1917 Federal Motor truck

While trying to decide what structure to model next I decided to build a very old model truck.  It is small and sadly the photos are not great but you can get the idea.  I started with an old style plastic fire engine.  I removed all but the front and lower cab area - it had no real cab.  The rest of the model was made from wood and card stock.

The wheels were plastic commercial parts.

The truck bed is all wood strips.

Above is the prototype I used to create the model.  My model is not exactly the same but I did not like the cab roof and supports.
