« Part 236: Hopper Car For Reading Train Part 237 of Toy Construction series Part 238: Working on a Bob Cat Model More done »

Started on the Toys & Joys Bob Cat model and wonders of wonders I brought the camera with me today.
This is another very simple but way fun model to build.

5 hours work in 12 seconds.

Tried something a little different for the roof.

I have been through the factory, ran a few different ones, and even knew one of the original designers(BUILDERS).

You are doing a marvelous job. On a fantastic machine.

The very first ones were 3 wheels; but less than 1/2 dozen were ever made like that. The Kellers still own 2 of the originals.

I just love this project and have built another one a while back but wanted to build it to the plans this time.
Always love to hear about the history of these projects and how they have affected our lives in the real world [work or play].

This is a Toys & Joys plan.
We always had a Bob Cat but they call it a Skid Steer Loader at T&Y ???
Would be thrilled to see your take on it.
