Looking to make a few CAT 621G scrapers, and was wondering if a 1/70 CAT 631 bowl/rear would scale out and work as a 1/50 621 bowl/rear?
Thanks for any help!

I would use the rear end from an Arpra 621R myself. or a modified NZG 627 as the rear wheel connection is correct. But you need to fill in the hole where the engine was. The NZG should be pretty reasonable on Ebay if you shop around there are usually some parts models if you look hard. The arpra would be more expensive but less fill in work at the rear end. You could use the 621k, but that is expensive donor model.

I would 2nd the NZG 627’s. You might get lucky and find a deal on some of the Tonkin 621’s sometimes they go for cheap but not all of that often.
