This is my first model I built, actually did 2 at once. Gave one to my mate.
It is made mainly of Totara with kwila tracks

With the job you did and I’m thereby guessing the time it would have taken, hid have to be one helluva mate.

There’s something about making tracks that I love but thankfully when I made my excavator I made two sets of track so no need to go there for a while. lol
You bite off a big project for the first on but it came out great!!!

Thanks for the comment on the TD20, I want to make another set of tracks and thought I would make one of these, your models are all very nicely done, I take it Toys and Joys plans. Mine I just do from pictures and designs as I go along to make it look like something. The bulldozer is very easy to make, I like the way I make the tracks, very easy. Basic idea on the D8 post, but am going to do another description to make it even easier. Hope someone tries it.
