Everybody loves Peppa Pig - especially my daughter. So after a recent visit to Peppa Pig World and seeing all the toys on sale I decided to design my own. Starting with our favorite - Mr Bull's Road Digger.
This was printed on my extremely cheap and cheerful Chinese printer so you should get much better results if you have a half decent printer.
Cheap crappy Chinese job.
Colour to match the part (saves painting later)
No raft needed for any part. 30% infill except for the tracks where I used 15% to save filament.
Parts can be glued with PVC solvent (if you've used ABS). Parts to glue are: cab sections, light, arm mount and tracks.
** Ensure you insert the arm mount into the cab before the seat or you will struggle.
The digger arms are pinned together to provide movement. They are a snug fit so a little force is required (try pushing in with a small clamp to keep the force straight).
Again the wheel axles just click into the recesses in the tracks.
