Haha the models are produced in Brazil where Frusso is coming from . So I think it is easy for him to buy so many Cat D8k’s

Not many, Basketball Man.

Most of these models I'm showing here are in the United States. I chage most of them for other models with friend from USA.

Here in Brazil it is not difficult to find D8ks if you know how to look.

It is easy to find damaged models for renovation.

Difficult to find in excellent condition. In my collection I have 3 original D8ks, one with yellow tracks, one with black tracks and one red.

The other models are modified as you can see in my post.

My next project is to work on a pair of forest D8ks that will be awesome if they go away as I imagine!

Very happy to see this one on DHS auction!

https://www.proxibid.com/aspr/Caterpillar-966C-Wheel-Loader-Custom-White/42964460/LotDetail.asp?lid=42964460

It was one of the first ever made by me and Bernardo. It was a kit from ARPRA, not a assembled model. The worst kit of ever! To much job to assemble and Bernardo was learning how to paint models. Everything has a begin! However looks nice after done!

Hello Felipe,

slowly I begin to see why Arpras D8Ks are so sky-high regarding their prices. You simply dried up the market. LOL That is a great collection of D8Ks, mate. I especially like the fire fighting version.

This D9G with FLECO roof and angle blade, man, you can seriously tear some jungle down with this CAT! I know, I know, taking down trees is a thing most people wouldn't support in these days. But since my youth, I got a fascination for clearing jungle with big CATs and an anchor chain. Keep it rolling! Great stuff!

Your operators stations are incredible, you must have sore eyes after completing one. I have to wear 8 pairs of glasses when I try customizing small items that make a big difference. Very nice attention to detail.

Good morning Max! I am with a project of a pair of Brazilian forestry tractors that will meet your expectations. At the moment I am finalizing a Fiatallis 41B and in the sequence I will take these two tractors that will be unique. I believe that until the beginning of the summer of Brazil or the winter of the USA you will see them here!

Yuuup, I think that one might be my favorite. You have also convinced me to use airbrush for my current project. I usually rattle can all my stuff, but the finish on these are just too even to ignore.

Great work, that is very nice. I’m going down into the basement to throw my International TD 25 in the trash.

You will see the difference Dex.

I send all my models to a friend to paint, but looks great! I hate live in a flat!
