Thanks Jack! Finished the ball joint ends for the cylinders.












At the bottom right you see scrap parts from the spherical bearings from which I extracted the balls and the bearing inlays.

Default Volvo G990 Grader 1:8 - Small update

More than overdue as the old cloud provider disabled the direct picture linking (luckily the old links are still valid). In the meantime the indexing bar and (all) cylinders were finished.

Thanks Lynn!
The grease fitting seats are at the arrows. They just haven´t been fitted yet. The central grease hole is barely visible in the next pic.





Not kidding

You just got elevated to a master craftsman I was looking more for a grease fitting in the bearing block not the ball joint itself. What other thing have you put in this work of art that you haven't shown us yet?!?!

Second thought- you are way above a master craftsman!!

The build is well beyond my imagination. Just can't believe this is a model. Amazing craftsmanship!

@All: Thanks a lot for the positive comments.

@Lynn: Ok, I was kidding a bit The grease fittings will not be operational - but coming to think of it...

@Kent: Hope you can see the pictures now.

@Jack: Yeah, haven´t had it all put together for a long time now, so think that would be a good idea. But no such pics at the moment. Sorry!

@Bo: Hopefully someone else builds the miniature grease gun Maybe some day in a very far future my second grader will be for sale

Stefan

Simply based on scaled down real weight I estimate it to be at least 40 kg. Extra implements like ripper and front blade not included.
