Making model trucks can be great fun, quite challenging working on small parts but very rewarding to see the finished item. My main work is on American trucks which i make using photos and technical details. I generally scale the American trucks at about 20 to1. Below are images of some of my trucks. If you are interested in any email me and I can send more photos of each model and accurate dimensions. The models are not meant for very young children although they are strong with young children parts could break off. They are more a working display model.
