As a collector of toy trucks, especially wreckers, big rigs and old trucks, That is beautiful. The man is very talented. I would love to see it up close some day. Seeing that you all are in the great state of Wisconsin, I just may do that someday. My favorite state other than the state I'm in (the state of misery). lol laugh.gif   Most wooden mini's I have seen don't have the detail and the opening hood and doors etc. The detail is exceptional. Very nice.

There is certainly quite a few hours in that one. It must be worth more a $1000.00 likely bring nearly $500.00 at an auction. But I am sure it is priceless to you dad, yourself and the company as a whole. BA has a really nice model in there lobby, but this one may even exceed it.

I wish all you guys could see it in person its really amazing, he has 196 hours in to this one, we are going to put this in a glass case in the office

Wow, am I way off. Factoring in the hours on this project the value would be from $2000.00 to $4000.00. Sadly this is why not many of this quality are created by wood artists. Generally something like this would be a commission piece. It should be in a sealed case.



That model is the best piece of art I have seen in all my years, it needs to go to the Tow Shows! ALOHA from HAWAII !!

That is amazing. He must have studied your truck for quite a while to get it right down to the last detail. It is really cool how the boom slides and underlift comes off just like the real thing.

wow, that is really detailed.


Niemans Towing r53_1559570274.gif said:

He took lots of pictures everytime he builds one he adds so much more detail to them





towman33 said:

That is truly amazing!! Are you guy's going to paint it to match the real one ?


builder2 said:

that folks is a artist! simply beautiful


Niemans Towing r53_1559570274.gif said:

We are not going to paint it because it would hide the quality workman ship and detail


There is 16 hours just to build the wheels.

very nice indeed !! Priceless !!!


TowZone said:

To paint a masterpiece such as this one would only destroy the value and be disrespectful of the artist. It would be like placing a masterpiece in a dollar store frame.

Please tell me he etched his name or initials on the bottom someplace.

That is amazing! I didn't know your dad had any friends..... just kidding. I'll be sure to stop by and have a look at that in person.


Niemans Towing r53_1559570274.gif said:

He put his name on the frame and on the bottom of the wrecker body, thank you everyone for looking at this
