This is an extremely detailed, highly accurate, and well-engineered kit. It will take a lot of patience and only very experienced modelers should undertake this little beauty due to the large number of minute, sometimes microscopic parts. With 759 parts in a model that’s less than 6” long, the kit packs a lot of tiny parts in a dense model of the Cat D7. The fit of the parts is phenomenal. The many pipes and levers, layers of body parts, and even the articulated treads all came together nicely.
The kit is part of MiniArt's WW2 Military Miniature series. Previous versions of the kit include:
- US Tractor D7 w/Towing Winch D7N (35174)
- US Army Bulldozer (35195)
- US Army Tractor w/Angled Dozer Blade (35184)
Kit comes in a 15 x 9.5 x 3" box with thin corrugated bottom. The box lists 759 plastic parts, photoetch parts, 2 clear plastic parts, small decal sheet, and instruction booklet. Features include workable tracks, and a fully detailed engine compartment and chassis.
