LATEST ADDITION! DJB D44 Articulated Dump Truck [MDF 1:50]

Last Modelshow Europe in Ede I was able to purchase another unique model from Les Miniatures du Faubourg MDF), as always Andre Rochat, coming from Southern France, made ​​the long journey to the Modelshow Europe to show his latest developed models.

DJB D44 Articulated Dump Truck

DJB Engineering Ltd was founded in 1973 in Peterlee, County Durham in England by David John Bowes Brown. The Firm built its first Articulated Dump Truck (ADT) a model D250 in 1974, based on a Caterpillar drive train. The trucks were marketed exclusively through Caterpillar dealers world wide as the major components were all Caterpillar. The range was expanded and sales grew steadily with Caterpillar buying the rights to the design & branding them as Caterpillar DJB in 1985 and eventually buying the company out in 1995.

The scale model DJB D44 Articulated Dump Truck is mostly made ​​of resin and is built available in two versions for the price starting of 210,- Euro's.

My first impression: Excellent scale model! In my opion his best succeeded and built scale model. I’m therefore very pleased with this unique addition to my Articulated Dumptruck collection.

A must have for every collector.

LATEST ADDITION! Caterpillar 621 [NZG 1:50]


This week I received this latest addition made by NZG in my collection and directly took it to the photo set:

Caterpillar 621 Wheel Tractor-Scraper #122

The Caterpillar 621 Wheel Tractor-Scraper scale model was already since the early years a part of my Earthmoving collection and was so unnoticed for more than thirty years in my possession.
With the recent arrival of the Caterpillar 621K Scraper I had to create space in the display cabinet and only then I noticed that the NZG model of age fell apart and had never been complete.
That's why I was very happy that I got the opportunity through a collector friend to obtain for a very decent price a mint boxed copy.

My first impression: A must have within every Caterpillar Wheel Tractor-Scrapers collection.
For me a very valuable scale model because it brings back the good memories of the days I used to attend scale model swap meetings with my Dad.

I will add more pictures from the Caterpillar 621 Wheel Tractor-Scraper scale model, machine 1:1 and background information in the category Wheel Tractor-Scrapers.
So stay tuned for more!

Wouter

LATEST ADDITION! Caterpillar CT660 Mechanic Truck [Otter Bro Customs 1:50]


Last week I received from America this latest addition in my collection and directly took it to the photo set:

Caterpillar CT660 “HOLT” Mechanics truck

Under the name Otter Bro Customs (OBC) appear regularly exclusive custom built models that allow you to add another unique replica Caterpillar model to your collection. I'm very lucky that I can add another small (I mean the scale!) masterpiece to my Caterpillar On-Highway Truck collection.

This unique one of a kind scale model is made by using the Caterpillar CT660 Vocational Dump Truck and the Mechanics truck upper body taken from the Peterbilt 335 produced by TWH Collectibles and is completely custom modified and rebuild by Otter Bro Customs in scale 1:50.

I will add more pictures from the Caterpillar CT660 “HOLT” Mechanics truck scale model, machine 1:1 and background information in the category On-Highway Trucks

LATEST ADDITION! Caterpillar DD9G “QUAD” [EMD 1:50]


This week I received this latest addition made by EMD in my collection and directly took it to the photo set:

Caterpillar DD9G “QUAD” Track-Type Tractor #N109

The American company EMD has re-released most from the "old" ATM models. If you want to see if this model or kit is still available you can contact Brandon Lewis at Buffalo Road Imports in America.

I have the kit of the Caterpillar DD9G “QUAD” Track-Type Tractor, made by EMD, already for many years in my possession, but for the moment definitely still have no time left to build it myself. So when I was able to get hold to the ready built model through the internet and for a decent price the choice was made quickly. Despite the excellent packaging due traveling from distant Alaska to the Netherlands my scale model first had to visit one of my best collector friends for a necessary "Pit Stop" in which the model in record time fortunately could be restored to its former glory.

My first impression: A unique and must have D9 within every Caterpillar Track-Type Tractor collection.

The complete review with more pictures from the Caterpillar DD9G "QUAD" scale model, machine in 1:1 and background information is added in the category Track-Type Tractors

kwabbus: I would agree that the EMD version of the D99G Quad is beautiful and highly detailed. Every one should have one. However, in my collecting over the last 15 years or so, virtually every EMD model that I have purchased has arrived broken. They are too fragile. In this case I wouldn't even try at obtain this D99G quad from EMD. I would much prefer the CCM version in diecast. Though I do not have one currently, I do have the D9H. It is truly magnificent. So if I choose to get the pair, I'll go with the CCM version for sure. CAW

This one has a different lifting arrangement, but it should be helpful.

Caterpillar 825B Compactor #135

I wish they would elaborate more about the specific model numbers. The top photo is of a DV43, the photo below is the RT240. Both are Rough Terrain Container Handlers but the DV43 is commonly known as just DV43 while the "RTCH" we refer to is the RT240. I have access to the digital Technical Manual for the DV43 that CypModels is wanting to produce and can get closeup pictures or maybe even a tour if they have a rep willing to come down in the U.S., I just have to find which company has it as I haven't seen one in months.

Very nice find Wouter on the 825B. That model was short lived because NZG sold the tooling, along with the 955L to Joal who mass produced both castings. I'm trying to get my hands on a NZG 825B too.

UPDATE! The making of...a Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader

The Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader is a "one of a kind" custom scale model. Ad used for this project a "spare" Caterpillar 272C Skid Steer Loader which has been released by Classic Construction Models in a limited edition of only 200 pieces. The model is hand crafted from brass in 1:48th scale.
Ad modified the Wheeled Skid Steer Loader version into a Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader version and added (as he always does -)) tons of extra details including a scratch built Caterpillar BR172 Brushcutter.

It is our goal for the coming period in the "Making of...a Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader" to show you how this custom model has been achieved.

Ad will share his building skills through its construction photos with little notes to guide us through his progress. Gradually it shows the making of a unique model of the Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader.
Today I have added the second update of the "The making of ..." This episode Ad his pictures show you how he continues the building of the undercarriage.

Enjoy reading & watching!
