I have building this road grader by combining 3 different plans. Just as with the Excavator that I build a while ago I built this road grader so that it is just wide and long enough to fit on the kenworth-lowboy that I intend to build one of these days.

The blade mechanism was a little bit of a challenge but eventually I manage to beat it. The lower disc to which the blade is attached can swivel left or right.

I really like this model.  Realism , detail, and wood choices are spot-on.
