Steve,

I only cut the top part of the front mudflaps and changed the Corgi 5th wheel to one of my usual white medal model, so that I could pin the semi-trailer on the tractor.

modelmaniac,

You have probably noticed that I have some years of painting still "on the shelf", so there is no plan to change the color of the CAT labelled units: I hope to complete their trailers one day and get them a final coat of paint, that's all.

Regards.

Steve,

Universal Hobbies will produce, from September 2019, the Komatsu WB97S-8 backhoe, having same tires front and rear: https://www.universalhobbies.biz/fr/195-echelle-150#
Jean-Jacques' model can't be this one, as we still are in August, so I suppose that he bought the Accurate Die-cast Ltd version: http://www.accuratediecast.com/150-scale/751-komatsu-wb97s-8-backhoe-loader-3539188139006.html

I hope this helps.

Steve,

I have to amend what I stated just above: Universal Hobbies have already produced the WB97S version ( https://www.miniature-construction-world.co.uk/komatsu-wb97s.html ) and plan to get the evolution 8 available soon.
So the model shown is certainly an UH product, looking at its black front mudguards.

Cheers.
Guy

Guy thanks for the information on that Komatsu, I did not realize that they produced a machine like that. I think Q kept that information from me.
