During my vacation to Pennsylvania and Ohio the end of May, I managed to finish the main part of this model - The skid steer loader. I finished the trailer this past week. Thought I had taken pictures of the entire thing, but I guess not. Here is what I got though, and will catch up when I get home from current business trip.

Very cool model, and very precise assembly. It's something I would never thought of building, but that's the beauty of our hobby - no matter what your particular modelling interest is, you can find it in paper.

I believe I got it from Orlik online shop. Second possibility would be GPM's online shop.

This model comes in two different sizes: 1:32 which was the original published scale and this one at the larger 1:25 scale. Publisher is PMHT

Here are some "beauty" shots. Sorry I lost track of the build details, what with all the travelling I've been doing. Anyway, pinning the arm assembly on the skid steer was an arduous task. At times, I could have used a third hand to facilitate pin installation.

scratch built parts had part numbers next to them and did not say "make them". You had to figure that out for yourself.

The tire assemblies do not have internal "donut" formers to provide any structure, so the tire assemblies were also a little tricky. Since this model was originally designed in 1:32, the wheels may not have needed the structure, but, at 1:25, additional support would have been beneficial.

The trailer is almost as detailed as the skid steer and is well thought out. Some of the rolled pieces were replaced with rod stock though to improve results.

Overall, not a bad little project. If you have some experience and like construction equipment, I recommend this one. However I am not sure that the 1:32 version would be easier. I suspect just the opposite from the smaller sizes of the parts.
