D9 Bulldozer with Israeli Armour Pack by Vajraminiature

Post  Plushy on Wed Aug 05, 2009 3:24 am

Hi Everyone ,
Just spotted this on PMMS , Its the D9 Dozer with added Armour that the US army and Israeli Defence Force use . I Love this Big beastie cant wait to get one and build it . But judging by the amount of resin i dont think it will be cheap Crying or Very sad

Yeah!, sure, now that I have collected a few dozen megabytes of pictures to help scratchbuild one some little company feel the need to release one in resin affraid

That's one massive and impressive piece of machinery Shocked It look very well detailed and should be quite popular with IDF fans.

I wonder if someone will come out with the Slat armor package?

Richard, count your blessings....

You could have been two thirds of the way through your second attempt at scratchbuilding the thing when they released it!

Yeh, Richard....... and you could also be building and half way through this multi dollar kit and some plastic manufacturer will release at 3rd of the price!

Shocked

that's a massive bulldozer! the price is also massive - 199 US$! that's a lot of bucks!

the cast looks superb! how thick is the resin in the windows? will it be easy to cut out?

they supply clear plastic for all the windows and the resin is less than 1mm thick where the windows are so should be very easy to cut the resin out . Very Happy

Now THAT looks impressive. The only thing I would worry about is, it looks like you need a degree in engineering just to sort out all the hundred or so little parts in the plastic bags. Looking at it reminds me of when I used to operate these big boys back when I was younger, and dustier Razz .

Now I think we all want to see you start to glue pieces together so we can see how well it all fits Very Happy

The kit looks quite good. Are you going to build it soon? And if so, any chance you'll post some progress in the WIP forum?
