I just received my BYMO Bucyrus coloured re-named Terex MT4400AC Dump Truck…. I think it looks pretty good. I bought it through the Bucyrus International Merchandise Web Site.
I don’t know who did the custom paint job, but it has been very well done,
It looks quite nice.
I can’t wait to see further Bucyrus coloured models hit the market.
Rather than custom painted models, I’d like to see the various other size old Terex Dump Trucks, like the MT3300AC, MT3700AC & the MT6300AC.
A RH400 and maybe a RH340B would also go down nicely, I hope you enjoy the photos,,, I did the Citic Pacific Mining custom job with the yellow safety rails and decals on the Terex…

Think I'm going to have to wait a while longer for those Bucyrus colors to grow on me. Interesting model though, thanks for sharing.

I love the colours, thanks for sharing! Very original. These trucks must stand out in an all-white fleet.

Footloose52,

Curious, what makes you think this was a custom paint job and not painted at the factory?

Seems odd to me that the packaging would all be redone professionally for a custom paint job.

Randy,

They are in effect a custom paint job. I don't believe I'm allowed to go into details, but they did not come out of the factory in those colours.

It's growing on me. I think I just need to see more photos on the 1:1 machines in the field. Nice addition to the collection!

Its curious how the new colours seem to change the shape of the model, much like dazzle camouflage, just like some cars (or women) look better in certain colours.

That certainly gives a new look to mining trucks with the colors.

I would love to see an RH340 repainted in Bucyrus colors as well. I hope it's something that's being considered by the company. Pray

I must admit, I didn't think much of the new Bucyrus colors on the truck but I really like them on the shovel. Interesting to notice the B designation too...

I gotta say I liked the colours from day one,pity though the Terex colours have died too,

that rh340 looks beautiful!

Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

... It's better to be silent and thought a fool, then to speak up and remove all doubt

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

Awesome, thanks for posting that, Brian! I hadn't checked the Bucyrus site since the truck was added. I'll definitely be getting this one to replace my smoked/damaged Terex RH340 shovel.

Will this model only be available through the Bucyrus models website or available through international dealers?
