Just completed the restoration of the Nylint Tournahauler. The originals were available in yellow for only a very short time, and thus high-quality yellow originals are very rare, and expensive when available. So, I decided I would restore one in yellow, instead.
Also, the red and yellow custom HOUGH PAYDOZER. The Hough Manufacturing Company was well-known for their Payloaders, but you may not know they also built some Paydozers. However, to the best of my knowledge, all their Paydozers were four-wheel-drive rubber tired dozers, not built with tracks. But, they absolutely built a tracked Payloader, also model'd by Nylint, so the undercarriage and tracks were available to Hough.
I like the set - I think the Paydozer looks as though Nylint could have produced it. The rollbar is totally custom having been cut from a single sheet of metal and bent & formed into the rollbar shape. The decals were custom-made for me by Richard Biskner.
Enjoy - James
