« Part 8: Operator side compartments 5130 shovel front-excavator etc. Part 9 of Photos and info on 1/8th scale model 5130 series Part 10: Continuation of boom info. »

This photo should have been in the last blog.. I found it a couple of days ago. This is the compartment on the left rear. The grill work needs screwed into the door frame. It was built one piece at a time. Custom built for the opening. I am enlarging the profile photo from the Cat pamphlet to get the arcs etc in the right places. I know the measurements between the pins so I blow up the image till I get the measurements that I need between the pins. When I get that point I have the side profile. Something came up. Will finish another day Sorry.
