If you built a grader, you must make it come alive with these add-ons and mods.
This model has the markings of a Champion 720, but it’s really modeled after a Cat 120H.
A must for road work. Wheels turn and go up and down, the blade turns and goes up and down and tilts.
With the attachment plan, you can add the front attachment mount with piston, the V Plow and Scarifier
and Adjustable side plow. The main Sliding blade modification. the rear Ripper.
Make the front wheel turn and tilt. The specifications are all part of the attachment plan separately.
One of many new projects that can be built in different scales, this one is 1/32” scale. Due to limited access to my workshop I resorted to reducing the scale in order to build these monsters on my kitchen table.

Theres astory behind this, i sent the picture of the grader on my street to my sister. her grand son 4 yrs old wanted to see a grader. When he saw the picture he made a disapointed comment that this was not the real thing. She wandered why he would say that and he soon pointed out that there was no driver. Goes to show you that kids are more attentive than most of us oldies.

That is a very nice model…I just cannot imagine working in 1/32 scale….... I have troubles with 1/12.
