Here's another Cat. SIXTY option for 1:35 ers...

...if you can find it.

Unfortunately, I can't.

Probably long since out of production.

If anyone sees one someplace; please P.M. me the details.

Cheers.

Si.

:bang: " You think I'd do it like this if I had a SIXTY ?! " :thumb:

My Wife's dad worked for Letourneau in Vicksburg MS back in the day.  I never met him but have a few of his items from when he worked there.  My wife was always talking about a Tournapull, come to find out there's a 1/50 model of one:

Now there (with a real one!) is the way to move dirt!

Dwayne--see what other people use instead of a shovel and wheelbarrow?

Hi dirty crawler fans !

Have been browsing through some old 'Narrow Gauge & Shortline Gazette' magazines.

Just came across quite a nice couple of articles.

From Harry Brunk's 'Up Clear Creek on The Narrow Gauge' series.

Part 57: The Caterpillar Connection (July/August 1989)
&
Part 58: The Caterpillar Connection, Part 2 (September/October 1989)

Cheers.

Si.

SIXTYs ROCK !!

Hi tractor fans !

Hope you haven't 'dozzed' off, since the last post !!!

:y:

As well as my favorite Cat. SIXTY, I have been looking around a bit, for other cool kits.

I'm going to have to put a little note at the start of the thread methinks...
...saying something like " & just about any other crawley thing as well ".

So...
...it's 'open season' around these here parts, on DOZER DIVERSITY !!!
A good thing too, if you ask me !

With any silly ideas of 'off topicness' out the window...
...please feel free peoples, to post ANY cool stuff, about ANY cool dozers.

There doesn't seem to be many/any ? dozer threads on Freerails...
...so hear goes with another dose of dozeing !

:2t:

I know that 1:35 kits aint most railroaders cuppa char...
...but, 1:48 could be a popular dozer for all you 1/4" dudes out there.

I ended up looking at this one...
...as in 1:35 scale, this could be quite a nice 'baby dozer'...
...new seat & new figure; pretty much job done !
(my kinda project !)



These were used in The Pacific during WWII.
U.S. Forces also used captured ones I believe.
Yer never know; one or two MIGHT have even ended up at a Pacific-coast logging operation in the U.S. ?

Probably not 'on the radar' of 1/4" railroaders.
Tamiya I think make this to go with their 1:48 planes & support vehicles etc.

This kit is very cheap, has very few parts (due to clever new moulding technology)...
...but looks to have pretty nice detail & seems 'a natural' for bashers & modders !

:!:

" GET  THAT  DAMN  RUNWAY  FLATTENED  SOLDIER ...
... THIS  AINT  A  SUMMER  SCHOOL  VACATION  !!!  "

" YESIR !!! " :Salute:

Si.
