    Thought I'd get started on a Semi Truck using the Toys and Joys plans.

    You seem to knock these beaut models out with so much ease Bruce, though I'm sure that isn't the case...
    Looks good sir, cheers, Peter

    Love the cab details. Pity the pedals and steering wheel seam to be for us Australians on the wrong side of the cab. They need to be on the right side (which they are).

    Can't wait for the rest of the build with your excellent images.

    Its going to come to Aus, didn't you notice the gauges on the RHS of the dash, the next stage will be the RHD conversion.

    I really like the equal gap all the way around between the door and frame. Skillful work mate

    I glued a pattern of the truck side on some wood then cut out between the lines for the door [scroll saw with thin blade] then sanded to straiten the cuts out, then used a walnut door panel to hold it all together.
    It would have been nice to make some hinges but just not up to that at this time.
    There's much better ways to do this using pattern jigs for one, but just making two doors I couldn't see doing that.
    And thanks all for checking this and all my posts out.
