Project Information

I have just finished my third Hi track Dozer, this time with a few more modifications.
This time I have tried to make the inside of the cab more realistic like a Cat D 9R with offset pedals, air con vents and appropriate control levers.
The exhaust now has an operating flap that requires a steady hand to make.
The blade now has an extension to the top with the associated framework to hold it there.
Lights have now been installed atop the blade lifting hydraulic rams.
Cabin doors now open and shut with the locking mechanism in a gusset at the bottom of the doors. The handles are non working because the door frames are to small and angled so as to make it impossible to do.
The track grippers are housed into the track segments and all the axle pegs are recessed into the wheels and wheel carriers.
The drive gear hubs now have a row of dowel (bolts) around the perimeter to look more realistic.
Blade tilt hydraulic rams now have a hexagonal end piece to look more like the real thing.
Main timber used is NZ Kauri, Walnut and Mahogany tracks. Interior is Holly and rippers and minor parts are Cherry.
This one is for me until someone makes me an offer I can't refuse.

As close to perfection as one can get. The level of thinking here necessary to plan out a build like this is beyond my grasp. WOW!

Beautiful work, love the detail. Detail is my downfall, I love it but it makes for a lot of extra work. But when your project is finished the extra work is worth it..
