The resin-made model didn't like it at all and now awaits a huge repair operation.

Outstanding modelling, as usual. Unfortunate news on the Belaz but perhaps it will make for some interesting garage scenes!

For those who are interested in such a large dumper, please note that the BelAZ 75710 claimed payload is 450 tonnes and that its dump body is given for up to 368.3 m3 of material.

Link to the "Wikipedia" dumper page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BelAZ_75710 and to "Lectura Specs" specifications (in French, sorry!): https://www.lectura-specs.fr/fr/modele/machines-de-chantier/dumpers-a-benne-arriere-belaz/75710-11738579

Talk about dedication to detail, those wheel covers are terrific. But really isn't everything in this display outstanding? Descriptions are spot on too. Thanks Guy. CAW

After almost one year without any outstanding news from LorraMine, a recent update from Denis was indicating the arrival on site of a new bulldozer, the 183 tonnes Acco, built originally in Italy beginning of the eighties for some civil works in Libya. It remained idle in Northern Italy since, because of embargo constraints with the country then ruled by Colonel Khadafi.
That's where it was found and bought by LorraMine Management, then transported by ALE Heavylift to the French open-cast location:







For those who want to know more about that super bulldozer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acco_super_bulldozer

What a brilliant setup - just a beautiful combination with the Ale trucks and the monster dozer!

Guy: Who made the model of the ACCO dozer? It's certainly incredible. CAW

Craig,

The bulldozer is produced by Trilex Modelli, a small Italian model company concentrating mainly on Italian stuff. They have produced trucks (Astra, FIAT or IVECO), civil equipment (O&K, Acco) and a few Italian heavy haulage trucks (in Fagioli livery for example).
Most of their models can be bought from Gift Models but all seem to be quite expensive (to me, at least!): https://www.giftmodels.it/shop/en/200-trilex-modelli

I hope it helps.

Denis sent me an e.mail recently with some updates from LorraMine: "[...] As at home rehab. works are now nearing completion, I have gone back a little bit to the mining dio.
I have just completed the unloading of the Acco bulldozer in front of the mining offices and I leave it to you to get our American "colleagues" to discover it (...]"


Let's start with the Acco bulldozer - for size comparison purposes only - displayed on the LorraMine site with 2 other mining "giants":
