ANNOUNCEMENT! Caterpillar 259D [Diecast Masters 1:50]


Diecast Masters has in advance of their worldwide introduction at the International Toy Fair aka Spielwarenmesse 2017 announced their first new to release Caterpillar scale models in their 1:50th scale diecast "High Line Series":

Caterpillar 259D Compact Track Loader #85526

Yes indeed, you read that correctly: 1:50th scale. Truly a super surprise! I am therefore very pleased that Diecast Masters has been given the opportunity and took the challenge to deliver a Compact Track Loader in 1:50th scale instead of the always applied scale of 1:25 or 1:32 for this type of machinery. WORLD CLASS!!

And this is only the start for more to come.....

This is great news and hopefully a wheel version will be accompanied close behind. However Wouter I feel you had a hand it the influence where the track vs wheels are concerned due to your CCM custom 272C into compact track loader Cool Teeth. Also to all those like me who desire a cat skid steer in 1:50 know that consciousness intensions as a unified collective always get answers and we now receive what we ask for as collectors. The power of influence is within each of us. Thank you Wouter for the exciting surprise.

Roland.

ANNOUNCEMENT! Caterpillar 242D [Diecast Masters 1:50]


Diecast Masters has in advance of their worldwide introduction at the International Toy Fair aka Spielwarenmesse 2017 announced their first new to release Caterpillar scale models in their 1:50th scale diecast "High Line Series":

Caterpillar 242D Skid Steer Loader #85525

Yes indeed, you read that correctly: 1:50th scale. Truly a super surprise! I am therefore very pleased that Diecast Masters has been given the opportunity and took the challenge to deliver both a Compact Track Loader and Skid Steer Loader in 1:50th scale. Fingers crossed that both scale models will be released with some extra ( and different) Caterpillar attachments.

UPDATE! The making of...a Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader

The Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader is a "one of a kind" custom scale model. Ad used for this project a "spare" Caterpillar 272C Skid Steer Loader which has been released by Classic Construction Models in a limited edition of only 200 pieces. The model is hand crafted from brass in 1:48th scale.

These comic books where in fact instructional publications by Caterpillar intended for adult customers using Caterpillar equipment. Most of them where released in English, 32 pages, full color, 8.25-in. x 10.5-in. and printed on semi-slick paper.

In the Mini Movers - Caterpillar Scale Model Group on Facebook we have create a special photo album to share our Caterpillar Comic books.

UPDATE! Modelshow Europe 2017

Saturday, March 18th, 2017 the 26st Modelshow Europe was held in the flowerauction "Plantion" nearby the city Ede in the Netherlands.

On this special exhibition one could see all kinds of miniatures and model construction projects in the field of earthmoving, cranes and heavy transport. This Modelshow Europe exhibition is unique by its grand design and the only one in Europe.
Many collectors and builders showed on the Modelshow Europe their (rebuilt and/or radio controlled) models. Also a wide range of miniatures and related components for the modeller where offered for sale.

Mini Movers together with some members of our "CSVT" group from home and abroad, was present during the entire day in and around the booth.
