You can see from the examples shown here that there are an interesting variety of vehicles you can make using this pack of patterns. Included are full size patterns for old fashioned cars, classic cars, race cars, a police car, a garbage truck, a fire engine, a hum-vee, a bull dozer, plus there are several tips about making this sort of toy. Most of the vehicles are 5-8 inches long, but some are larger and a few are smaller.
The 28 series (plans that start with 28-) are the best of the projects from Editors of Woodcraft Magazine. Plans feature step by step instructions with photographs, some include exploded illustrations for various project steps, a cut list and cutting diagram, and a Convenience Plus Buying Guide so you know exactly what supplies are required to complete the project.
Great value in this package.

After the success of three previous Ford automobile wood projects, we introduce our fourth. It was Henry Ford’s first car.
The Stutz Bearcat was a favoured status symbol in early automotive history. It began production in 1921 and quickly gained attention with a 360 cubic inch, 4 cylinder L head engine and 60 horsepower. It won significant auto races during this era.
The Ford Depot Hack was developed to carry passengers and their luggage to and from train stations. Station wagons evolved from these vehicles.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost was legendary and almost certainly the most majestic car of that era.
The Stanley Steamer was invented by twins, Francis and Freelan Stanley, building early steam engines practical for auto use. Their early steam motor only had 13 moving parts.
