AMT Construction Bulldozer

Recommended Posts

I don't know where else to post this one, but eventually the dozer will will be chained to a lowboy and towed around by a Mack DM600, plus this forum seems to be the location of others talking about this kit.

I wanted to go with a very used dozer.  The thought behind this was that the guy would have bought a yellow Cat a while back and painted to to match the color of the company truck and trailer.  The dozer was a fun build and I hopefully did not spend too much time weathering it.  This was my first time rusting and such to a model.

That looks great, a really fine piece of work, the hole in the radiator mesh is really convincing and the weathering and paint job is spot on, a really top job!!!

That looks great.  It looks like it's been out west fighting fires.

Looks like a hard working/well used bulldozer should look like.

Yes it does! Great work!

Thank you everyone, I hope that my entire idea with an old beat up DM600 and lowboy works out.

Thank you all for the kind words.  I was hoping to enter it in a show and see how it does once I get the DM600 done.

Awesome build.  Just received the DM600 from Hobby Lobby today (40% off and free shipping).  Waiting for this same dozer I found on eBay bundled with the AMT lowboy.  Note that the lowboys are getting impossible to find and the eBayers are starting to price gouge.
