Last year over winter I spent my spare time building a version on Smeighan's 9 foot nutcracker. It turned out a huge talking point. Well as the rain has started, I was at a loss as to what to do this year, there are so many novel ideas, so I put it to my daughter. Big mistake! This is what she wants me to build..... Just bigger! So I started by measuring the main dimensions of the model, then upscaling the whole lot to get a rough size. I have drawn the outline out on a sheet of ply ready to cut out the cab. I am taking some inspiration off videos and pictures I have seen on the internet and will be mostly making it up as I go along, but will be documenting it as I go along, so will post the build here if anyone is interested. as with the nutcracker, it is a long term project, so there will be long gaps between posts.
