I have not posted anything for a while ; I have been busy building this.
T&J plan with a few small minor changes , one example being that I curved a slice of timber for the mudguards rather than cut them out of a block.
and tyres made from 2 pieces of wood not 3 is another difference.

A thing of beauty! Nice work on the fenders!
I didn’t realize the plans called for three pieces on the tires… was the third piece the flat spot in the middle?

Nice work Garry. Any hints/details for the curving?

I didn t realize the plans called for three pieces on the tires… was the third piece the flat spot in the middle?

- Underdog

To think I imported the model into SketchUp and I din’t remember the three parts… had to go back and check.

Great job Mate. There sure is a lot of detail in that loader.
Thanks for sharing your work.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
