Default Off-road Jeep

I started this toy Jeep project today with a block of basswood. The plan comes from a 2009 SSW magazine article-

Thanks. Here are two more steps- cutting out the rear fenders...

Nice work Dave, I had fun making mine. I finished it in January 2008. I made my own gas can and wheels and used model car tires.

It only has a few parts, which makes it a lot more fun. Merle, I like the rubber tires you used, rather than the recommended pine derby type. It looks more realistic.

My son's last pine derby race is this March - I should find that issue and see if he or any of his troop want to make the jeep.... Thanks for the reminder!

Carving out the wheel-well involved more handwork for me than the article's suggestion of grinding the wood with a rotary tool. I used a small gouge and chisel.


Front fenders cut out and attached...
