Hello,

this is a crawler loader inspired by the Caterpillar 973 crawler loader models. The idea for this build came from Jim55.
A crawler loader basically is a wheel loader combined with a bulldozer and can be used for loading lorries or bulldozing.

Something I didn't know until now is that you can place item frames behind banners, just like you can place item frames behind signs. That allowed me to build rear headlights merged with the radiator grille extremely realistically.

If you were looking for a wheel loader, I also made a New Holland Wheel Loader.

Enjoy!

Start with the tracks. And then build your way up and forth, as if you were assembling a real vehicle. Don't build like a 3D printer xD

Yep, something needed to fit in between the tracks, but I wasn't able to do it with blocks, so I tried armor stands. The neat thing is, they incidentally create a better track design, cause you can see the top of the helmets through the half slabs. So, I kinda killed two birds with one stone.
