Hey guys 

  Here are some pictures of the Cat D8H I'm doing on Unigraphics NX11.  I have access to  UG while my wife is working at home for FCA (Chrysler). So I've been working on the computer instead of my work bench and I'm trying to get everything done before she has to go back to work at the Tech Center. So here they are.

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.
