                          Here's little constructive criticism on your models. None of this is intended to offend.

                          The bulldozer on page 1 seems a bit out of proportion and definitely appears to be much smaller then one would expect to see in that environment. I'd imagine something along the lines of a Caterpillar D9 would be more appropriate. Your model seems like it's only one size bigger then a Bobcat. Here's a photo of a D9 that shows off just how big it is.

                          The backhoe on page 2 is broken between the boom and the stick. The only thing holding it together is the hydraulic ram, which of course is physically impossible. The stick should be attached to the boom on a hinge.

                          The the clamp on the feller buncher could use improvement. As it looks right now, I don't think it's believeable. I know you can't show all of the intricacies of the real machine, but a little more detail will definitely help.

                          The log handler looks great with the exception of the hydraulic cylinders and rams. The rams are twice as long as the cylinders and the cylinders are much too narrow. The cylinders should also be mounted to the chassis directly above the front axle. Here's a photo of an L180F fully extended to show the differences:

                          Best of luck with your project!!

                            Getting one of these working ingame would be fun to see.

                                What I was calling the clamp on the feller buncher is actually the saw head. Your model lacks a lot of detail that would make me believe it can actually grab and cut down a tree. The blade needs some kind of drive assembly. It's just sort of there and ,to me, makes no sense without a motor to make it spin. The clamps need to look like they move. Right now they look welded in place and incapable of latching onto a tree. I know you can't add every detail, but it would definitely benefit from a little extra work.

                                I'm sure you know what they look like, but just for reference here's a few pics.
