Thought I would try something a little different for me this year, although I did start this a few months ago. Xmas and New Year down time helped me get it done.
This machine is a “Toys and Joys” plan.
The model is 15 1/2 inches long, 12 inches wide and stands 8 1/2 tall.
I reckon I must have been out of my mind when I decided to make it, but am quite happy with the end result.
The paint is a bit on the “Yellow” side but was all I could get.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
C and C welcome.

Bob.

Bob, that is beautiful. great build – You are right, it’s yellow. I think I would like to have seen a few black accents to break it up

Wow! What a magnificent machine Bob! When I saw your name on it I was a little puzzled it’s totally away from your usual work. So much detail makes me wonder if I could ever have the patience to make something that complicated! Great job!

As you indicated, it’s quite a switch from your previous projects, but it’s fun to try something new. Really nice work.

Great job!!!
This is not a simple project but love the way the tracks really get a chance to shine with the yellow back ground.
As you’ve found out the tracks are a project by them selves but when it’s done, you know you’ve built something special.

Great job Bob. It is a little different project than your norm but a beautiful one at that. I bet there were a few headaches.

I’m also one that is not overly fond of painting these type of models… the paint hides the fact that it’s timber and could be plastic underneath… it also mutes (potential) contrasting timber… but we all know better.

Nice job BobW... despite my comment on the paint, it does tie it in with the actual vehicle.

Paint or no paint, you can’t hide the great job on the tracks.

No offence taken, I agree that it looks really yellow. Thanks for the comments.
