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 rare miniatures and related components for the model where offered for sale.

FanKit Models from Romania presented the Delta Machinery PL95H Pipelayer in addition to their impressive program, including Oshkosh, DART and Kenworth (construction) vehicles.
A full year ago in Ede only a glimps as prototype in parts and now rightly very proud of the end result!! A must have for every Pipelayer collector.

UPDATE! The making of... ACCO Super Dozer

Custom scale model builder Matteo from Trilex Modelli is making good progress on one of his latest projects: Building a ACCO Super Bulldozer in 1:50th scale.
The ACCO Super Bulldozer is the largest and most powerful Track-Type Tractor ever made. It was built in Italy, by the Umberto Acco company. The ACCO super bulldozer was constructed mainly of Caterpillar parts. This bulldozer has a gross weight of 183 tons and is powered by two 675hp Caterpillar engines and has a dozer blade that is 23 ft.

Today time for an update with an extra 25 photos added of this "The making of... a ACCO Super Bulldozer" and during the coming period, Matteo will guide you by the complete design and construction process of this unique scale model, and the end result shall eventually, as a real custom builder wants to achieve display the 1: 1 machine as naturally as possible. You will be amazed with the high standards he sets!

Hello kwabbus,

this is a truely amazing replica of the ACCO dozer. Even the BERCO track pads are absolutly true-to-the-scale with the reinforcement of the grouser bars. Looks like there is every bolt in place on this tractor and the twin drivetrain convinces me on the spot. Wow. Great job by Matteo!

And thank you for your website and all the work connected with it. I love it, one of the best on the net regarding CAT models. Especially the making-of section! That said, I hope to see further photos and steps of Ads D9E Van Damme plough tractor soon!


Cheers,

Max
