Product Description

US Bulldozer Le Tourneau. 

Wespe 87070. Resin Kit. 1/87 Scale. Unfinished.

(Only one per kit. Pic shows 2 different paint schemes, military and civilian). 

  Wespe Models resin kits are cleaned of extra flash and ready to assemble out of the box (unlike many other resin kits that you need to clean before assembly).


Bulldozers:  LeTourneau was the largest supplier of bulldozers to Caterpillar tractors during World War Two.  Its plant on NE Adams Street was three miles away from the Caterpillar tractor plant across the Illinois River in East Peoria.  Completed tractors were trucked to the LeTourneau plant for outfitting with bulldozers and their related control equipment.  Mostly, if not all of the 14,000 LeTourneau built bulldozers were mounted on many of the 56,306 Caterpillar tractors built during the war.


Definition:  It should be noted that the vehicle in the photo below is a not a bulldozer.  It is a crawler tractor with an attached bulldozer.  Technically the bulldozer is the blade attached to the front of the tractor.  During WWII Allis-Chalmers, Caterpillar, and International Harvester built crawler tractors.  Other companies, such as LeTourneau, built bulldozer blades and their control mechanisms; then installed them onto the crawler tractors.  Both the US Army and US Navy list crawler tractors in their list of equipment, not bulldozers.  But to most persons, including generals and admirals from WWII, the entire tractor with the blade is a bulldozer.


 Assembly required. This item is an unassembled and unpainted plastic model. 1/87 (HO) Scale. The factory photos may show it as a fully assembled and painted model.  Paint, glue, and decals not included. 

  This model is for collectors and model makers from 14 years and older. It is not a toy.

  We carry in stock everything you need to finish your kit including tools, paint spray guns, adhesives / glue, paints acrylic and oil base, decals and many reference and modeling books.
