How did you do that? Excellent work again. It looks about right for a CAT 627 or 631 scraper. Have any plans of casting this one? ;)
Yes I do. I am a CAT aficionado through and through. I have long planned to scratch a CAT 631B and have all the necessary photos to do it. I have some key dimensions for it as well, and I figured I'd scale the rest from the photos. I know the wheel hub is 3.5' across, and the tread is a dead ringer for a scraper tire, so you definitely caught my interest with this one!
