I thought I would share one of my toy truck projects , over the years I have made over two dozen hand built toy trucks but this one is by far my favorite. I always loved the old Mack Trucks too . I had no idea if I could fabricate the cab to look correct . It was tricky but I did it the first time and got lucky. It is far from perfect but I was pleased with it. The one photo shows the rear duel wheels and a partial frame. That frame and wheels sat in my shop for five years until I finally got back to it. For a while I never thought I would finish it.

I love it.  You really do know how to do it.  I wouldn't be worried that you wouldn't get something like a cab right next time.  :thumbs:
