    How is it off topic when it is in open discussion and it is your thread topic to begin with?

    Have you been drinking JC's kool-aid?

      Pretty damn cool!


      That took some serious work to make it that realistic.


      Now all he needs is the black smoke bellowing out of the stack, and the sound of the diesel motor, not that damn dog yapping.

        Are you implying something?
        That's pretty cool. If he really made it from scratch I can't help thinking it to be a Kaczynski type obsession.

          What am I missing?

            He makes it work with an air coupling.

              Watching the video, I didn't pick up on the fact that it is a remote controlled and scaled down model. I found a Forum where the guy who made it talked a bit to some other enthusiasts. I think he said it took about two and a half years to complete. I'd like to know what kind of materials he used? Can it be the same as a real dozer? How would he forge or machine all those parts? Mindblowing accomplishment, even if it was from a kit which it is not.

                    I will watch out, but I don't know what they are

                    Rick kept waiting for a big hand to pick up the bulldozer in the end.

                      If you have time, really look into the work this guy did on the linked forums. It really is amazing how much detail he put in and is still humble & sometimes critical of the work.

                      Had some outside things scheduled today. Rainout.

                      If we had these my Pops & I would be playing with them.

                          Funny, I've been accused of drinking Kool-Aid recently.

                          I've got to start making my own to distribute.
