Here is an all-metal hand-built 1/50 scale model of a BE 1570W. The 22kg (49ibs) model is functional with 12V motors (hoist, drag, swing and walk are operational). It also features 18 white and 2 red lights. This model was built in 2009 by French enthusiat André P. and presented last week in a mine diorama set up for an antique machinery show.

Notice the paint scheme, company name and machine nickname are not real. The walking mechanism design was not made accurate to the original machine, it was took from more modern machines like the BE 2570. Ideas of improvements (maybe for a next dragline model?) are proportional motions, converters inside the model and power supply through the base center.

I've been waiting to see what he came up with next, but the waiting is well over three years now! Have I missed something?

Thanks for the comments ! Weserhutte, you might refers to the Cat 793D coal body and 793D Tow Haul (both based on the Norscot). André also improved some of its models but these 3 models are the major realisations.

Florian





The TowHaul can be set up as a tower or with the lowboy

Very impressive collection, and even more impressive dio.

I wish I had that much space for doing one too. Really cool mining setup. Like it!!!

Man, we should all (or many of us) keep your post handy for when we need to justify our hobbies requirements to our wives!!!

The only thing that could make that dio any cooler is if all the equipment was RC.

From what people are doing these days with nano technology, it isnt too far off.

The dio took about 4 guys and 3 days to set up, not to speak about the anticipated organisation of "who brings what". Most of the diorama elements like buildings and roads were built for earlier events which made the job a little easier. These guys are part of the AIPETHOAC, a French association similar to HCEA but far much smaller in size.

AIPETHOAC! I haven't heard that name in a long, long time!! Is F. Pierre still involved with the organization? Back in the old days long before the internet, I used to wait patiently for the "Mobile Machine Model Magazine" or 4M to arrive in the mail. It was the first publication that served our specific hobby. It was crude by today's standards, but it worked and l learned some French! I obtained many rare models thanks to the publication and made a lot of friends around the world.

I'm going to have to look into this, and if it is formally alive again I will re-join.

Thank you for mentioning it!!!

To Weserhutte:

Yes F. Pierre is still in charge of the AIPETHOAC. The published magazine is now coming out under the name of : La revue des engins
and covers both real machines and the model part of them.
