1:25 Locust L752 Skid Steer - PMHT

Decided I needed a break from the FAMO for a bit so I started my first PMHT project.

This is the 1/25 scale version. The first 10 parts went together nicely.

Looks like a good model of an interesting piece of earth-moving equipment. I see a lot of similar machines creeping around.

Today was nuts! Had to help welcome Grandson #4 into the world. Alexander (Xander) Stephen Perry arrived relatively early this morning. In spite of all this I did get to spend a little time at the bench today.

Here is what you get after the next ten parts (11-20). The uprights were a bit fiddly. Everything else built up fine.

Heartfelt congratulations to You and Robin on the arrival of grandson Xander Stephen Perry from Lil and me!

In three weeks, we'll buy you a beer at the Café Bruges.

Congratulations!

However, you in no way seem old enough to be a grand dad!

I certainly didn't feel old enough 9 years ago when the first grandson arrived. Now that there's four, living in my house, I'm feeling older than my years. My gray hair tells the tale.

Thanks Don, Lil, and Ray!

On a business trip this week. I do have this model with me but didn't bring any clear sheet plastic for windows, so I started on the trailer instead. Here are parts 1 - 12 for the trailer.

Trailer parts up through 20. Axle tube fit was not perfect, had to cut down the frame beams at the end to center the axle tube.

Finished up the cab through parts 63. Fit continues to be very good.
