Oh man! Those are beautiful! How durable are they? I mean, can a young boy play with something like that?

Too bad the cat ate the Dozer. It looked great.

But the truck and low-boy still do.

Very Very Nice.
The high track dozer is a nice plan. The track looks a little tricky to build. Looks like you figured it out. Nice job my friend.

Tom (mot) wants to play with it but he is afraid he might be too young.

Amazing work as always, Toymaker!

Great work… I was a little afraid you were going to say that you made all of that with one 2×4 :)

Very cool!

I was going to ask what type of engine the truck has, but obviously it’s a cat-erpillar. <g>

Very cool! There are a couple of places around here (Pacific Northwest) that have some of these on display. I have always admired the craftsmanship in these projects. I love the detail! Do you use a plan or your own designs?
