Glenn G. was kind enough to give me a second Woodland Scenics excavator kit to use on the Hutton Brick Co. diorama. (As you can see from the prototype slide, they had several.) Since I had already built the first one according to the kit specs. I decided to play a little with the second.
It took a lot of filing and grinding with the Dremel but, I removed all the cast on open doors and shuttered things as on the prototype.
