Fascinating Juergen. I shamelessly stole photos of your engine to help detail mine when I get to it.

This is a FANTASTIC build.... And, like Pat, I downloaded EVERYTHING!!! You just put on a serious clinic for us "novice" modelers... Man, this is awesome.... At my best, I will never be able to add this much detail... I'll be satisfied with matching the weathering to cover up the mistakes... This baby is real nice, Man... REAL NICE!!!!

Amazing work, Jürgen, I would never have the patience nor the abilities to put so much detail into one kit !

  Juergen,

                There has been some really well built and well detailed dozers done over the years .

Bit on this one you have really raised the bar ! Your scratch building and level of detailing in outstanding .

This model is awesome .

    However as a retired Operator . I have to say I really wouldn't want to take that machine into a fire zone with the tracks sagging like that ! 🙂

But like some of the others I will be coming back to these photos for inspiration .

 

  Be Well

Thanks for posting all of the detailing pictures especially the engine plumbing as that is very difficult to find. Where did the rivet and bolt head come from?
