Here are some new vehicles for the layout. They are all military vehicles re-purposed for civilian use.

Even though it's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, it seems to me that a few words might be appropriate.

I agree...some words please. Nice vechicles and that dozer looks like it could be "upscaled" into a nice 1:35 piece of equipment. Now, who makes the dozer?

Looks like the Tamiya 1:48 scale Japanese bulldozer to me:

Hi Clif :wave:

COOL rides ! :pimp:

The fire truck I am extra envious of !

The dozer came out real nice...
...and YELLOW !
The ONLY colour for creepy crawlies IMO ;)

I actually have one of those dozers Woodie.
In 1:35 it is possibly the size of a Caterpillar TEN.

I just gotta work out how to BASH a new seat for the driving dude ?
Mmm...

Top stuff Cliff !
Love that Austin as well.
Pops always had an Austin or two in bits everywhere, when I was a nipper !!

The dozer is from Tamiya. It could be up scaled very easily. I don't know if Tamiya offers the same kit in 1/35 scale. There are several bulldozers available in 1/35 scale from various manufactures. I believe on is "Dragon". I do a lot of shopping at two local Hobbytown stores. You can get a lot of kits that can be turned into civilian vehicles very easily. The down side is most of the kits are a little pricey. The upside is that all easily assembled, very detailed, and correctly scaled. Two of the vehicles, the fire truck and the fuel truck are Cezch kits. I consider myself very lucky in the sense that the Denver area has several very good hobby shops. Side note is that Caboose Hobbies is soon to be reopened under a new owner and in a new location.
