Nice jobApplause Love that extending undercarriage,did you have to completely rebuild that,or was it just an add-on,to the existing fixing?I intend to make a similar mechanism.

Thanks for the comments everyone. This project darn near killed me! (Should say my wife darn near killed me.l think she learned some new words!) Thanks Ken. Wished I could have given him better quality pictures. Ken found the long boom and provided the stick. Both Ken and Greg Ferguson really helped with advice. On the undercarriage, l cut the track frames away from the car body with a Dremel saw. Put square brass tubing in and aluminum square for the retractable part. Mike

Wonderful looking model there. Those hydraulics are so crisp and realistic - totally worth the wife getting a bit narky!

I am very impressed with your build. I have tried to create my own hydraulic lines and connections to a Cat 365 excavator but nothing came out well. I am very, very impressed how well your lines came out.
