Sarens LR 1600/2? God dammit just when I am spending all my cash on a rifle!!

If it's mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and automated I can build it.

From the WSI YouTube page: Volvo A60H

Looks like a solid model... would have been nice to see under the hood... and hopefully the tip angle on the dump body is a bit better on the production model.

Lets just hope the steering is better than on their other models. You would think by now they would have made improvements.

Volvo A60H looks like a really nice model, but how can you justify paying the price tag for this model. Which looks to be in the $174.99 to $182.99 range. That is way too much for a ADT. Unless it is a Classic Construction Model. I think the companies are trying to price their models out of the model collectors price range. I understand inflation, but I don't know about everyone else, but I just can't see paying this much for an ADT. I don't know, I might eat my words on this one and buy one, but it is way, way down on my list.

Completely agree on the price of the A60H, €100-€120 and it would be a great model, guess I won't be playing Hoffmans this year


Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

... It's better to be silent and thought a fool, then to speak up and remove all doubt

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

Totally agree. I remember paying less than half that price, not so long ago (less than 5 years) for a A40E, back when Motorart still did great models with 95% die cast metal content, Conrad made durable and not too pricey models, then WSI had detailed models WITHOUT quality issue.
That was also before some start buying CCM models like investing in stock market. Fortunately, there are still great models out there, if one can afford the price tag.

Nope, indeed. But CCM is in its own class. Limited editions, huge details and museum quality. Nothing to compare with the average stuff.

I hear talk of some new European kobelco excavators coming out, some zero tails and some 30-50 tons too. Sucks they aren’t making them for the North American market.

Most detailed excavator to date... Hitachi 870.... by WSI. Not saying that the A60 will be as good, but saying what can be done for reasonable money

I can agree, to a point-the Hitachi 470 gives it a run for it's money. The only downfall the 470 has vs. the 870 is that the bucket ins't as easily removable as the 870.

I’m over CCM. Wsi has the same detail and quality. Yeah the run numbers are low for ccm but there quality is starting too slip. The 6015 are the proof. Half were all jacked up and everyone was all butt hurt.
