Nice Kenbo, I'm thinking these small scale projects take as long and are as intricate as full size cabinets builds (like your roll-top desk.
Do you sell these or collect them?
Cheers

I just make these for me and I display them in my house. I wouldn't even know where to begin to sell them because they take so long to make that I would have to charge a fortune to make it worth my while. Thanks for the kind words.

Working on the trailer some more today and got the axles and the wheels installed. Started to work on the deck and found out how much of an issue I have with making things look imperfect. The plans calls for a solid, one piece deck and I just didn't think that would look good so I'm changing it up. Hopefully, it will look good when I'm done.

I think having a strip floor looks more realistic.
Looking good can't wait too see it finished.

That's kind of what I thought. The plans called for just a single piece of stock but I didn't want it to be so bland so I used the surface of a rough cut board and cut it in strips on the scroll saw to make them irregular. Then I mixed and matched. I will cut them to length later, after I have the framework of the flatbed made. We will see how this goes I guess.

I think the strip wood floor looks great. The whole thing looks fantastic.
Is that the WS Tractor from toys and joys?

Well, today was an interesting day. I finished up on the trailer for now with the final pieces being cut and glued in place and then I decided that I couldn't have a flatbed trailer without a load. So I spent the rest of the day making miniature pallets to place a load on the rig. 14 pallets later, I was done for the day.

Sorry, I missed the question in this post. I believe it is. I don't have the pattern in front of me but I think the truck is # 108 and the trailer is # 109.
