Takom 1:72 M1070 w/M1000 w/D9R Bulldozer Part II
Completed the dozer for this awesome Takom kit. Despite the apparent complexity, the parts count was actually modest thanks to good parts engineering. The driver’s compartment is well appointed for its scale but is only visible if you left a door open. The principle challenge here was the unfamiliarity of assembling the dozer blade mechanism. It was tricky deciding how far to go with painting and weathering before finally assembly. I painted the main body w/compartment, track assemblies, back hoe and blade part separately along with much of the weathering. Final weathering was done after final assembly. I painted with AK and weathered with various pigments.
Part III — the full Monty — coming soon.
