A little project from yesterday,I helped fellow forum member Footloose52 move the huge 8750 dragline into it`s new home.We added a few other models for size.Everything is 1:50 scale.There is even a black and red lifting thing so Bobm does not feel left out.
Thats all for now.More pics to follow once the Big Muskie is built.

That is insane, you could operate a miniature mine with that! I really like the display cabinet too.

They had one of these at the Open House also. Quite impressive up close, but the logistics of displaying and moving... d'oh!

Shaun,

It is great to see this model in its final resting place. It is an awesome machine and I was so luck to be able to help Peter assemble it in his home.

The three of us must get together sometime.

That would be a sweet center piece for a collection, lift side or dirt side you get alittle of both

Nice stuff Shaun, i visited a collector yesterday to view his 8750 and it is an impressive bit of gear, no question. He too has a Muskie and i feel very priviledged to have been able to get about as close as i can afford to them!!!

What I can't get over is how small the Big Musky makes the 797b look in the second last picture.

What an amazing collection.....

And they are to each other the right scale, both 1/87. Muskie could swing in the order of 350 ton a bucket so basically a 797 size load each time.

What a beautiful collection of mining & dirt equipment. I do see at least one crane (AC500) which would be needed for the assembly of those big beasts!
I wish I had the room for the 8750, I would have bought one. Thanks for the all the pictures.
