This is my second High Track Dozer, this one using the Toys and joys plans.
The blog is here.

Go to the bottom of the page for up dated pictures.

My first ever model build with plans was the Wood Magazines High Gear Dozer but it is plans for a child’s toy and after getting the plans I saw the Toys and Joys version so added some of the details from the pictures and was able to make a fairly close copy but there were no tracks in this version so I’ve always wanted to build another one all tracked up.
Here’s the Wood Mag Version I built..

and the T&J version.

Thanks guys!!!
But I must add my patience is not limitless or I would have built the scraper [plow] that goes along with the project but at the end I had, had enough of this dozer. 😖
