Advent 2023 Day 10 MOC Instructions

Skid-steer Bulldozer

For day 10 of Advent (December 10th), I designed and built this model of a skid-steer bulldozer, using the parts from the first 10 days of the Friends and Marvel Advent calendar sets.

For the first week (Days 1-7) I felt that I hadn’t received enough parts yet to do anything very useful so I didn’t try to build a MOC (My Own Instructions) for those days, but after that I built a new one for each day starting with Day 8. Now I’m providing instructions for each of these models. To build it, you’ll need the parts from days 1-10 of both the Friends and Marvel sets, or the same/similar parts from your collection.

Commonly associated with the brand name Bobcat, these small tractors are a fixture of small construction sites everywhere. Check out this interesting history of where the Bobcat came from. I built mine as a bulldozer rather than a loader because I wanted to use the snowboard, but I’ve seen Bobcats with a wide variety of attachments. The original Bobcat was a farm machine long before it was discovered to be useful in construction and demolition.

Here are the instructions to build this model, should you be so inclined.

This year I purchased and built two of the available five calendars LEGO has released: Friends and Marvel. You’ll need these, or at least some of the parts from them, if you want to build the MOCs I designed. If you want the other Advent calendars for 2023, here are some links to them on Amazon: City, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. (But please don’t support Harry Potter, due to the transphobic politics of J. K. Rowling.)
