Looks like at least 4 International Trucks made the cut from Diecast Masters. Looks like 2 versions of the HX520, Tandem and Tridem, paired with 3+1 and 3+2 Lowboys, as well as some sort of Mixer and dump truck variant.


I believe they're HX620's - at least, the tractor is.


What ever they are, does any one have any pictures?

OK, confusion has set in. So are we going to have access to buying this here in North America or are these samples all for nothing? I have tried to get a couple of people to answer my question earlier, to no avail. Is Diecast Masters going to make these to be sold?


YES! These will be available to purchase from model dealers in the near future. There is no info on anything yet as the Toy Fair was the first introduction to the hobby, dealer and customer network with actual prototypes being shown.

Saw some shots of the 349FL XE and it looks really good as well.......only downfall is there is no pin grabber on it. d'oh!

Anyone notice that the lowboy hooked to the International tractor is new as well?

the lowboy looks like a new casting and if you look at the back of the lowboy it looks like at least a 1 axle stinger hooked to it, the 349FL XE looks promising also

Not a great year for crane collectors.

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

That D11T is lovely! Could just about be a CCM piece I reckon. I'm sure the R9150 will be superb too with a lick of paint

According to Wouter (Mini Movers), The International's are suppose to launch sometime around Q3 (September/October) 2018. That is for the HX620 and the HX520. They are confirmed.

Here is the link to the picture he posted on Facebook:

First of all, thanks Paul for posting those great pic's from Steffen. I've been waiting along time after seeing the 9150 introduced at the Minexpo a number of years ago for someone to make the model. Glad its WSI. Should be fantastic. Also by the looks of the D 11 , Diecastmasters upped their game. The 349 could be a good piece to customize. Mike

Uh oh, better save my pennies. Looks like 2 hood/bumper versions on the tractor. I like the flip extension on the gooseneck!

Can we get a step deck though?!? I have a lot of crane parts to transport!!!

I do like them new International Rigs. The fenders on the rear look great in the prototype. I like the extender stinger axles as well. Maybe a good year for trucks maybe.

Was there any thing in 1/87 for trucks or heavy equipment announced at the show? Any surprise from DM maybe?
