1/48 Caterpillar D-7
Posted by jeaton01 on Thursday, May 16, 2024 8:57 PM

Here's the D-7 from the same source as the grader.  I had to do some repair work on the hard nose and hood where the build was incomplete, thick CA and dental alginate were used for that.  Put some USN markings on it this time.

Looks great John.  So much detail in those 3d printed kits.

Thanks,

John

Jeaton01:

 Question, Where do you get the dental alginate? I can't seem to find a source. They insist I have to be a Dental Tech or Dentist office to be able to acquire it, remember I live in TEXAS! P.S. I like your little tractor and your superb taste in Planes! Great Scene!

Very nice indeed. So far it's looking like I'll need my suntan oil. I know this is about the caterpillar, but I've always liked the early WWII color scheme of the F4U Corsair in light blue.

Wow, so cool John! Thanks for putting her next to the paint bottle, otherwise my mind wasn't processing just how small the dozer actually is!

Thanks, all of you, and I'm sorry I am so slow saying so.

TB, I bought a bag of dental alginate on Amazon, it's probably a lifetime supply.  I think this is what I got, I put it in a different container and don't have the bag anymore.
