@goldneagle How much for a Deuce? I’d love to own a piece of your artwork!
Thank you for the compliment. Right now i am not building any for selling. Not sure it's cost effective since it takes me a week or more to build a model. That's 12 hours plus per day. They are approximately 16" to 21" long. I like the larger scale models. Here are a couple of non-military models I made out of hardwoods:

I got into scroll sawing about a year ago. (My retirement hobby) Somewhere along the line i decided to build some model cars out of wood just to add some variety to my scrolling. I ran into some cool plans for military vehicles. View attachment 880167View attachment 880168View attachment 880169View attachment 880170View attachment 880171View attachment 880172

Wow!!

That is really nice work.
Great looking paint jobs too.

You definitely have skills! If you have the time, it really might be worth your time to see what it might cost to sell a few. There is a LOT of detail there... There are some folks who would really like to have a small version of their truck. Yeah, it wouldn't be cheap but this looks pretty spectacular to me.

Thank you for the compliment. I really appreciate the feedback. You know they say anything is for sale at the right price. I'm thinking of doing an MRAP soon.

These are so cool. Always wanted to get into scroll work when my shop was still a woodshop and not full of metal working/ MV parts . Which saw are you using?

I made these for my kids years ago. I used my cheap craftsman scroll saw on several parts of these guns.

That's cool! I am using the DeWalt DW788 scroll saw. I am getting the top of the line saw tomorrow. It's a Pegas 21" scroll saw. Will be selling my DeWalt saw setup once I get the new saw set up.
