Euclid R-62, scale 1/24

My next project is something completely different. No crane this time!
My main fascination is with cranes, but I also love earthmoving equipment.

The intention is to make this dump truck fully functioning and able to handle tough conditions.



I started with the axles. I will make axles with planetary end drives and lockable differentials.
These are the parts:



Planetaries come from this motor:


The axles are taking shape:

Kerst great start to a great looking end dump, can’t wait to see the end result for this truck. You should probably start a build of the Terex 72-81 wheel loader to go with your dump, just a suggestion. But wouldn’t that be a mean looking combo in 1/24 scale.
Keep up the great work and keep the pictures coming.
Thanks

I made some good progress on the suspension. The front axle is ready, but the rears need more work. The springs are made from worn out hack saw blades. They are very flexible and only the teeth are hardened, so it is easy to cut them.

Hi Kerst,

I can learn alot about building frames just by looking at your pictures. Wonderful model. Will it be powered by one or two electric motors?

Cheers Max

thank you all for the encouraging words!

I made good progress with the cab and the hood. The difficulty is finding the right measurements, but I think I am close. It starts looking like a big mean truck!
