High track dozer was tricky and took longer than i expected it would to complete I just noticed i put the right rear tires on the scraper backwards after i posted this pic,
guess that goes on my list of things to correct later ….

I am a toy maker at heart and I really like what you have worked so hard on here. These types of projects are not easy and it takes time and alot of patience. Good Job and keep up the great work!

They look like Toys& Joys plans . I have made a lot of them and I have put a few wheels on ,Just like you did. It can be fixed real easy. They are also great sellers. Post some more.

I love these! How did you make the tracks on the dozers? Are the tracks strong enough to hold up to kids and do they ‘roll’ well?

Thanks Thepps, I spent a lot of time at the band saw making those, the tracks are pretty rugged, made them out of walnut. not sure how they would do kid tested but i think a lot of the other small parts would give out before the tracks did. they roll surprisingly well for wooden tracks.
