For the running gear, you would need a 'Vickers Vigor' tractor, made by Invicata Toys and LONG out of production. Occasionally, examples appear on eBay but they tend to be expensive.
Otherwise, you will have to scratchbuild your own wheels and tracks
Then , you would need a kit of the Silhouette concept car, made by AMT. Again quite rare.

You could try ebay for the Vigor but they are very rare indeed and if they appear, they are extremely expensive because collectors dearly want them.


You might have more luck with the Silhouette but they're currently out of production

No, far more than that; they're only the ones I can think of at the moment

The Silouette is easy to find having been re-released just a short while ago. The Vicker Vigor is very, very rare and never seems to sell for less than 1000 so unless you feel wealthy, you'll need to custom build one.

thanks boys,
But I can't figure out why Vickers Vigor is need? I meen there're a lot of good another bulldozers, for instance CATepillar which has got more details and issues for thunderbirds cars.To buy thing which cost 1000$ is out of question.I plan to buy Refinery(89$) it cost much(, then CAT.
More one question, wood.Which wood is need? I saw how CaptainAppollo made an amazing model of Grey/Houseman Co.He used wood.Which?Where to buy?
