    These are very nicely done, and I love the jig idea. I need to build one....


    I echo Pete's comments.

      Excellent job, fortunately for me these predate Wrecker’s. Phew that was close.

          Carl,

          Great jig. What is the size of the square stock you use?

            Thank you Pete, Bruce, Frank, George and Jeff !

            Nice way to dodge the bullet Frank.

            Glad you all liked the jig. Jeff, the square stock is 3/16th."

              Many thanks, Carl. Would a similar jig work for wagons?

                You're welcome Jeff.

                I have never built any Jordan wagons.(Assuming you mean the horse and buggy type)

                But you could apply the same "jig" principle to them with larger square stock.

                  Carl, I've been quietly watching this thread, and I've got to say, that I love that Jordan Jig idea!

                    Of course you were Greg...and I guess you could now say: "the JIG is up"!

                      The jig is inspiring. I have a Jordan waiting for wheels - a jig is in my future.

                        Plastic models were the thing when I was a kid. And yes, they required patience,a steady hand and the ability to be sparing with the glue. I can remember being banished from a friends house for doing a poor job of applying glue to one of his models. I was devastated. Thanks for the Idea's Carl.

                          Hi Joe, thanks. I'm glad the jig has inspired you to complete that vehicle.

                          Time to get building!

                          Mike, you're welcome. I remember the "plastic model glue" in a tube....stringy nasty stuff ! [:-hypnotized]

                            Great job, Carl!

                            I like the jig. I'll have to rig one up for my Jordan vehicles. I have quite a few in my "kits to be built" stash.

                              Any other Jordan projects on the horizon, Carl?

                                Jeff B- Thanks, good to hear from you! Build yourself a jig and let those guys out of their little white box!

                                Jeff S- As a matter of fact I have built three more...two tank trucks were in the last shot I posted in the background. I also built the small Model A pickup truck.

                                I build Jordans in batches-as many as I can at one time- to re-load my inventory of vehicles to have ready to place on a finished dio.

                                No construction "at the bench" pics were taken of those...I'm not sure anyone would want to see another thread about building a different model.

                                On another note- I have been thinking about an improvement I can make on the jig itself...

                                Something to ponder....[:-headache]
