My model does not look as on the photo on the packaging Whatever

I made some changes to the kit.The biggest difference is probably the custom build wheels and the steering.

It is 1/50 scale or something close to this,maybe 1/48 like CCM models.There is also a wheel loader in this line of models in the same scale and a elevating scraper.But that is defenitely smaller scale (1/60 scale).

Wow, that looks fantastic! It's amazing that these kits are still being produced by Heller 40+ years after originally being released by Lindberg as the "Mighty Mover Dump Truck". While you are correct that it represents the Wabco 35C, it is 1:44 scale. The 300 loader is 1:40 and as you noted the 333FT scraper is 1:60. The scale was noted on some boxes and instruction sheets, but not all (and these came in many different boxes over the years). At one point the 35C model was sold as "Big Mo" and the box was marked 1:40 which is not correct. But, don't take my word for it?

That is insane. I cannot imagine making that scraper out of all those parts though. Great job janh. How old is the kit?
