Hi Niklas,

here you go...





In my opinion Norscot made a great job. The dumping angle seems to be really authentic...

Wow, that great. Thanks for sharing! Did you get them directly from Norscot?
Looks like Norscot is getting better model by model. That 797F looks monstirious.

Drool Drool Drool Drool Envious!

However; did you 'Armor-All' those tires or is that how they come?
The 797F prototype pic had them looking quite nice.....not so glossy.

Does anybody else think there is an issue with the dogbone on the 785? it looks like it missed being attached to the chassis and is just sitting on top of the diff.

I love it, and notice how they were both out on time? Lets hope this is a sign of things to come.

Yeah Gav, it looks like the frame bracket either broke off, or wasn't attached. Otherwise, I'd have to say the rear struts need charging in a bad way with the dogbone laying flat like that...lol.

On the engine question, if you look at the 785 pic, it almost looks like they walled off the engine compartment to get away from needing an engine. I know the 784 tractor on the Towhaul lowboy at MinExpo didn't have an engine, and no one at the booth could say if it would or not.

The models look great, but I prefer the look of the tyres on the NZG 797. The Norscot tyres always look too perfect and shiny, gives them a plastic toyish look, But this will not put me off getting them, cant wait to add them to my collection!

Well the tires do have that glossy look. Unfortunately...
