Caterpillar D7G sa - Ad Gevers

24 October 2022

Custom scale model builder Ad Gevers has recently started his next project of building his

Caterpillar D7G sa Tractor

It is our goal for the coming period in this Making-of Caterpillar D7G sa  Tractor to show how this custom model will be achieved.

As a basis for this project Ad uses as donor the Caterpillar D7G Medium Dozer in 1:48th scale. This scale model was released in 2020 in two limited editions of 500 pieces each by Classic Construction Models (CCM) in their High Precision Diecast Series.

Ad shares his building skills through the photos with little notes guiding us in the construction process. Gradually it shows the making of a unique model by using the donor Caterpillar D7G  from CCM in 1:48th scale to create his one of kind Caterpillar D7G sa Tractor.

Enjoy reading & watching!

The Kickoff

Ad starts building his Caterpillar D7G sa by making the Swinging Drawbar that should not be missing on a "SA" machine. Of course Ad built the Swinging Drawbar himself of brass material from scratch and made it working!!
