This skidder is made out of black walnut and big leaf maple (sawmill scraps I get at work). I spent about 120 hours on this project just trying to get all the detail in. This is my third model I have made, each getting more and more detail.

That’s incredible. The tires even look a little dirty.

One can see the 120hrs of time & effort with attention to detail.
The timbers look great and well done on the recycling of offcuts.
Top job.
Cheers, crowie
