Nice work on your dozer and other models. I was attracted especially to your dozer as I made one of this type from pictures. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/214930

That’s a nice miniature bull dozer and with a lot of details. It’s very nice.

One heavy duty tool.
Nicely done.
I wish I had bought these plans before I made mine, there’s something about making tracks.
Now I remember it’s the work!!!

Hi Jim, don’t be afraid to have a go. The tracks are very time consuming, but if you make a jig for the band saw and another for drilling the holes for the dowels, you can do it.
