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

Sorry guys, simply haven´t got around to posting anything for a long time. Also didn´t do so very much on the build.

In November I noticed that most picture links were broken . The original photo host site had been taken over by another one and the pics transferred to the latter. In the process the original URLs went dead. Luckily, this forum allows editing for apparently eternal and so I managed to edit in the new URLs having first identified the picture of each broken link (over 300 of them ) by opening the HTML source code in the browser.

Concerning the build I did manage to shape the plates for the fuel tank (which will serve as the hydraulic oil tank) and make parts for the circle bearing. Also made some progress cutting a lot of screws to correct length and making scale washers. The cut screws allowed me to put some of the sub-assemblies properly together and, remembering that Jack asked for pics of the whole model, I´m happy to now be able to post some overview pics.

Width..... 34 cm (13.4") at the front hubs
............. 31.5 cm (12.4") at the rear hubs
Height.... 39 cm (15") to the upper end of the lift cylinders (as propped up on the Lego).

The weight is almost 26 kg (57 lb), this number includes the blade and the tank which are still unattached.

Lately bought some CAT models in 1:50 and put them side by side with the Volvo grader* for comparison. And I who thought I´m building something big...











Stefan

*) The G970 is just some quarter meter shorter than the G990 and the tires are typically 17.5x25 vs. 20.5x25.
