« Part 211: Ford van #2 Just about there Part 212 of Wooden Models series Part 213: Hi Track Dozer Building the treads »

Started playing with the Toys and Joys Hi Track Dozer-81 last week.
I had built one using the plans that the Wood Magazine sells which is a toy build but I mixed things up taking ideas from the pictures of the Toys and Joys Hi Track Dozer. Project post is here.
This was my first try at a true model build from plans, but even then I went off the reservation.

Here’s what I’ve got done so far.

I’ll get slowed way down once I start on the tracks but at least I can use some jigs for that.
I had thought that this dozer used the same treads as the smaller T&J Dozer and Excavator but they are some what different, fun is on it’s way. 😎

You all should have never showed me how to use these things. 😜

The tracks may slow you down a little but the bones of the project surely haven’t Bruce… great start.

Thanks all!!!
And Dutchy I just went and reread my blog on the Wood Magazine build and had forgotten how much you had helped and encouraged me on that build, that’s one of the great things about blogging your builds, you can go back later and be reminded of what you did right and wrong with a build, and head off some headaches.

Plans are a place to start FROM; not the destination!
