John Truelove from Thailand has converted Aschi's Free Plan  to something big!!

Hi Peter, Good day to you.                                                 The little red fire truck is now finished. Photo’s attached. Must say it’s one of the easiest models I have made and a credit to you. Next is a modification to the little red fire truck (Big brother) photo’s attached.  Very straight forward to do. Overall the rig is 23 3/4 inch long.  Cheers, John

John Truelove from Thailand:  Hi Peter, Just finished the Old English truck (Aschi’s Workshop Plan #123) Photo's attached.  Did a few changes.

1. Turned it into a beer can carrier ( no change to chassis length or width or cab. )           2. Made an exhaust box on one side other side made into a fuel tank ( just added a filler )                3. Changed rad due to my error in measuring (must remember measure twice cut once ).  John is making fantastic models, most from teak.

Andrea Greco,  Middletown, NY.:  Dear Peter, thank you for the plans. They were clear, accurate and easy to follow. I was very happy with the results, and I hope the little boy who will receive the train will get many years of enjoyment out of it. I thought you might want a picture of the finished train. I gave it a coat of color, sanded it down to make it look like a much loved vintage toy, and finished it with wax and a light buffing.  Aschi's Plan #144
