Just received my model and have to say first impressions are very good,not as detailed as the Hitachi 870 with none of the engine grills being perforated but on a par with the liebherr 970.
A bit disappointed with some of the paint finish but still a great model,will post pics soon.

Yes, although I've seen a number of photos it's nice to get a "true-to-life review" so if you can share some more thoughts and photos that would be great.

I have the WSI Liebherr R970 and it's a nice detailed model but it lacks the solid feel you get with Conrad.

Having real trouble uploading pics, I've created a board on Pinterest entitled Volvo EC950, hopefully you can find them there. Nice surprise to find the bucket is bolted on not riveted.

I don't think you will find another diecast excavator model that detailed again. I have taken the 870 completely apart and the amount of engine detail they put in it is simply ridiculous. There is a ton of detail in the engine you cannot see from the outside.

Mine is on the way too.

As Max said I doubt we will see another Hitachi 870 again. It puts almost all other model excavators to shame I think at that price point.

I was a little sad to see the the CW was not removable like the 870 is. Would have made for a great load if it was!

There have been loads of photos and real life reviews on Facebook so I am confident its a decent model. I much prefer the detail of a model against a lump of heavy metal! Just waiting on the New Year for the next batch now!

Don't get me wrong it's a cracking model and very happy with it. Put a Gaz Evans bucket on it this morning and looks pretty cool!

Looks like a very beautiful model and that’s a great feature that the bucket is removable.

Just thought I’d share a WSI YouTube video (not much on their channel yet), but provides some detail shots and a 360 around the model.

Take care and all the best.
