Add my praise the the others John. I can see I'm going to have to have a go at some of these for my grandson. Now all I need is some spare time and nothing else I have to do for SWMBO in the garden/house etc .

Another fantastic job John.
I'm amazed at how you make such small parts.

Bill, These parts are not that small. this truck is 17.5" long by10" high and 9.5" wide. My planer will thicknes down to 6mm, which is the thickness of the dumper part and the re-inforcing strips. The fiddliest part was gluing the 1/8th inch hand rails.
