jamiescotland,

Nice models.
That's the first time I see that Richier excavator and the Aveling-Barford dumper.
Who is producing these? Are they both in a 1/50 scale?

Cheers.
Guy

Yeah, Jamie is back!

I jhave noticed the Rust-On-Bycurys and I like the massive tracks. Loooks very sturdy. Is this the same green you used on your 40-H? I plan buying on and repaint the black cylinders. Do you have a color code or something?

And the 1000 CK, Jamie, man, really... This is art.

A question about the H485 surfaces in my mind: So, Soldering is not that difficult, I have Bruder tracks and so forth. How did you mount the railings onto the shovel. Cut away the old ones and drill new holes?


Best regards,
Max

Thanks Max. Yes, but the railings off with pliers/snips, then file the stubs down flat. You can then drill small holes for the new railings.
As for the Bruder tracks, it's a lot of work to sand off the grousers. If you can be bothered and have a belt sander, the end result is fine. If you don't have a belt sander, forget it! Best bet is to buy a set of Komatsu PC8000 tracks (only 38 euros a set) and they fit like a dream. Got some on my white 485 and my Komastu 485 too. They look great!

Hi Guy, the Richier is made up from the parts bin! The Aveling dumper was a Dinky and I added a few bits and bobs.

Just fitted compactor wheels to this 988 loader that was missing its front wheels.
All good fun!

The Bucyrus colours I'm using are:

Montana Gold Banana 1030
Montana Gold Royal Red 3060
Montana Hardcore Forest Green RV-251

Yep, same colours for all my Bucyrus models. The yellow is quite saturated, but I prefer it to the more vintage faded looking pale yellow that some machines are.

Awesome work, I also love the detailing on the Poclain.

You certainly have good skills there!

Your paint skills are impressive, especially considering the fact that you use rattle can. I'm constantly blown away by how good your models look.

What colors did you use for the Poclain?

The 988 model is the factory finish, I just painted the wheels (off a knackered Norscot 936 I think). The 988 was in a bit of a sorry state when I bought it - some broken bits and missing both front wheels. This was my best solution!

Love these Jamie - amazing work as always. The Poclain 1000 is especially nice. Around 30 years ago I watched a huge Case Poclain excavator in Aberdeen city centre and I remember it like it was yesterday!

Great work done on those customs, agree with The Q that compactor looks great. What model are the compactor wheels off?

Sorry Jamie skipped right over the post that mentioned where the compactor wheels came from, getting on in age like somebody else in this post.
