    this is an older custom of mine...probably about a year old now...

    anyway, i spotted this bulldozer at my local hobby shop...it's 1:16th, made by Bruder...i had intended to paint this one and see how it came out...if all went well i was gonna go full out and get their cement truck, crane truck, excavator, front loader and dump truck and then somehow, god willing, make a "1:18th" Devastator...he woulda been around 5' tall if my calculations were correct...woulda been glorious!

    ...problem was, Bruder, nor anyone for that matter, made a dump truck that woulda made an acceptable Long Haul :( ...i searched high and low, old and new, and came up empty handed...

    what i ended up with was what you see here...a one off, non-transforming Bonecrusher paint job on a bulldozer...BTW, this was one of my first ever attempts at weathering, so be gentle :)

    your weathering may be off, but the wear on the front there looks perfect!
    So what is the overall size of this?

    Looks good. Maybe try adding some rust or other grime in there as well to boost the realism factor.

    Have a go at Devastator man, mind as well do the real deal right?

    Oh! So you can actually fit the GIJOE's into the cab?!?!?
    I saw that one pic but couldn't tell exactly how big they were with the perspective and all.

    R!
