  8. Hey Harv Good luck on the surgery. I just had my cataract surgery on my eyes about two months ago. My optomoligest is the only one in Michigan that does the lazer surgery and he does lense replacement with corrected lense implants. I have worn glasses since I was around 11 years old, I will be 70 years old October 31st of this year. Well I had the surgery with the best lense implants and I don't need to wear glasses anymore, really weird, I only need some readers when I'm doing my models. The surgery was a piece of cake. So don't worry about it. Ron G
  9. Hey guys I found this model on the internet. It's a Cat D11!...BiiiG... It's a pretty good model, just needed some tweaking here and there. I had to replace the crappie simple tracks that it had. So I took my D8H tracks and up sized them to fit, now it looks proper. It actually has the engine modeled up in it. But it's just a sheet body not a real solid model, so I'm not sure if I can print it, we'll see. So here are some pictures for you to look at. she is definitely a BIG MOTHER! But it does fit on the 4 axle drop nose lowboy trailer, barely. side view of the D11. view

Hey all Here are some more pictures of the Cat D8H dozer. side view of the D8H. this view shows the body details and the blade all in preliminary status. this view shows the rear body details and tracks. this view shows the tracks a little better. this view shows the undercarriage detail in the preliminary stages. Well that's it for now be back with more soon. Ron G
