Best source might be a 1/32 slot car body.  Scalextric do a Ford Falcon Hardtop which would be suitable (if a bit Mad Maxy).


Scalex also do a 1970s Holden Torana, but not sure if the body's available without the slot bits.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

Nice build Fred  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Only comment I'd make is that Dozer loads like that around here, are usually loaded reversed on with the blade lying on the hump.

Thanks folks.

Dizz, thanks.  It's an idea.

Nice build Fred  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

When I was working in earthmoving we loaded them blade first.  But they were the smaller D6's.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Yeah, you're right on that count. I was looking at how your dozer was sitting on it's sprocket ends and not flat on the deck which reminded me on how they do it here.

Thanks Brad C.
There's a box of beers on the back seat as well.

 ;D   Naturally!!!    This has been a fun diversion re-visiting this build and seeing the nice new edition. Sitting together..... it really drives home the point of how large that D9 is. The area and profile of the blade is bigger than the pickup!!  :o    Or close? Certainly looks taller and nearly as long.

Great stuff.  :thumbsup:

I was hoping that they’d do a standard cab version of the dozer to go along
with the ‘killdozer’. No such luck.

A standard D9 would be nice.
