Recommended Posts

  • 4 weeks later...

I almost finished the construction of the model. remains to make the muffler brakets and ask the fittings in the tanks has air. To make the tanks I used a wood rod 7/16. Initially I did a 100 gallon fuel tank but I found that it appeared one may long for a tractor.I made an another 120 gallon tank. Now I'll make the hinge for the Hood adjustments and paint. I also set up my C 15 engine but I lack of references for a three turbos. I have found a CAT for references.

I have to make changes on the angles of the turbos for the installation of the C15. I have not completed the weathering of the engine it is one preliminary. Looking at the pictures I noticed that i lack finishing on workpieces in particular. You contact that I painted it matte, I do not like the glossy and I won't look like new.

.The first part of the air system is completed, still painting large hoses of the brakes and the differential valves. It remains for me now to do a dozen other fitting for a air tanks.

I just received the final pieces for my CAT 660. After months of work looking at this work of art that Dave has done with the dashboard. I very enjoy doing this project with Dave is a guy very honnetre and speech. After all the shots below the table that it is done in the designer I was hesitant a associate myself with one another to make this project. I did esiterai not a redo it again with him.
