Looks great!  I like the mini-LA's used for the steering.  Nice job hiding the IR receivers too. :thumbup:

This thing looks huge. How big is it compared to 8265 wheel loader (I think that's the right set number....)

I think mine is smaller :grin:  but with many more pieces, it is narrower and has the same wheelbase but the wheels are larger than the 8265 wheels.
Any time is good for machinery Alasdair :laugh:  , thank you all for the comments.

Great work! The engine is one of my favorite features. You really captured the look of the WA-800.

Looks fantastic!
Do you have a link for higher resolution pictures? I am doing some redesigning of my swingloader (mainly trying to implement  steering via mini LA's), and am looking for some inspiration! :wink:

Everything is inside the machine but I rebuild the steering system I used for the pics. I didn´t have any room and after try some configurations I got this, the real machine has 2 l.a. for steering so I wanted 2 but if you don´t want complicate your life use only one, it will work better than with 2. For your machine you need any room you can get.

Thank you very much Jorge, that is exactly what I needed!
I used your geometry, but with a somewhat different setup:

Nice solution, I think if you don´t use the unimog portal axles and use the classic old system you will gain more room, I hate those pieces what a bad design in my opinion.
