An elderly member of the Elks was lamenting that he never had a little
red wagon as a lad. Another member and I made this 1/5 scale for his
birthday. The logo was done by a local art business and a fine job they
did.

Yup, the real deal has 10" diameter wheels, and this scaled down has 2"
diameter wheels. All the other dimensions are also one fifth.

Really well done! Are the wheels turned or are they sto' bought?

They still make them. I bought one about 5 years ago to set in the
back yard and put plants in. The wheels looked smaller than the one I
had 65 years ago. Then I was at my mom's and there in the barn was my
old Radio Flyer turning into rust. The wheels were just like the new
one. Memory is not always reliable--at least mine isn't.

Well donem and very cool ... at some point, and the older I get, I would

Great. fun little project and nice paint job.
We had the Flexi also. You lay or sit on it, and it had brakes on the
front, low to the ground, like a sled except for pavement.
Also we made our own the skate board....a 2x4 with our steel skates attached
to the front and back.

Time seems to naturally make some things 1/5 scale :-(

Very cool! Now is it really authentic? Bent rusty nails for the handle
hinge pin and through the axle to hold the wheels in place?

Bailing wire for the hinge pin and wooden dowel for the axles.

=======================================
Neat.

Oh the memories.

When I worked in a hardware store while in high school, one of my jobs
was to assemble all the wheel barrows, lawn mowers and red wagons
so they could be placed on the sales floor.

I long ago lost count of how many I assembled, but it was a bunch.
