KP, what planetary ratio and motor did you go with for the 777? I'm just curious what you think the truck will gross out at, weight-wise, and about how much power it would take to move the load. How many volts are you running the motor at?

I just read through a couple pages of this build to get myself caught back up, and the truck looks amazing. You are a true craftsman.

As far as your question regarding the appearance of the walkway, I think it looks fantastic, but what may be throwing it off to you is the open spaces in the walking surface. In the pictures it looks like the walking surface is expanded metal or diamond plate where you have solid metal with slots. Those slots in scale look a little big, probably a couple scale inches wide. If you attached some scale expanded metal or diamond plate on top I bet the scale appearance would change.

Again, I think it looks great and very scale, just trying to take a stab at what was bothering you when looking at it in person.

The motor /gear box is a Banebots 256:1 P60 gear box RS540 motor. 12volts

The weight of the truck will be about 85-90lbs.....

You maybe right about the slots...they are a bit big....scale would make them at about 1.5".....wish I had a picture of the walkway from above to see what it actually looks like...thanks for your input....glad you like the build!!

nice work, a work of art. I may need to get you to come help me dig out from all the snow we have here when you get it finished. We have over two feet already this is to much for this early in the winter.

Cut some panels for the box ealier today....not sure if I want them (1/2") above the frame like in the pics or even with the top of the box frame....What do you guys think???
The holes in the panels will be plug welded and then sanded flat...to avoid seeing any welds....the box floor on this model is flat unlike the real deal...kinda wish I had made it more like the real deal...would look much better...the flat floor was the easy way out...LOL..

The weight on the 1:1 777D is 142,573 lbs so if I did the math right the 1/12 model should be 82.5 lbs ??? So it may end up being a bit heavier than it should be in terms of scale....good thing this is a 1/12"ish" size and not 1/12 scale...LOL....

This model is massiVEE. And awesome I like the 1/2 inch kept above the frame part on the dump box I think it looks better than if it were to be cut flush. How many shovel-fulls of dirt you reckon this thing willl haul when you get there?

Really excellent forming and fab methods - I have learned a good bit from your posts - thank you. The guard rail and ladder methods are the best!

Thanks for those links to Waterjet companies and the Plasma cutter info - hopefully someday I can afford a table myself.

Once again - thanks for sharing your project - it's awesome!

( You just need to build a bigger dozer for all the snow... )

Thanks!!!.....glad to see my simple build and ideas are helpful...that's what this is all about, sharing and learning from others. There are builders that are much more skilled and way way more talented than me on here....as long as we share, we all get to learn....and there is SO MUCH we all can learn from each other !!! Thanks Again....

Started playing around with the fuel tank.....actually this will have two fuel tanks....it should have one fuel tank and one hyd. tank but I'm going to make both sides the same....besides you can only see one side at a time and most people won't see the error so hey works for me.....Ok so I'm cutting corners, again!! ( I just want to get this done...work out the details later..maybe )

The tank looks a bit too long....need to shorten it just a little....try and try again!!!!

Looks good to me. I think you need to air up those rear tires again! That foam you have in there is unhappy...
