Today i learned i had the track shoe design backwards.
After watching many pictures, i redesigned the shoes, making them more scale looking.
Take your pick of complete pads or easy-print pad/shoe split files !

Sorry for not posting the cosmetic elements yet, i was busy making a trailer to transport the dozer.
I'll be posting files soon, since i've finished the trailer !

I got a question from a user about the scale, so uploaded 2 pictures with the Excavator cabin beside, to show the size difference.
The excavator is about 1/20 of a big excavator, the dozer is about 1/10 of a small dozer, with the same tracks.
No scaling necessary for any files, just print everything as-is !
(The needed excavator files are now uploaded here too, no need to locate them by yourself)

I have updated most files with "quality of life" improvements.
(more surface to glue parts, screw holes where needed, radius on some sharp corners)

Tomorrow i will publish the remaining files to mount the N20 motors and it will be a functional model.
(although i don't know yet if both N20 will work well or bind)

I will then slowly add detail parts to make it more realistic.

I posted a picture that's lacking only the cabin top, sorry about the quality, black PETG is very hard to see but it can give you an idea of the scale it's gonna be.
Erdinger's Excavator was about 1/20 scale, i think this dozer will be about 1/10 scale of a Caterpillar D4K.
The size will fit nicely on a trailer behind a scale truck, it will not look too small or big compared, which is what i wanted in the beginning.
