Ok, Tony. Now I'm totally impressed with your model building skills. Mortise and tenon joints in HO scale. Mind completely blown away. Just fantastic.

Mike and Dave, thank you, actually I HAD used Titebond II on these benches. I think I'll be using it more often, I like it. (I use it on my 1:1 builds, but hadn't on the models until now.)

Bernd, Thank you, I was wondering what it would take to win you over .

Tony,

You won me over a long time ago. I'm always impressed with your work as I am with all the other modelers on this forum. Great talent amongst the group.

Thank you. And your right, there is talent beyond my capabilities, that's for sure.

It took me a few days to figure out how to make the hand planes to go on my scratchbuilt HO scale benches for my engine and car shop. Luckily, I have some old ones I use and collect to replicate. I started out with some strips of the same tight grained mahogany I used for the bench tops, and sanded them down to the height of a scale 3.5 to 4", but smaller, (actual .030") on the width, as I was going to use some shavings from the wood side blanks for the plane sides. This bought it to the 3" or so width when finished. The shavings were left wider so as to be able to sand down when glued up. The plane blade is heavy duty aluminium foil, just the right scale for a 1/8" blade. I glued some extra shavings on the foil and cut to size, then glued in the slots. The handle was made from HO scale 1 x 4 styrene strip, carved with a file and sharp knife to get the contour, then painted a darker brown color (Vallejo paints) as it was handled a lot with dirty hands. I threw a few shavings of fresh wood in there for decoration.

Here's a reality check, this picture is twice the actual size of the model bench.

Tony,

Your work is plane amazing!

I have picked up several wood molding planes over the years. One I used regularly is a simple beading plane.

Mike and Rich, thank you.

You still thinking about those candy bars? You might need to get a few, Rich :-). Thanks for calling today. We left just afterwards to go to the lake. Just got back.

Mike, I have quite a few older planes, many are molding planes, some I don't use, no need for it, I just like having them hang around in the shop.
