Update,
Been busy doing other things of late, and the break away has allowed me to re-focus on this build.
Have started work on the front lower hull where the dozer blade attaches (pic later) and the dozer blade itself.

This is the carcass of the blade, the cross pieces are there to support the curved part of the blade itself and not for alighnment or strength.

This is the rear under the early stages of construction...

... and here is the ally sheet ready to be added...
Cheers, Mike.

Hi Mike
A happy new year to you and yours - lets face it it has got to be better than the one just gone by.
As for your modelling - just so skilled. Really impressive scratch building. It all looks very neat and sorted.
Jim
