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 vehicles, 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 one 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 were 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.

Some models are from Unimodels.

I believe these are Ford models, built in the old Russia.


The first is an Opel Blitz, Tamiya did one, and Italeri also.


This one is from Italeri, I made a flat bed from it.

 








Tamiya made also a nice staff car,

it's a Ford.

Nice looking.
 

They give me ideas,

especially the flatbed.

I've been building a New Zealand forest fire engine,
that were built after WW2, on ex-Army armoured chassis.


The model started as 1/48 Tamiya Humber armoured car.

The first change to the kit.





And final.
