Transcript of Model Truck

Model Truck
Assembly of the Base
Square a line down the center of the base and the two axle. Center lines have to line up when glued.
Hood Components
Square a line down the center of all hood parts.
Cab Components
All edges should meet up evenly when gluing. together.
The box is glued right behind the Cab as closes as possible, and square on the base.
Front Axle
Fender Supports
Rear Axle
Fire Wall
Along with the bill of materials you can assemble a truck.
First, fabricate each piece on the bill of materials to the proper thickness width and length.
This is the piece that everything will be glued to.
The front axle will fit in between the two springs, flush with the front of the base and centered .
Measure and mark a line 55mm from the back of the springs. The line will be lined up with he front of the base. the flat side of the spring will be glued to the base.
On the base square a line at 77mm from the back end (where the box will go) glue the fender supports flush with the edge of the base.
18mm from back of base.
Make sure that you sand the hood at 2 degrees so that it is 92 degrees.
Trace hood on fire wall so they will line up. Sand to that line at 80 degrees.
Mark center line measure 3mm from the bottom, place the compass where the two lines intersect. Draw a radius of 47mm sand to the line.
Lay the pieces in the right order (front post,door, back post) on a non-binding surface and glue together. Stretch a piece of masking tape across them as a clamp.
Back of cab
Measure 20mm down from the top and square a line and 20mm in from each side, this marks the centers where you will drill the holes on the drill press.
Glue the cab sides back, floor and roof together than glue in the dash. If the dash is a little to long you can sand it down a little but make sure not to make it too small. Than trace the the roof stencil for the profile of the roof, also trace a dime on the rear corner of the cab and on the disc sander sand to the lines.
Use stencil to get the correct shape for the springs than sand them down with the disc sander
77mm line
There should be even over hang on each side
Roof and Corners of cab
When the hood is assembled line up the center lines on the hood and the base. the front of the hood will be lined up with the front of the base so that the radiator is over hanging.
When gluing the radiator on to the hood make sure that it is lined up on the top so that there is overhang on the bottom
Make sure that the bottoms are all flush with one another.
Box base
Make sure that there is a center line down the middle of the pieces.
The pieces will be glued perpendicular to each other like a "T". the longer piece is the top of the "T".If it is not when it gets glued to the box and you sand the bevel on the box you may have problems with your box sides.
Main parts of the Box
Glue all the sides to the bottom of the box .
Square a center line on the bottom of the box. Glue the bottom of the box square to the base.
The Bevel
Set the disc sander at 64 degrees. Sand the sides against the sander until there is a nice bevel.
The Cab gets glued square on the base and right behind the Firewall.
Inside and Outside
The in side fender is thinner than the outside fender.
Trace the stencils and the correct piece of wood. than use the scroll saw to cut out the piece of unwanted wood.
* When using the scroll saw make sure that the guard is set so that it i holding your work on the table. if it is not it is going to be a lot harder to use.
Gluing the Inside to the Outside
Make sure that when gluing the inside to the outside fender that you glue them mirror images of each other, one for each side or you will have two for the same side.
Final Fender
Using the stencil marked final fender trace out the outside shape of the fender. Cut with the scroll saw.
Final steps
Sand the top of the inside fender on the disc sander at 64 degrees until you reach the glue line where the inside and outside fenders meet.
Than rouder the outside edges of the two fenders to give them a nice gentile edge.
Dry fit the fenders before you glue them on because it will most likely need a little more sanding so that it fits snug against the Truck.
Turn your wheels on a lathe till you are happy with them.
Drill a whole through the front axle and the rear axle for the dowel that will hold your wheels.
Then preform the marshmallow trick, rounding the edges on the sander.
Cut them to the desired thickness on the band saw.
The Final Project
By: Sabrina Tigwell
Mr. Wilson's tech class project
April 17, 2014
Drill your holes through the axles so you can put the piece of doweling.
Use the drill with a level so you that your hole will be perfect.
Make sure that the wheel hubs on the fenders are centered over the axles.
