    This is one of my more-ambitious projects. The EUCLID Heavy-Equipment Manufacturing Company built a dual-engine TC-12 Bulldozer from 1958 to 1966. Here is a video of an original working...

    I wanted to build one similar, but unfortunately no toy manufacturer built large 1/16th scale Euclid dozers, so I built one out of two Nylint Bulldozers. I'm happy with the end result, even having a friend make me unique decals for the Nylint # 8400 Dozer. (original Nylint toy dozers were numbered Model 4200)

    It's huge and heavy, but I think it would push a lot of dirt with it's ultra-wide blade and double-width tracks.

      nice work, fixing/customizing/restoring toys is way more fun than just buying them!

      Now that is thinking outside the box. I have the Corgi 1/50? scale Euclid twin engine model and an Oliver twin 1/16 but never thought about making one like this.
      Awesome build.
