NEWS FLASH! Bauma 2016


The Bauma [abc] is held every three years in Germany and is the largest International Trade Fair for construction vehicles, Cranes, Earthmoving and Construction in Europe. In addition to the new machines in 1:1 are also often and at the same time the new expected little brothers presented in scale 1:50.

In 2016 the 31th Bauma takes place from April 11-17th in Muchen. Off course with the presence of Caterpillar. My collector friend Roger and the man behind the Dutch BouwmachineWeb.com attended the Bauma for almost the entire week.
So if you want to see more of the Bauma 2016 be sure to look at both comprehensive photo albums on BouwmachineWeb.com

Be sure to check out pictures of the LTM 1450 on Hansebube. The swinging counter weight is an interesting concept.

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 fourth update of the "The making of ..." This episode Ad his many pictures show you the building of the scratch made Caterpillar BR172 Brushcutter.

Enjoy reading & watching!

Ad and Wouter

LATEST ADDITION! Caterpillar D9G [RR Models 1:50]

During the Modelshow Europe 2016 I received the latest RR Models addition in my collection which I ordered in 2015 and today I was able to take it to the photo set:

Caterpillar D9G “Jac. Rijk” Tractor-Type Tractor

An amazing unique hand-built and very complete scale model which filled a gap in my Caterpillar D9 series.
More than well worth the wait! This high quality and amazing detailed 1:50 scale model has been built on special request for some Dutch Die Hard fans and is not available to the collecting public and therefore very rare.

My first impression: Must have of the Caterpillar D9 Tractor-Type Tractor that absolutely belongs in my collection. Normally I do not collect company livery versions but because of my connection with this Dutch Earthmoving company this special version was, even the price tag, a must have D9 and to put beside the Caterpillar 657 Wheel-Tractor Scraper in my collection.

Enjoy the first pictures!

I will add more pictures from the Caterpillar D9G “Jac. Rijk Tractor-Type Tractor scale model, machine in 1:1 and background information in the category Track-Type Tractors So stay tuned for more!
