« Part 203: Excavator More tread parts #2 1/2 Part 204 of Toy Construction series Part 205: Excavator Made some more parts and sand, sand, sand »

Haven’t been gluing the big parts together in case I need a redo but coming along as I spit and sputter around.

The base is not glued or bolted down so thing are put in place but top heavy so just placed for a have look.

Went easy on myself and didn’t put as much shaping to the body but as I think I said earlier the building of the tracks was my main reason for building this so with that done going off the plans for some things.

Darkmyble I’m glad this is helpful as I’ve not been up to taking many pictures and adding any extra tips.

These projects always amaze me. I do not have even 10% of the patience or skill to do something on that detailed level.

To me this is looking very good Bruce, despite the time consuming tracks I hope you will be glad with the final build.

My heath is what is slowing me down, so much pain when I get up but the thoughts of getting in the shop and playing with my toy’s helps get me there some time in the day.

Now a days we need all the positive in put we can get with all the sad things going on in our lives.
