I bought two of these new Meng Cat D9R dozer kits as I wanto build one as is from the box to use as a load on my Hobby Boss M1070 transporter kit and the other I am turning back into a regular D9R dozer. In progress pics can be seen here:http://public.fotki.com/lotso/meng-cat-d9r-dozer-/?cmd=manualsort

I have plans in the same direction. I already have the M1070 transporter but did not get the dozer yet. I might try to convert the dozer to 1:24/25....

Hi Hessel, yes, please convert it to 1/25-1/24! That would save me from having too (if you had it cast into resin). That is what I had planned to do when all the parts are finished on this1/35 version.

Ben this is great your scratch building is right on. If some one makes a 1/25 resin kit I would be in for at least one or more.

Thanks! I'm trying to get someone to cast these parts for me. If someone does, I'll let you know.

Very interested in buying one, if the price is right. Have you started on the 1/24 conversion yet? BTE, I wanted to do the same as you by converting the D8 into a civilian version but I rarely hae the time.
