Default Mercedes Truck

Built this from a set of plans but I did some modifications to make it different.

This is one of those builds where a router comes in handy, I don't think that there any toys that I have made where I have not used a router.

Very cool . I always like seeing toys made from wood for some reason . A Humvee would be cool to , as it's pretty much a vehicle with a lot of flat panels

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Love it. Brings back memories of piling up dirt and moving around with toy trucks, bulldozers and such when I was a kid. Beautiful piece of grandpa's work.

If I had enough stock, I'd change the grain direction of the piece on the front of the bed. If this is only for display, and not for play; don't worry about it!
Nice use of various species of wood.

That's a really nice looking Humvee model! Just out of curiosity, do you have any ideas on how to cut the treads in the tires?
