  1. Ford Pickup 1951

    Here are a few photos of my just finished latest project I used T&J plan. I now need to make up the mind what to try next I have now built a model from each of the plan sets I purchased I would like to do a tow truck or fire truck but I want to make much more finer detail than the older T&J...
  2. Drill Indexing jig for small parts.

    One of my passions is T&J model toys for which the requirements call for drilling a number of small holes, ranging from 3 to 20+ over a small circumference to simulate nuts etc… on vehicles' rims. While I have the luxury of a laser that makes life easier for me, my meds mush have kicked in and...
  3. Hydraulic Crane

    Here is my recently finished crane the T & J plan with a few mods sorry about the poor photo quality Garry I have added some extra photos better but not perfect
  4. Dodge Power Wagon

    Its been a while in building but here is some photos of my version of the Dodge Power Wagon I used the T&J plan but changed a few things like Rear body ; wide wheels plus other minor things Who can name the timber used for the main cab and font panels ?
  5. Moving Truck

    After completing the trucks for my four granddaughters, my son wondered where his truck was. So, I decided to construct a moving truck with three rear axles. The cab and engine sections are modelled after the T&J Tow Truck which I made for my daughter. The remainder is my own design. The...
  6. 1931 Cadillac Roadster

    Having completed a few of the T&J train models last year I thought I'd like to try one of their car models and picked the 1931 Cadillac Roadster to start with. Primarily made from Cherry and Maple, with the trunk being Spalted Beech. A fun build, but I found that it is really key to review the...
  7. Big Rig with Flatbed Trailer

    In my quest to construct legacy toys for my granddaughters, I just finished the T&J Big Rig truck for my granddaughter Halle from pattern 32-1; but I designed my own flat bed trailer. For the trailer I used maple floor boards and edged them with poplar. The poplar is held in place with 5/16"...
  8. Meet “Arty” my little articulated friend.

    "Arty", is instalment #3 of my foray into the wonders of T&J model construction (Articulated Tractor #95). The build itself was a regular orchestrations of draw, cut, sand, glue, curse, unglue, re-draw, re-cut, re-sand, re-glue, curse again, unglue again… I think you get the picture. While...
  9. “Logger” pulls his weight.

    As I was drafting this post I was faced with the conundrum of quality vs quantity. My wife always insisted I was a windbag and not to besmirch her reputation, I decided, to hell with quality and let's go with quantity. So if you have some idle time to spare, read on and if you find inordinate...
  10. Hummer

    I finished this build in January 2016 (before discovering LJ). I posted these few pictures on request and to boost my upload quota. If anyone is interested and familiar with SketchUp, I have the full model imported into a SU model and can provide the link on request. My contact is...
  11. My first T&J model affectionately known as "Digger".

    This was the mongrel that started my dog with a bone obsession with T&J models. It has been affectionately nicknamed "Digger", though I still haven't figured out why and I would have called it a gymnast on a cross beam. I think that the first gallery picture is interesting as it is a collage...
  12. Introducing my "Fiery" blonde.

    "Fiery" was my second instalment of T&J models and completed early to mid 2015. Trying not to be politically incorrect, she is not a real red-head but more so a blonde and if you saw all the mistakes I made on it you'd not be surprised at her choice of hair colour. It was a fun build and I...
  13. Wheel kerfing jig for T&J models

    Hi all. I have been debating whether I should publishing this article regarding my "Wheel kerfing jig" for T&J destined wheels because the jig is primarily laser cut with only the indexing pin created using conventional woodworking techniques. "Laser cut???" you say… well join in the...
  14. How to make a $50, A2 scanner for $200.

    Hi Lumberjocks and Jockettes, As with my previous "Wheel kerfing jig" I was in two minds whether to publish this article as it is primarily centered around laser cutting (or one of those radical CNC machines). The missus advised me against it so while her back was turned, I took a couple of...
  15. T&J Ford Roadster

    G'day I will post a project on my first go at a scale model it is the T&J pattern 73 I chose this one first as I wanted a easy to make one for first try at a model Now I know what to make from all those small bits of nice wood. Garry
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I've finally got around to making two wooden Jeeps for my nephews who asked for them ages ago. Thankfully I found a book with plans for a monster truck, but a 1948 Ford. I'm using the plans for the bottom half of the truck but have to come up with the "Jeep" part on my own. After searching...

    Does anyone have any ideas how to make an exhaust heat shield to put on the exhaust stacks for the WS tractor. I want to add some detail. Thanks.
  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hey guys, has anyone here made the Abrams tank from T&J? I'm trying to figure out how the turret is connected to the main body and still be able to swing left or right. The plans aren't very clear how that is assembled. Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Chassis I started building a wooden combine. Below a set of pictures of the building proces of the chassis. I made this chassis out of 6 pieces. On the construction drawing it is one piece. I like to use more pieces. I have no pretensions to say that this is the right way, It is only my way...
