Summary

Summary

Detailed assembly drawings that show each step of building trains, planes, motorcycles, and trucks make these eight vehicle projects easy for woodworkers to complete. Starting with a full list of the materials needed to complete each vehicle, these plans guide crafters through the entire building process--from making the first cut to adding such finishing details as wheels and buckets. Full-size cutting templates are also furnished for hobbyists to use as-is or as springboards for creating their own custom vehicles.

Library Journal Review

Kids (and grownups who are young at heart) can never have enough toys. In these titles, St-Amour shows how to make a slew of realistic model vehicles from wood. Each title offers plans for eight vehicles: a bulldozer, backhoe, pickup truck, airliner, motorcycle, and a train are just some of the offerings. Building toys with small parts requires special care because of the choking hazard to small children. St-Amour solves this problem by offering plans to make similar trucks in two of the books; one offers rugged designs without small parts for kids (Making Construction Vehicles for Kids) and the other offers more elaborate display models (Realistic Construction Models You Can Make). The third title, Amazing Vehicles You Can Make, offers designs for both play and display with guidelines for use. The attractive designs are appealing, offering something for everyone. Most woodworkers will be capable of completing these designs, although some are much more complex than others. All of these titles will be of interest to woodworkers and should be part of libraries' collections. If you can only justify one of these titles, the Amazing Vehicles will serve the widest audience.
