Nice start on the roof, Mike. I sure wish I had the lumber contract for your build.

Thank you, George. Yes, Iím going through packs of stripwood at an appalling rate. Iíve been saving the packaging to see how many Iíve emptied.

Galen - Nice wagon build

Rob - I see you working on the Ford assembly line, good work. I never would think of using aluminum foil for tarps, they look great

Mike - Nice work too, It's taking shape nicely and great wood colors

I am uploading one of my awlfull workbench photos...I have a small update on my current portion of my build too. I have all the parts cut-out for the next building, including floor supports that I added. I install floors on each level to keep the building square and they provide no warping of any side, or keep that a a very minimum.




I will color the interior walls next and add bracing to the entire inside, then continue.

It has been difficult to post and do more like I wanted with an ongoing kitchen remodel at our home, which has taken a lot of my modeling time away from working on this build. I will try updating again soon as time permits.

Stick with it, Rich. Looks good.

Mike - I for one am curious to know how many packs of lumber you will have gone through at the end of this project.

Rob - Nice load of stuff for the truck.

I put a little brown paint on some of the underframe bits for the wagon, but nothing worth sharing just yet.

Iíll bet both Chester and Frederick would be checking all of your spectacular builds as often as they could. All of your work would certainly have met their approval.

Mike, I really like all the effort you're putting into the roof supports, only for it to be all covered up. Should look from the inside.


Thanks Rich, Galen and Terry for your nice comments. The truck load just finishes it off.

Rich, your new build is off to a great start. Plenty of structural support is always good, to stop the dreaded wall warp. Yours is very neat.
Like you, I won't quite complete everything I wanted too. Was hoping to get the wharf done too, but am too busy now.

Here's a few overall shots of how the truck turned out.

Mike,

Remember Calvin & Hobbes! "Questions you don't want the answers to you shouldn't ask!"

Cool build, though!

Rob,

We never build all we want to, there's always something to add.

That sure is a snazzy truck. I like the license plate. Nice work.

Thank you, Terry, Rob and Pete.

Rob, I considered leaving some of the roofing off to show off the construction; probably wonít. Fine looking truck.

Pete, I always used a lot of discretion asking questions of those above me.

Mike
