A  Ford "C Cab" Farm Truck for Easter Guessing Competition, fundraiser at the local community club.
Yes friends Easter is fast approaching and everyone loves a truck load of Easter Eggs to share the joy.
The Boys & Girls Club will fill the back with a load of chocolate Easter eggs and if you can guess the correct number you win the eggs and toy truck. 
 The truck is 19" [485mm] long; 6-3/8" [165mm] wide and 7.5" [190mm] made from a mixture of Aussie Hardwood offcuts with enough detail to make it realistic. 
Only 20 hours in this build roughly using the free plan on Dutchy's website as a base.

The wheels are shop bought as are the furniture button lights.
The steering wheel is a couple of wooden buttons with the Ford logo lasered for me by Alex aka LBD.
Papa Smurf and Handy Smurf have given their tick of approval for our handiwork.
The finish is my homemade wipe-on-poly 3-4 coats have given the truck a nice shine.
On of the volunteer management committee is filling the back of the truck and wrapping the truck for the fundraiser.
Hoping for a good response to the fundraiser for the club.
Have a blessed Easter everyone.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Good work, Peter!

May you have the day you deserve!

Aces Peter!

Don't know about carting eggs (Duck eggs?) in a cargo truck, but the fund raiser sounds like a worthy cause!

Another fine piece of art!

The plan is for free on my website Peter, indeed I made the drawing, BUT it is your plan, you are the master/designer in this case.

What a fun project! You'll have to give us an update once the guessing is done.
All ready for the “Guessing Competition”
