Another model build

Started another model build this past weekend. This one is going to take a while but we aren't in a hurry are we? Needed to start the build by laminating some 8/4 walnut. Now, we wait until the weekend so that we can do something with this stock.

I do love a good chunk of walnut. One of my favourite woods.

8 hours in the shop today and 8 hours well spent. A lot of set up meant less actual work getting done but I'm happy with the results of the parts so far so the setup was worth it. More tomorrow.

Ooo, my favorite game, guessing what magic Kenbo is working this time!

Tanker truck maybe?

Everything i build comes with a redneck warranty. If it breaks you get to keep both pieces.

Another day, another 10 pictures. Used a rustic jig to be able to flatten the turning on one side and then drill the needed holes in the turning. Also got some front wheel assemblies made as well as some other smaller parts. Doesn't look like much yet but we are getting there. A dry fit finished up the day quite nicely.

Same here. Then I started thinking, 'He makes trucks, and a lighthouse isn't a truck.'

This particular set is from Toys n Joys. You can check their website to see their plans. This is an older set and as usual, there are missing dimensions all over the place. The plans have a ton of my scribbles all over them, filling in the blanks as I go. Pretty much par for the course but I enjoy the challenge.

Well let's see what I did today. I assembled the trains cabin and added some details to it. I also cut and shaped the roof and the roof vents as well as cutting the interior section of the boiler. I turned a couple of barrels for the rear of the train as well as cutting the train's wheel links. There wasn't much more to report other than that but it was another 7 hours in the shop which is just fine by me. We are at 30 hours so far on this build and it is going well thus far. Everything may fall apart when I start making the wheels.
