New Project....Barber-Greene Paver

Recommended Posts

Figured out what the next project will be.  It is going to be a Barber-Geeene paver.  Started gathering parts tonite. Of course, I started with the manuals!

Look forward to this project.  I have suggested to Revell and Italeri to offer a series of construction models of a Paver, Cold Planer and Roller.  

Dickie Toys of Germany offered very good 1/25 toys that could be scale models of these machines.

Great idea!  I only remember seeing them when I was a kid. By the mid-70s it seems Blaw Knox were taking over, and the tracked machines never gained traction here.  Haha see what I did there?

We had one of these where I used to work that was in the bone yard. We also had a couple of the Blaw Knox versions that got retired while I was there in favor of a brand new Cat model on rubber. Since I was able to find a good batch of manuals for it, figured I'd give it a go! If it turns out half as well as the crane did, I will be very pleased!

You sure aren't shy about tackling some interesting and different builds! Gonna watch this one like I did the crane, your skills are impressive.

I never worked on the paving crew so I don't have a solid knowledge of how these machines work. My only experience with them is repairing and refurbishing them. So......this project is going to be a HUGE learning experience! Started with the screed rear end support frames taken right from the parts book.  Main frame is partially done.  Big projects start out small!

I wouldn't have a snowball's chance in you know where of getting this done by August! This one is about ten times as complex as the crane I just finished..........it's gonna be a challenge! But I'll be following the BRBO and all the great work being done there!

I may have waited if I saw the tweaked rules, but the fact remains, I'd never be done in 7 months!

Like the song.

Here We Go Again this is already looking like it's going to be a 100 yard game.

If your crane is any indication this will be really great build don't forgetting add the hand held diesel sprayers.

Got the left side crawler frame all put together tonight.  Lots of scrap armor parts and some Evergreen strip and a passing replica!
