Caterpillar D8K with field mods. Completed. When I started on this I was unsure if it would hold my interest to the end, after all it’s just yellow and brown. Was I wrong. This model was A blast to paint. This is A plastic model not diecast I build it from the basicAMT kit. 3d parts where added alone with small details and lots of scratch work.
