 Just a little something I've been working on in my spare time .  It's an old Tom Daniel Snap Kit that got a complete make over !

 

And before anyone asks ,  John Deere did make bulldozers out of their tractors and called them " Crawlers " .

It started as a Tom Daniel " Boss Bulldozer " snap kit I found on ebay .  It's from 1972 and as far as I know it's never been reissued .   When I got it there were a few pieces missing and broken .  I made those and added Hemi cylinder heads and valve covers from my parts box .

 

Here's what it looked like when I got it .

Thanks Bob. I have never seen that kit before.


I have a John Deere 430 on the bench that is going to get a V-8, maybe a Hemi.

Nice job, I was never to impressed with the model in stock form but it looks fantastic with your improvements.  Oh and it does look like pure fun--thanks for posting.  Clancy
