Toy Restoration of a 1960s Scissor Lift Airport Truck
As a young aerospace/aviation nerd, I would’ve killed for this 1960s Structo scissor lift airport truck.
Another restoration video tagged as ASMR. I guess that’s a trend in YouTube making vids these days.
As much as I liked the toy, and the restoration, I think it’s kind of cheating not to show every aspect of the restoration process. Where did the plastic parts come from? Is that the original windshield? Did he make that replacement decal or get that from a vendor? We want to see all of the steps (or at least know how they were accomplished).
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.

Coincidentally I’ve been watching series of videos like these lately, too. I can’t tell if it’s one person with several names or a couple people with the same style and tools. But the toys all appear to be from the "Metalcraft" company. A search for "metalcraft toys" or "metalcraft decals" turns up a not-insignificant market in replacement parts and decals. There must be enough interest in them to support a decent level of after-market fabrication.
