This is a 28 Chevy Pick-up built from the Toys & Joys plan. Woods used in construction: Frame is roasted maple. Fenders are walnut. Body is cherry. Bed in truck oak. Finish is rattle can varethane.
This was a fun project to build. This model will be donated to the club I belong to and use in their upcoming car show in August. Should make a nice door prize.

Wayne: please note: all wood used was locally grown....No raping of the rain forest. In fact a lot of the material came from my scrap pail...... :D

Beautiful work Brian. My woodworking skills end at framing a wall. :D

Brian, another beautiful work of art. I hope your club is grateful, for all these one of a kind models. Nice work on the laminated fenders, what glue do you use and have you ever tried a bulldozer?

First....I do own a plan for both a back hoe and a couple of dozers. But I have never built them, one day maybe.
And as for the fenders, no lamination here. These are cut out in one piece from a piece of 2x4 on the band saw. Then tapered and sanded as required to fix.
 
Brian, sorry for that! I was looking at the back side of the right fender in the first picture and thought the grain was too wide the be one piece. Can you give us a rough size of the model.

This little guy is 14" long. 5.5" wide and about 6" tall.
