My original plan was to make a 1:50 model of this beautiful new machine, however I decided to proceed at 1:32 because of the potential for greater detail.

I am really struggling to find detailed reference material for the R9150 but the bucket was no problem so I decided to start with it, and it is now ready to be painted after approximately two days of detailing work. Cool

Is the 9150 an updated version of the 9100 or a different machine due to it's setup? From what I can see, the 9150 appears to have the boom cylinders inverted like on the larger shovels and perhaps is aimed more at a hard rock application?

That aside, the scratch building is absolutely stunning! I can't wait to see updated images. Thanks for posting!!

I noticed that the 9100 is listed as 108 - 112t and is listed with a smaller bucket. The 9150 as 127 - 130t, I guess there is quite a difference.

The R9150 is the successor of the R984.

The R9150 is indeed the successor to the 984. It looks a lot like the R9100 but it is larger and the boom is very different (six cylinders vs. four on the R9100). I love the dogbone linkage design on the R9150 - it is mounted on top of the stick rather than through it.

Here is the bucket painted - I still have to tidy it up a little and probably apply a coat or two of gloss varnish, but I'm very happy with it. Next will be the stick!

oh la la what a nice project , very well done , I do not understand why you say you can peut more details on 1/32 than 1/50 , I know it is harder when smaller.

none the less you are a talented person .

Thanks for the kind words everybody. Smile

@towoc99, it is easier to fit more detail into a larger model; I too have seen very detailed 1:87 models but at that scale it becomes impractical and too much work. I will be making the crawlers from scratch, link by link... never seen that in 1:50 before. ;)

Progress-wise, I have spent several hours on the stick and am now at a stage where I can test fit the linkage for the bucket. This has been extremely difficult to build with just a pencil and a knife, but I'm happy with the progress and looking forward to assembling the cylinders and gooseneck.

Can't believe I missed this post. This excavator is going to be something. Well done.

Agreed!, and at 1/32 scale quite a size too.

The bucket looks amazing - and that's just the bucket Smile

Acually, the 996 is closer to 700tons than 600tons. Wouldnt be surprised that it will be called 9650.

Beautiful work so far! This is going to be a nice build to watch.

I'd actually expect the number of the new machine to be the 9700. What I am curious about, is whether the new machine will retain a right hand cab, or progress to the left hand cab as all of their new models have.

Yes that is a possibility, after all the 996B weighs about 670tons. Maybe this means that Liebherr will intruduce a model between the 995 (9450?) and 996B (9700?)? Quite a gap between the 995 and 996 at the moment.

Hey Davie82, impresive quality. Question, how are you doing this, 3-D printing, CNC, or hand work?

Hey Davie82

That is the start of something very unique and I must say I am jealous of your workmanship!! Nice one mate! Don't be surprised if the guys from the Liebherr factory in Colmar offer you a handsome sum of $$$ for this model.

That bucket is an exact replica of the actual one on the unit exhibited at Minexpo last year.Looking forward to the build progress.
