Default CAT 773G Quarry Dump Truck

So the "CAT" is out of the hat, and Ive decided that my next in depth Personal build would be the CAT 773G quarry dump, Ive always wanted to build a Quarry dump but was unsure of which model... ive scaled down the 773 and its a perfect fit for my requirements and will work just fine on my personal layout. This build will be in depth no detail will be ignored, with full interior detail including engine and it components, lights, sound, etc.... I scratch built everything except wheels tires and drive-train.

Here is the inspiration...

So i had some time to myself the other day and got around to making the frame



I liked how it came out considering it was my first time dealing with brass on a bigger scale



but after succesfully making the one side I realized it was too time consuming to do it this way so i reverted back to good old aluminum



also finished up engine design and ran the test print... very pleased...

Ran some prototypes for the front suspension, almost happy with it, still needs tweaking, im trying to get it as close to the real deal while getting functionality out of it

got the double wheel adapter all figured out





then i decided to take apart my trans because rc4wd is notorious for sending them with minimal lubrication inside, plus i needed to paint it to match the motor anyway


and i finally got around to adding detail to the motor with some 1/16 aluminum rod and some electrical wiring and paint
