That is awsome! I might end up using that technique to lift a bed of a 1/50 dump truck, when i get around to it.

I did find a gearmotor that is 6mm in dia. and a 7mm tube that the gearmotor will slide into the tube. Then using another 6mm tube that will slide in the 7mm tube that will be attached to a nut thats driven by a screw. All i am doing is waiting for the stuff in the mail.

Here is the motor that will drive my actuator, just waiting on the tubes to put it in.

Needs paint, but this dozer is to small for real hydraulics so here the next best way for a realistic look.

Ok round two! So had to put off my project for a few years, ok more than a few years. Hey im back at it now. Cool thing is that over time rc equipment and such have gotten smaller! Ive upgraded from a 4 channel to a 6 channel receiver, smaller battery and such plus more. Im still a bit busy in life but im going to start putting in some time and finally finish this little do-da! Really lately been brain storming on how to finish the dozer.
