"Pieces not numbered"

None of the pieces of the bulldozer are numbered. This looks like it might have been a defective set. Hopefully I can navigate my way through the instructions.

"Nice kit challenging with alot of detail"
mcintirekenneth
This is one of those kits that I'm glad I waited till I had ALOT of experience under my belt due to the unnumbered parts & sometimes vague instructions, I'm glad there alot of D8 pics online to use as references lol... Recommended for experienced builders..

"Fun kit!"
Tex Jester
2 in 1 - nuff said!! Lots of fun. Flashing was minimal; mold lines varied, but a bit of time and they were cleaned up. Note that both kits are molded in YELLOW. The trailer went together super-fast and square - but be careful or you can get it out of square pretty easy. • My frame rails (all four) were warped; some EASY bending got them straight - but one main rail broke. I was able to get it back together and reinforced. • One of the suspension mount crossmembers got broken at some point; it arrived broke. I was able to cobble a repair, and once painted, it wasn't visible. • The metal axles were nearly an inch too long - be sure and check them before installing. • The decking was replaced with basswood strips - use plain ol' Elmers wood glue on a brush to set the planks in place! The dozer was a challenge at some points. • The radiator and fan guard locations are vague at best - I did a lot of test fitting, and once glue was starting to set, I FINALLY got it set! • Mounting the drive/suspension assemblies was trying, to say the least. • The tracks go together very quickly, but be careful you don't break the little tabs. ** TIP ** The rocker pivot arm (or whatever they call it!) just sits in a slot under the engine. Nothing holds it in place, so when you pick up the finished kit, the arm cones out. If you put a bit of flat plastic over the pivot point, you can secure the arm. The end result is one of my best efforts! Pictures will have to wait until my next hometime and I get more paint - I ran out!
