        I really appreciate this article. The Ford truck kit comes with a large piece that I couldn't figure out what it is for.

        It must be jig or something. Or maybe a wrong piece included in the kit.

        Anyway, thanks.

            Carl,

            What a great build thread. I have several of these Jordans, but certainly would like to see more (if there is more) of the jig that you built. Looks like there is more in the pictures you've provided. Is this Balsa that you're using, or pine, or ??

            Thanks,

            Horton M.

              Thanks for the compliment Horton.

              I took a new picture of both of my Jordan jigs. The original (bottom) jig is indeed a piece of scrap pine with about 9

              different axle/wheel set-ups.

              I also needed a jig for the horse and buggy and Brougham kits too, which is on a piece of thin balsa.

                These jigs are excellent, and may be necessary as I have a number of these kits to build. Thanks for the how-to.

                  Great build series, Carl. Somehow I missed it, back in the day!

                  A stash of Jordons is like gold these days.

                    You're welcome Cody. Glad to share.

                    Karl- No worries, I was surprised to see this thread return. I still have a bunch of these kits to build, I bought many in the early 2000's. Too bad no other manufacturer has picked up where these left off...
