Felipe that is one fantastic looking shovel, they used those around here in the 70’s putting in the major highways. The majority were removing and loading blasted rock into Euc’s as Max has already pointed out.

Max one of these days we are going to see some great dioramas on Felipe’s posts with his most excellent collection, he is saving the best for last. Hopefully the inventor of the “tooth” brush from NC will help him out with the transport end of his equipment in the dioramas by sending him some of those still boxed lowbeds along with his extensive knowledge on how Felipe’s heavy iron should be loaded and moved legally.

Max, The Q and I are talking Felipe into doing some major dioramas with that beautiful collection of his, I’m the cheerleader and Q is the money guy, he has like 4 or 5 of those trees in his backyard that produce dollars every couple of weeks. Just imagine what Felipe can do with a very realistic diorama with even more realistic looking equipment incorporated into it. We are just a few young sick individuals (well two of us are) that love the hobby.

Ok, let's move some shot rock!

What's more impressive, the originalmachine or the CCM model? I've started a scratchbuilt MENCK electric quarry shovel, one of the biggest shovels produced in Germany, electric driven. And now see, this LLIMA has the same size, but it's diesel powered.

Love the streamlined ECO bucket, we copied designs like that when our shovels had problems getting a full load in blasted rock. The bail is a nice feature, too, I always marveld about operators balancing a way too large boulder on the dipper. Here is anice article on the LIMA 2400: https://www.constructionequipment.com/diesel-powered-workhorse


Felipe, I start to wonder what you could do with a fleet like yours in real life. What about a hydroelectric plant? For each step you seem to have a machine in your collection - from land clearing to topsoil removal, to rock excavation and electric equipment installation.


Cheers,
Max


Max, hydroelectric plant would be amazing! I just need a lot of money to buy a really big house!!! Nice about your article!!!

Yes one of my favorites for sure.

I will do a different thing now. I'll do a video from my models and I'll post more about what asll you would like to see! What do you think about this idea?

I think it will be possiblem in one month, in this way I'll be out.
After I do it all of you can chose what would like to see. In this way we will avoid bore posts.

Thanks all!

Felipe that sounds good, and the only one with boring posts is that sheep herder from NC.

Hello Felipe,

after looking at the name of this thread and comparing it to the here shown content, I have come to the conclusion that we should discuss the meaning of the word "small". I have rather the impression this collection is great. To see it in videos would be even greater. Go for it.

The Komatsu D355A is a great model, nice looking replica of this classic. I just cold not stand to leave the rubber sealings yellow. Revell Aqua Color flat black is great for this task. The real machine now is very rare to find in Germany.


Looking forward to see your videos,

Max
