Recommended Posts

Very unhappy with the 42028 tracked dozer, it was planned to make some modifications to let it look like the Iconic Caterpillar D11.

But unfortunately every dimension of 42028 seems to be wrong and it became a moc. Because there are only two types of wide tracks available and the bigger ones need larger sprocket gears than available, i have chosen the old and small wide tracks. This results surprisingly in a nearly exact minifig scale of 1:30 -1:32.

the fake engine looks even in 42028 much to large so i have skipped it and added a adjustable tooth at the back

The Bogie suspension of the Caterpillar D11 is working in minifig scale too

the shield in front of my D11 is mostly from 42028 because i have not had a better idea for it.

Looks awesome, but the rear LA looks too basic, no gears to extend it? Also I'm gonna fix you file's tracks :wink:

yes, the drivetrain of the actuator is very minimalistic, but i had no idea where i can place the knob for actuating. the exhaust pipe is for lifting the shield, the airfilter for lifting the ripping tooth. do you have an idea which doesnt look wrong?

thanks for the tracks
