I was surfing the web when I came across this scale dozer build thread. This guy's fabrication skills are amazing. I can only imagine the time invested in the build.

Now that is one amazing build. Making every item from scratch is very old school. Every picture is even more impressive than the last one. Truely an amazing feet even for the skilled machinist. I wish I had the equipment to do things like that. He must have a nice machine shop in his house. Very nice thread. Thanks for sharing.

Words can't even begin to describe how awesome that thing is! The functioning scale fluid power system is especially impressive.

Someone email him and tell him he needs to go brushless on that thing...

Simply Amazing
His last post was in Aug 2010, wonder if he ever painted it, would like to see video of it moving on it's own power.


I retired from RC, now life is all about guns and long range shooting.

I think he should just build a small diesel for it.
That is just cool there.

I am completely speechless. Except for that sentence, and this one explaining it.

The patience that took to build that is truly a labor of love. Stunning, nothing more to say

I wonder how long it did take to machine all of those parts and then put it all together? That is nothing like putting our simple R/C puzzles together. We see very little personally fabbed parts in here. Nothing along that level anyway. That is something to share with the kids to see what one person can do if they put their mind to it. It looks like he had a lot of fun building that though.

Good point as to the time it must have taken. That build truly is a work of art

Did you notice all of his drawings - they were hand drawings. Very old school quality. Gotta have thousands of hours into that.

Almost guess that he is a current or former engineer at CAT.

Yea you got to love those old school builds. I wonder what his shop looks like? I bet he was using old school mills and lathes as well. Probably no CNC stuff. You rarely see anything of that quality using old school technics anymore. Not too many of those guys left in the industry now a days.
