I wanted to add to my construction equipment and also try my hand at making a scale model. The roller is aprox. 50 scale to a CAT CS54 made from oak and walnut, used copper wire fro the hand rails and mirror mounts. I turned the wheels and drum from gome light colored walnut and stained the wheels with rosewood stain to make them a little darker.

Nice! My nephew wood love this, but unfortunately destroy it as well. I looked at all the construction trucks you did, that’s quite an impressive collection.
