I just finished another high track dozer.
The tracks are Mahogany and the main body is Kauri, the cab and other dark timber is Walnut.
The model has been coated in tung oil.
This is a T & J model but I made the tracks a little different, the gripper is approx 1/16” wide mounted vertically and housed into the track link. I also added 4×3/32 dowels to each link as bolts. Making the tracks this way is very time consuming but in my opinion it is well worth the extra effort.

And here I was abusing you in another post for your absence…

That is another brilliant build by you Pj.

Nice mix of timbers… however, those tracks… wow… Mounted on the dozer looses its detail but those stand alone pictures have me looking forward to making tracks.

Starting with a new collection. As always also this one is a high quality build, made with almost machine precision. I love that tracks different but also thinking on the time that you had to put in all that holes. can I tempt you to make a buildblog one time in the future?

Well done Peter.

Hi Dutchy, I tried doing a blog but got stuck on the uploading of pictures. I used to use photobucket but they wanted money to continue so I gave up. Who do you use and how easy is it to set up?

Pj, here at LJ, you can upload directly into your project/blog.

Alternatively sign up to DropBox. They give you 250GB of clod storage for free. If you need more, then you will need to pay for the extra. If you recommend someone and they drop your name you get a bonus 250GB adde to your free quuota (hint,hint)!

A little late to the party but that sure is a beauty for sure!!!

To add to Ducky’s post.
Make a folder on your computer Bull Dozer [or what ever] Then add all the pictures there, this way the program will look there after you add the first picture to your post.
Then it’s make a comment add a picture for it, make another comment add the next picture, simple and quick.
Do them in order and you don’t get lost.
Works for my feeble brain any way.
