ZEN MAGNETS, NEOBALLS, BUCKY CHROMATICS – Neodymium Magnetic Balls (@1070) – Digger Dozer (v2 and v3).

Video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPITCmqhpq4

This is the colored version of the Digger Bulldozer (Digger Dozer v1). It uses a combinations of Zen Magnets, NeoBalls, and Bucky Chromatics to show off a lot more detail that was lost in the original mono-chrome version. I chose the color combos to make the parts detail really stand out.

Digger Dozer v2 kept the straight scooper arms, increased the size of the scooper,. and added some top teeth.

Digger Dozer v3 modified the scooper arms to be more smaller bulldozers. This mod shortened the length enough to fit into a 4x7x4 inch display case.

The Super Scooper that contained all the NeoBall colors turned out too big and two layers were removed for the final design.

Got the display case from Taps Plastics along with a small lazy susan that I will add to the bottom later to allow the case to rotate. The metal base used to keep the dozer in place was constructed using Zen Magnet gift set plates (3), aluminum foil tape, scotch tape, and prism film
plastic coated paper. The plates were taped together and wrapped in the prism paper.

Description from v1 … I’ve always had this design in the back of my head to do. After several attempts, this one came out the closest to what I had in mind. This little beauty has a little scooper blade in the front, wheels instead of caterpillar treads, a digger arm in the rear with two stabilizing legs on either side.

It has a solid body using the same layering building technique I’ve used in the past (start with a parallel center and work your way outward adding details as part of the layering). The wheels were done using a hexagon layer on one side and an offset circular ring pattern on the other. The wheel axle height is compensated within the body using a notch.

Because of the single strand magnetic field, the front roof supports could not be straightened out.

There is a little seat for the driver inside the cab area, which is open. The weight of the entire thing is resting on the wheels.

An office building will soon rise along Main where the old downtown Macy’s was demolished in September 2013. Per the designs below, the building will rise 23-stories and 346 feet.
When it’s built, here’s what the tower could look like.
