Flatbed Truck & Grand Prix Racer

Flatbed Truck

Materials: 1/4″ plywood, IKEA Kitchen filler pieces, pine shelf cleats, screw hole plugs, trim

The edged curve of the kitchen fillers provided a nice detail for the front of the flatbed truck cab. The existing width is 2 3/8″ which is ideal for the scale. The wrapped thermo-foil white provides a smooth clear finish. The other components blend in with the surface. The top and middle pieces were painted white and the under-carriage piece was painted grey. The Grand Prix Racers can be lightly stained or left unfinished. Total cost: $3 (for wheels, axles and O rings)
