Default Hello from Australia

This is my first post by the way of introduction.
I was trained as mechanical engineer but spent my working (in Australia) in building industry as plumber and project manager.
I have been doing woodwork for about 3 years and make scale models, children toys, jewelery boxes etc.
I will attach a samle of my work and post some more in "Show and Tell".

G'Day John,
What excellent work on that set of trucks [semi-trailers].
From the one photo, you've made a great timber mix&match selection.
Who's plans did you use to make them please?
Some more photos of each truck would be beaut, please.
Cheers, crowie

PS - Have a look at the woodwork forum in the toymaking section; some top trucks, cars and toys just like yours.....Australian based

HI John,
Like you, I am new to this site and live in the land of Aus. Talk about hitting the ground running, these projects of yours are fantastic. It is my aim to start making toys and the like out of scrap and donating to the Christmas giving as well as the family. What you have here is very inspiring, Thanks
