scanning ALL my Plans onto a scanner as I have OVER 100 individual plans and they are all on real paper,—- You prepared to stand in front of a scanner for hours & hours scanning each separate plan of about 30 something A3 size sheets ????—Also can YOU afford about $6,000 in costs just to use the scanner,- because I do NOT have that kind of spare money as here I am on the Australian Age Pension,- and by the time I pay the rent for this old house & workshop, plus living expenses there’s not much left for anything !
  • IF this digital stuff is so good, & safe, & crooks, thieves & scammers can’t steal one’s property, – then why are Toys & Joys Plans, & the U-can-Make it Plans still on Paper & not on this Digital stuff which you embrace ?
    I do NOT TRUST the INTERNET as seen too many stolen products that my friends have designed then put the item on a website,- only to have their design/s STOLEN by some crook,- and I am NOT prepared to take that risk !
