very nice looking. looks like it can be a nice forestry dozer. does the winch actually work or is it just for show?

Here's another couple pics of the PC300 and one with the 51EX in the back ground, I shot these at Conexpo and they look like awesome models indeed! They should be arriving sometime in June if I'm not mistaken

Damn those are nice. Looks like the 300 is a better model than the 330 but who knows, Like usuall I guess us Cat guys will have to wait to mid spring time to see the darn Cat models.

Kenny ya lurker!!! Glad to see you back posting.

I guess you saw it firsthand and can vouch for the detail, but both models look pretty sharp. Nothing against Cat, but it's good to see a few other nicely done machines out there in 1:50. It's also good to see that more of the commonly seen excavators are being done.(in regards to size) For me the largest machine I'd see on a daily basis would be a 30 ton machine, so it's nice to have/customize machines I'd normally see. Cant wait to see both either way.

Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years.

I couldn't agree with you more Dirtboy. Although I would like to say that after this run of models it would be nice to see something other than excavator models lol, I mean there are more machines out there besides them.

I thought that those were new models when I saw them at Conexpo, now I remember seeing a prototype sign in the display cabinet as well. Kenny, they weren't selling any at the showm right? Because if they were then I would be kicking myself for not getting one, but I was pretty sure they weren't.

They had a limited number of 200 of the new First Gear WA 500's that I was fortunate enough to grab one of on the first day because I believe they sold out by later on the second day, but I didn't see any of the PC300 or 51EX's for sale... There was a sign saying they were getting more new models in such as the Pc450 and some of the other Universal Hobbies models in on Saturday some could have arrived then possibly but I had to leave before then so someone else will have to shed some light on thatThink

I saw the WA 500's also, but I didn't think it was a new model, but it looked pretty nice and well detailed. I'm not a big fan of those first 4 UH Komatsu models, but I might get that excavator, and maybe that dozer. The Komatsu store was pretty small compared to 2005, in '05 they had a hugeee store with a bunch of big tv's and those same simulator games, I remeber I got one of the PC 200's in '05.
