Komatsu D475 project.

Post #1 by niner » Thu Dec 24, 2015 5:47 pm

I know what you're thinking, not another project that wont get finished for years LOL.

This one has been easy enough, working on it inbetween other projects.

I decided to go a bit Ausie mine spec on this and add some fire suppression units, air con and a walkway surrounding the cab with access ladder.

It's still a work in progress but here it is so far.

Aircon unit, just a rough paint on this, still need to paint it and stick it on.

And the walkway, rough at the mo, stuck on with blue tack to get some fitting ideas. Have done the access ladder for the other side, just need to figure out on how to hinge it.

Looks good Martin. Did you use brass bar for the ladder swivel?

Thanks lads,

Dave, the ladder was cut off a JOAL Komatsu WA800 and I added some brass handrails to it. The rest of the handrails are brass.
