A lot of T and J projects today. And you are not showing one but a complete serie. I like the dozer (and the others also) and I’m glad you succeeded with the tracks. Well done!

Way cool Hunter turned out so nice!!!
It’s funny I was just looking at pulling the trigger on that set of plans today, I already have the tracks made they’re just like the excavators and I made two sets when I built it so may just have to go back and push the button. LOL

Really looks fine on the low boy and that Bob Cat looks sweet sitting there too.

This is a beautiful model and is a wonderful project that exhibits a lot of fine details and excellent craftsmanship.

That is one really nice model, looks great on the low loader as well. Keep up the excellent work. Is the finish oil and if so does it bind the tracks? I have been a little scared of oiling my tracks as I think they might stick together.

G’Day Tony, I’m always amazing and take my hat off to blokes who make up a crawler track, especially one that looks as good as this on sir…top job.

The final photos of the semi, dropdeck trailer with the dozer & bobcat is just magnificent….love it!!
