Today I wanted to share some current projects. One for Westernstar10 and one for myself. I figured all the same paint will be used so why not make another machine.





My first cat shovel next to the one I'm working on.



Here's where I do all my model work and some of my beer drinking. The work bench.



That's all for now. Ill update the thread after I get the new shovel and Rob's road builder painted. Thanks for looking.

I would love to put double bar grousers on there but I didn't have any laying around to fit the 320 UC.
As for the tub grinder, yes, those things are solid gold don't cha' know.

As promised, here's today's update. I had to try out a set of Eric's tracks and they're awesome! The went right on the 320 UC with no modification needed and they look great!





I also picked up some HO scale 55 gallon drums that I think can pass quite nicely for 5 gallon buckets in 1/50.

Those 55 gallon drums do look like they make a good 5 gallon bucket. Just need some really fine wire for a handle.

Here's a little update. I finally got the two cat forest machines painted and ready for work.







In other news, I got a link-belt 250 from the ups guy today and I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed in it. That's all for now. Thanks for looking.

I like the addition of the axe and shovel to the boom of the road builder.

Thanks! I wanted to put them on the back of the cab but there's no room on the road builders.

It was finally sunny out so I decided to dust off the small dio and snap some pictures.









Two versions of this photo. I like the way it turned out.





That's all for now. Thanks for looking.

Well, I got some shots of the new dio and did some more work to the last 330 log loader I built. I wanted a one off model so that's what I did.

Dio shots







A photo of the hydraulic lines on the winch set.



Some finished photos of everything.









And the little drift carriage to run this summer.



I'm actually looking for suggestions on a better way to get the drums to turn without the huge ears on the outside. Thanks for looking.
