Hello all! I believe that this is my first build of a mid-to-large scale construction machine. I hope the pictures turned out OK; my photography setup has been a little improvised lately. Enjoy!
About this creation

Recently there has been road work going on near my home, so after school is finished I have been biking out to watch. The construction company's expertly driven bulldozer was the inspiration for me to try my hand at the Lego version. I thought about trying to model their John Deere 450D excavator; but decided that it would be too challenging for a quick build. But I still have to make one sometime!

The driver's setup. Cool leather seat, looks like he grabbed that from his Lambourghini :P

A shot of the operator's controls...

The dozer I watched didn't have all this stuff at the rear (too small to mount a ripper I think) but mine looks better with some technical-looking greebles slapped on the back. What doesn't? :)

Another shot of the back. Not sure why that got in here...

It could use a few pieces between the light grey road wheels I think...

Bird's eye view, always one of those :P

I really ran out of yellow pieces by the time I got to the plow. Acually I remember sitting back in my chair looking at it, and thinking to myself "Now that looks great, but something's missing." Then I realized I'd forgotten about the plow! I won't tell you what exactly I thought about my brainpower right then. Suffice it to say I felt like the time I built a really good jet fighter, and then realized I'd forgotten to build its wings... Yeah that's a true story...

When I got around to making the plow, I was able to make it angle properly, the same way the real one worked. The construction workers were awesome; they let you get quite close to the action (within reasonable bounds) as long as you used a bit of common sense about where they needed to have to themselves. Often I could get within five feet of the hole they were digging in without getting in anybody's way. It was quite interesting to watch them work.

Overall it was a fun build, and I really appreciated that I was able to see how the machines actually work. It really helped me to build the model well!

The publicity shot :)

Well thank you all for taking a look, and I look forward (as always) to hearing what you think about it.

God bless,

A very cute little (or should I say big?) machine! I like the way you made the treads and front, looks kinda old. Now wouldn't you know not far from my house there is a bulldozer just like this one rusting near the railway. I remembered walking past it and playing near it when I was little when I saw this. Thanks for a memory!

Nice bulldozer. The scoop has a wide range of motion. And the driver's cap and lower back are very detailed. Nice job.
