The only one I know of off hand is a resin kit by Resicast called the Cat / Le Turneau bulldozer kit # 35144. It sells for a little over $100! It's pretty darn cool though.


Another one, although it's a UK version: Kit # 35142


You could also opt for the Sherman dozer conversin from Resicat kit # 35101


or Verlinden's M1 Dozer Conversion, kit # 0646

How'd I miss that one? Nice find.
I just wish they had a pic of the kit. Perhaps you'll provide us with one when you get it?
