Still waiting for a 225 or 235

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

I'd like to see CCM make one of Cats new foresty machines, a 558 or a 548 would be nice.

Hopefully they will get the cab and window geometry correct on the 200 series cabs. NZG got it right on the 215, yet somehow CCM missed it on the 245.

My understanding is that they are not going to produce any small to medium machines in 1/48 scale. Cat ultimately decides on what is to be produced. I myself have been "lobbing" for certain machines for years. I am hoping yet for a 235 excavator, but that is questionable.Think Whistle d'oh! Ken

Although CCM has been releasing a fair share of the historic version models in "Highway Yellow" it's good to see a 973 being chosen for the next upcoming release.

However, I do hope there is still some "modern" models to be announced in 1/48 as I believe the 735B was the last model advertised and now shipping? I realize there is the "Contractors Series" in 1/24 but that is still a far off scale and doesn't compliment anything for the 1/48-1/50 collector market. Always thought a 450F Backhoe Loader would be a great model to be made by CCM as with it being larger than the 420F2 IT from DM it might be easier to add some extra detail due to the size. Think
