Curious if you've tried to sell these?
I don't remember what John Boy drove and I don't plan on watching any re-runs to find out.Firebird, I apologize for hijacking your thread, I get carried away talking about cars and trucks. I do want to make some models cars and trucks, especially the 29 stake bed truck with side boards. Also the car like John Boy had on the Waltons.
Many say that. It was my living but I still enjoy it.I haven't tried selling but a friend offered to buy one. I gave it to her, it was going to be a gift for her dad. I don't want what is now a fun hobby to turn into a job. There are plenty of charity auctions that will be happy to take any extras off of my hands.
I like your truck Hank. I am sorry I didn't see your above post for some reason until just now. No I didn't make the doors to open on this one. I plan to make the rumble seat open on the 30 Ford roadster I am fixing to build. The wheels are not that hard to make if you have a lathe and drill press. I made mine like Kenbo here on the forum made his wheels but a little different:I was showing some of my work to a friend who just retired from a dump truck driving career and he mentioned that he would like a model of a truck. I was kicking around what to do next and it just clicked. I had already make a set of wheels and the engine radiator and cowl so it made for a good start.

Up next, a Point Beer (local small town brewery) delivery truck for my brother-in-law who collects all things Point Beer.
