Bull Dozer High Gears

This is quite the build and I look at it as having 4 main parts.
The body.








The blade.








Riper



And the tracks which take just as much time as the rest of the build put together.
Dutchy helped me with the jig as I followed how he did his in one of his blogs.


I made a jig to hold the tracks together so they can be all cut at the same time and will all come out exactly the same.
















This was a very fun and challenging project.

Wow, that is a wonderful build, the tracks are over the top. Thanks for sharing and for a great write up. Toothpicks make great rods in the model.

Amazing!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

A beauty. I like that idea of sawing the tracks on a scrollsaw.

Dutchy I didn't cut them out on the scroll saw, I just put them together like a puzzle as it made for an interesting picture.
From the picture it does look like it could be done that way but It wouldn't make for very sharp edges I would think.

Great job, really like how you put a motor in there. I have made 3 of these models and never went that far,
Impressive project! It's fun to see this one.
i gotta say the talent of the model makers here is beyond words. i couldn't even imagine doing what you and others here do.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.
