Here is another project I did of a Michigan 675 loader. There are only three of the real ones left in the world and only two of them still run. We drove down by Grand Rapids , Michigan and met the owner and spent 4 hours with him as he shared some cool stories. He actually bought and sold this machine three different times. He let me climb all over it but the batterys were dead so we could not drive it. The whole time I was building the model I thought of the afternoon with Russ . We took 60 pictures of it to help me build the model.

Another great build. I find it neat how you go out and find the real thing. Take a few pics and go back and build one.

Don

I am amazed at the quality of the models you build and how realistic they look.

Your work is excellent and I enjoy looking at all of the photos that you have posted.

Thank you for sharing.
