Here is the high track dozer I built from a Toys and Joys plan. I used northern white hard maple in this build. I used black walnut for the seat and makore for the track pads. Generally I use cherry for the tracks but I had some thin makore so I decided to go with that for this one. I finish my models with a clear finish and really like the way the tracks on this one popped out when I finished this one. This build kicked my butt more than once, as a result I will need to visit the confessional an added time during this Lenten season!

That’s an awesome piece! I bet that’s satisfying to finish. I was wondering: do the toys and joys plans for different machines at the same scale share identical pieces (tread links for example), or is it a slightly different length and width for each model? Like, do you have to work out a new batching technique or jig every time?

Great project!!! Yes they are all just a little bit different for looks
but could be used for both with adjustments made to the plans I would think.
