« Part 177: VW Bus #7 1/2 It's just about there. Part 178 of Toy Construction series Part 179: Building a Mack Dump Truck? »

This was a super fun build if it hadn’t been so cold in the shop I might have added a few more things but Brrrrr!!!
Here's the project post.

How about HTL where the VW should be.
I’ve never personalized a model before.

A ton a sanding later and.

I hope you enjoyed this blog I’m sure enjoying watching Dutchy get er done.

Bruce, That is way cool as the youngin’s would say,
BUT quote “never personalized a project”; sir your signature is all over all the beaut wood models I’ve seen come out of your shop,
whether it be detailing or design you do personalize each and everyone….
This lucky one just has your “handle/logo” front and centre and it’s prefect…TOP JOB.
Maybe Dutchy will be asking for measurements to add it as a variation to his beautiful Kombi Camper.
The blog as usual was “first class”, thank you for all the extra time & effort to share the “how I did it”...

Cheers, Peter

Ducky all the parts are right there in the picture.

First I found a hole saw that would be a little larger than the hole I drilled in the nose.
I sanded it to fit the hole in the nose on the drum sanding jig.
Then you drill out the center but not all the way through.
Using a wood clamp to hold it on the not drilled end I cut off the end with the band saw and now have my out side O.
[The wood clamp will hold it down flat so you can then hold it up to the fence to cut.]
Next I had a plug from a wheel [in the picture] with a 1/4” center hole and put it on the drum sander jig and sanded it down to fit in the O and set the drum sander to stop there.
Next I Super glued the name tag to the shaped plug on center and sanded it to fit inside the O.
You now have all the parts to glue it up.
Hope that makes it clear as mud!

Ok, I’ve changed from a duck to a bat… blind one at that.


... all the parts are right there in the picture…

  • where is the hole saw?
  • where is the sandpaper? Unless you used the Ryobi!
  • the drill bit must have rolled off the table.
  • wood clamp must have been taking a siesta!
  • I use invisible super glue too!

Thanks #4, now I can go and build my adobe hut.

Honestly, truly appreciated… but I didn’t say that… bloody missus and that stick!

I wrote parts not tools to get er done. lol
Dutchy did the same thing in his blog but I just used the drum sander jig to get it really round, as my shaky hands wouldn’t let me.
