I bought plans for this but added a few details of my own such as the opening hood, motor and doors.
I have made quite a few more such as graders, backhoes, loaders etc but they are just prototypes and not worth showing.
When I make the real ones I will post some pics of them.

I live down the road from two mills. Your model would be a real hit with the truckers hauling logs. Beautiful model with great attention to detail. Load her up :-)
