I finally got a chance to purchase one of these KPS models to see what a hand made brass/metal model was like. Pretty amazing details and a lot of weight but now that I have this and can compare it to my CCM, Bymo and TWH shovels I can honestly say that they are all fantastic but this is just top tier. Do I think it's worth 2x or 3x the money? Depends on the collector. I really like how they use a jewel for the lights as they sparkle nicely.

This RH200 is equipped with a noise suppression kit as well as a dust control system which is why it has the big water tanks on each side.

That's a sharp looking model. It looks good next to the Cats.

I agree with you regarding the jeweled headlights! I remember first seeing them on Tekno scale models in the '60s. It's a mystery why they never found their way into construction equipment models other than the few Arpra pieces.

Congrats on your RH 200, and please don't take this out of context? I've only seen 3 KPS models in person and find them very nice, but at this price point the hand railings should be tubular as on the real machines! On this particular model, it is an inexcusable oversight to include the spray bar on the stick but not the supply hoses IMO.
