I think I may have more pics. I will be going by it next Monday and Wednesday. If it isn't buried in snow, I'll try to get a closer look. I can probably email the owner too. I'll see what I can do.

We have LOTS of snow up here now and more on the way. I'm not sure how much snow they have down there... (Elko, NV is where the machine is)

OK they are not 60's, but two more 1/35 scale kits which may be of interest. Both are D-7s. JUst glad they were not
1/48th, or I would have yet another project to do <G>.
Miniart
D7 or D7N(winch)
#35174

Mirror
D7
#35850

Hi Ken.

I was lucky enough to get something good for Christmas...
...not just socks & DIY tools !



Here my fearless 1:32 slotcar driver checks out the Caterpillar D7 !

He's not that happy with the fuel-consumption, at about 1 mile per gallon !
The 'turning left' driving style he's used to, is hard to get right with the Cat.
His Chevy Impala is not going back to the dealer just yet...
...he says the D7 will never catch on in NASCAR !

- - - - - - -

Santa dropped the Mirror Models #35853 version down the chimney.

Sans cable-lift dozer-blade ... but with spify extra resin front-winch...
...cigar-lighter, Blaupunkt stereo & air-bag.

Si.

Nicely painted & weathered Si. Now how about a SLOT driven 'dozer ? Should cure your under/over steer problems !

As I said, just glad they are not 1/48th scale, they sure
look impressive though. No layout related goodies for me this past XMAS, just the complete Mrs Brown's Boys on DVD, need to find time to watch them now.

Thanks! Seems to be out of production, so I'll just have to keep an eye out for them on ebay.

An earlier Cat would be even better, but beggars can't be choosers. :)
