I decided to start messing with this a little bit before the holidays. Doubt I will finish it any time soon but I wanted to work on something. It is the NewRay Excavator that came with a 1/32 scale Kenworth and lowboy. The excavator is perfect for 1/24 scale.

Not trying to be an arse, but how is it perfect for 1/24th scale?

It is over sized for the 1/32 truck it came with. But it is the same scale as my 1/24 scale trucks.

This is as far as I have made with it for now. I am hoping to get back on it after the new year. I will post updates when I do.

once all the cylinders are plumbed, this will be a detailed model. Looks good so-far

I put it back together for now. I have other projects going on and I didn't want to loose any of the screws to it. I will get back to it eventually.
