Congrats. I look forward to seeing you give it the rust and industrial painted metal treatment. 1:1 scale modeling projects are so much fun

What? Someone had to suggest it. Of course it would be me

Drive safely Dave, and enjoy the ride. Be careful with Bean. Small dogs and airbags are a bad mix. At the very least I hope that you have a doggie seat belt.

Question: All caps, WARGAMING TERRAIN TRANSPORT VEHICLE, like the CRASSUS ARMOURED ASSAULT TRANSPOURT?

Thanks!
LOL, after much research and inner debate between the Toyota or the Nissan, RUST, actually decided it for me.

Toyota has had a lot of recalls on the Tacomas for frame rust. In some cases, they've cut checks to owners for double or triple the blue book value of the used truck. I had a guy stop by the house to give me an estimate on taking a dirty old silver maple tree down, he was driving an 09 Tacoma. The body was flawless, no rust. I asked him, he said he's had nothing but problems with rust on the frame. Changing brake pads broke tools. I went to the Dealership (I like messing with the salesmen) they don't want you to leave the dealership, so I farted around, pretending to make up my mind for awhile. Verbally comparing the Toyota specs, Drinking their free coffee and cookies I spoke with a service guy who was there. I asked him about Nissan rust. He said "come with me, I wanna show you something" and took me out into the back parking lot, and showed me his 1997 or 98 Nissan Frontier, NO RUST. Mind you, this isnt Dry-land Texas, this is Indiana, lots of SNOW and WET, and SALT and long-ass winters where we have zero public transportation. I see NEWER Dodges, Fords, and Chevy's every day with bubbly rust all over the bodies (I look at them for modeling inspiration) so, to see a 20 year old Pick Up with ZERO rust, is quite the miracle. What good is an Engine that will last 2-300k miles if the body rusts away? Then I kept telling my wife, "let's sleep on it, come back tomorrow" and they start making deals.....

The caps are to leave no doubt this is WARGAMING RELATED I HAVE to get to my FLGS to haul a maximum bed payload of UP TO 1500 Lbs OR I can tow a trailer of UP TO 6500 Lbs of sprues, and paint, back home

@Red - The first thing I did was take Bean for a ride all the way across town to the Penguin Point drive-thru for cheeseburgers She loves rides, and cheese. I never drive it like I stole it.

I buckle up my dog unless I am driving through the neighborhood, then she gets to sit up front and sniff out the slightly open window. I may be a bit over-protective.

You get a power inverter and big ass capacitors. As long as the engine runs, it's scorchin' time

Silver is an excellent color for a car or truck. Much nicer than white, less aggravating to the police than red. Easier to see than black. Now gold is a tacky color, except for a gold ragtop 1969 corvette like my 6th grade teacher drove. Sweet car.

I just wanted to.say thanks for the rusted metal tutorial. Tried following your instructions today with my son and its.going pretty well so far. i managed to borrow my dad's airbrush making it rather easier.

The Boy chose his own colours and I didn't realise quite how close they were so.his is a bit subtle



I chose a strongercontrast but have some learning to do on the consistencybrequired to scrape that top layer off.



Should be dry soon so.i can do the other side of each bulkhead.

Thanks again!

I still haven't painted anything. My Days off have been spent doing IRL stuff, unfortunately. However, I met the one and only Bootsy Collins yesterday,(he played bass for James Brown's Original J.B.s, Most of Parliament, all of Funkadelic, Bootsy's Rubber Band, and that was just the 70s) so that's pretty cool.

Well, My Wonderful Wife bought me a new Tool, a SkillSaw WormDrive portable Jobsite Tablesaw. as you know, My only woodworking area has been mobile since we moved into this house, and you know we bought this house with the unfinished barn in the backyard.

And my workbench was my two trusty sawhorses. I've upgraded from a bowed piece of old plywood to a door

So I used the new WARGAMING TERRAIN TRANSPORT VEHICLE to get some Lumber and started building a Combination Table Saw Outfeed Table / Assembly Table / Workbench

With my Intrepid Shop Assistant, Bean...we worked and worked

The concrete out here is also uneven, so my design has a lot of legs, those legs can flex up and down a bit under the weight of the top as I move it around the shop. I built it heavy and sturdy

3/4" plywood top


Flush Trim Routed, as the top isn't designed perfectly square and true, flatness was the goal.

Then Trimmed with Poplar hardwood. It's not actually from the Poplar tree, its from the Tulip Tree. It's cheap, and plentiful around these parts.


Then routed a 45 degree chamfer on the edge to knock down the sharpness and assist sliding big boards and sheet goods onto it.

Then did a LOT of filling, sanding, and Rubbed a Danish Oil Finish on it. I payed a lot more attention to the top than the bottom shelf, as that will mostly store lumber stock.

The Poplar has a green Fungus figure grain, that turns almost black when oiled. I like it.


I designed it so that the cast iron top of the Table Saw (also chamfered) sits exactly 3/8" above the worktop so the Miter Gague slides out unimpeded. The Fence extends to 25" right, so I can rip full 4x8' sheet goods, and the 4x4' outfeed table is enough to catch full sheet goods.

Dave, poplar tends to get the greenish color; it's a normal thing, not fungus induced.

The term for wood that has been colored by fungus is 'spalting' and it can produce some really cool, and colorful effects. I have a small table I built with some spalted tulip poplar that I milled myself from a fallen tree that had been on my parent's property. </lecture>

Poplar can 'burn' when one uses a router on it. The smell is appalling. It is cheap though. Filler wood.

Get yourself some good bench vices too. Yes, I know that you already know that...
