Scratch build Caterpillar 120b motor grader

Recommended Posts

Hello, here is another project that started with the pictures found in the internet. Even the tires had to be built from the zero. The scale is 1:25

The project is half made in resin, although my models are mainly built in tinplate

In this picture the tires are from the old project that I made years ago.

In this picture the tires are from the new project that I made this month.

keefr22, thank you very much;

TGA, thank you very much.

Making these models in tinplate is not difficult, but it surely consumes a lot of work to accomplish.

For I am not born under the English language, I antecipatedly ask anyone who may feel insulted or offended by any misused word by me to forgive me.

Superb work. Please tell more about your scratch building process like drawings, pattern, casting. How did you cast these tires resin or rubber??? Master for the tires?

Happy modelling,

Rishikesh

A spectacular accomplishment Ivan and beautiful execution. Where did you find detailed references for such an obscure project?

Please show us your other scratch-built projects.

I just love scratch built stuff.

Flippin' brilliant.

Now - blow us all away (even more than you already have done) with one in 1/12 or even 1/8 scale...

Roy.

busnproplinerfan, thank you very much,

I will take the picture that you want, but I am not sure that I can do that this week. For now, I will leave other pictures of the engine. So please tell if the pictures are enough.

Mickd, thank you very much.

Rishi, hank you very much,

On my website there are a lot of explanations on this. Rubber tires. I am translating the site, but I seldom have time to do that.

Codger, thank you very much,

I made a prototype with the pictures that I found on the internet.

As I said above, on my website there are a lot of explanations on this.

roymattblack, thank you very much,

I am sorry, but, at the moment, I am making these models only in 1:25 scale. The other projects are in 1:10 scale.

kpnuts, thank you very much.

Here are some other pictures. I hope that by the end of next week this Caterpillar will be ready.
