Felipe can’t wait to see that finished 966B. You have a nice collection of the D8s, how are your tracks holding up on your D8s because on the one I have it looks like one side is ready to split.

Now the D8L ARPRA Piramid logo


That's still the "pacman" logo! The pyramid logo was only on the Arpra D8Ns and D8Rs as far as I am aware.

Frusso, that's actually the last of the Pacman generation. They used that livery from 1987 to late 1989 before Cat introduced the new corporate logo for 1990. You can see the block-C on the hood which in 1:1 was a metal badge (zinc plated I believe).

Felipe great job on the 966B custom. The detail on the ripper with the hydraulic lines and how you attached it to the frame on the loader is spot on. The decals came out very nice also along with foot pedals and the entire operators station, however I did not see the key in the ignition. Quinella will probably offer you a considerable amount of money for that one, don’t sell it to him.
Great job
Steve

Love that dozer. Felipe, do you have boxes for all of your models? Do you have a showcase also? Craig

Dear Quinella, good evening!

I have a lot of boxes. However some don't have. This D9G still have and all my EMDs less the L90. I save all box as possible, but some models I got used, so no box.

I have a show case and I have to put my models in position for a good pic. I change many models in my collection and now my showcase is crazy...

Felipe that is a great model, I do have one of these. The detail on that is very nice, it did have some small issues on it when I first got mine but not serious issues like some of the other forum members had on theirs
Nice pictures.

Great looking pieces here. Can anyone give any insight on to how accurate the ripper is on the loader. Looks and seems interesting to me for I have never seen them in this configuration other than track form. Thanks for the info in advance.

What an interesting model that you have there Felipe. The cab is cool. Is that a cage to protect the lights on top? What is with the "Goodrich" logo? Since this model seems to be less known to our members, was it an unsuccessful model for CAT? Felipe, what do you do for your work? Craig

Dear Craig, I just found this pic on web. This machine is not a B but a C version. Here is the link from this machine.
