Scratch built this excavater for our son’s 2nd birthday to go with the the prime mover and lowloader from his first birthday. Tracks move and have a tensioner set up. All rams are hand planned aa I don’t have a lathe most built with hand tools. It is modeled off a 50 ton cat and is a 1-10 scale. Built from nz kauri reclaimed from a 100 year old villa. Thanks for looking
