Building Customized Caterpillar Toys

For customizer Jon Stiles, big results come from tiny details in his caterpillar tractor toy hobby.

Toy customizer Jon Stiles converted a 1/25-scale gray Conrad Model Toy Co. Caterpillar Sixty into a logging cruiser, typical of those used in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He added a lot of detail, like a convertible top, which was rare in the real world because they were often quickly torn off when working in the forest.
