Finally got around to finishing this shovel - it had been sitting half-done for a while. Thanks to Paul for the original model.

Thanks. I made the fire equipment. I normally get a production line going and make 20 or 30 in one go. Running low again!
They're just styrene tube with a half bead (from a craft shop) glued on top and a little regulator and handle made from styrene. The pipe is fine elctrical wire or on the bigger units brass wire.

WOW what a beautiful model, very well done and the detail amazing. Thank You for sharing !!

Yes I own a lot of Norscot Cat models they remind me of my many good years working for a Cat Dealer. Going out to the back forty after work playing with used equipment just moving dirt around

Great job! Considering the condition it was in when I sent it to you, it's quite amazing what you've done.

The paint job and details are awesome, but I am most impressed by all the hydraulic system. To mo knowledge, Conrad models never have such detailed parts. I assume these were customized by you. Nice job.

They do now Stephane, but this was an older model from the late 80s/early 90s. I could've spent more time on the hydraulics and got more accuracy and detail, but I haven't been doing much modelling recently, so my patience needs building up again!
On with my 1:87 P&H 2800 which has also been sat around for months half-done

Hey Jamie,

as usual: Super-sharp, nice and clean custom! Realllly cool. My DEAMG is still sitting on the shelf waiting for customizing, but as I have started working and operating the real machines, scale modeling is put to a halt. But when I see the cool stuff you guys turn out here, it's itching in my fingers!

Keep it coming!

Cheers,

Max
