I was impressed with this kit, it looks great on the trailer!I would love to see more construction models 1/25th scale there is not a huge choice.The only problem is with the tracks they don't connect very well.

"A kit with excellent results"
Bill Z. (Forsyth, GA)
Round 2/AMT did not mark this kit carton with a suggested skill level; it should be Level 3 or higher. This is a very challenging kit, but one that results in an excellent model. Some tips: follow the directions IN EXACT ORDER. Do a limited number of parts and allow the glue to dry and cure before moving on. The track is molded in a color very similar to M/M steel; DO NOT paint it as you may restrict or eliminate the movement of the 88 pieces. The model is molded in yellow plastic--a shade very close to Caterpillar. There are no decals stating Caterpillar (they did not get trademark rights for that) but I went on the internet, found logos, and made my own. This is an excellent kit and I highly recommend it. It has over 385 parts and you will use all of them. I have photos of this model as part of a semi-truck/trailer unit. See my photo gallery.

 
"A Well Used Construction Dozer"
pcm1977 (Ohio)
I started with the intentions of making this dozer into a well-used machine. I have an AMT lowboy and a Mack DM600 I am going to pair with this kit. I did not have many issues with this kit. The only real issues I had with this kit was the fit of the turbo to the rest of the engine. I am unsure if it was the way I put it together or simply poor fit, but I had to make a pipe to finish the connection. I believe that it might have also affected the fit of the holes in the hood for the exhaust and air intake. The other issue that made this build a bit hard was the small pegs that fit each of the tracks together. Some of these broke off as I was fitting them together which required some of the tracks to be glued together. The most frustrating thing about this kit was the part numbers are listed on the back of the box, not in the spurs like other kits. This required a lot of cross referencing from the instructions to the box and back again. Overall this kit was a fun build and full of details.

 
"Nice but be wary"
alex295
The kit is actually quite nice and represents a Cat D8 Bulldozer. The indies tracks literally pop together. The wary bits...the parts aren't numbered so you'll have to check the parts map on the bottom of the box. Instructions can be a bit vague at times. Paint callouts are minimal. It's a Cat so yellow is the norm for just about every thing. You should Google some Cat D8 pics for for details such as the engine. Lastly, the blade sub assemblies can be a bit fiddly. On a personal gripe, the dozer's front is represented by a decal to show the grill. The kit actually has a nice rad and fan. I cut my kit's grill out and fabbed up a rudimentary grill guard using styryne strips and rod. Google had a variety of grills, some looked like field mods by operators. All that said, I'd definitely recommend this kit. For a kit that originally released in 1972 it really really builds up well. There's not a whole lot of 1/25 construction vehicles. The price is pretty good.
