Don't normally collect mining models these days but this one found its way into my collection:















































Quite an impressive model!

Nice work on the pics! The labeling detail is great!

Hello Paul,

Thanks for sharing. I saw it the first time at bauma this year and we can easily see why you added it to your collection. It is a great model. Not much left for improvements. Grease lines maybe, but that's it.

Best regards
Max

Lovely model. I think it'd look even better in Liebherr Yellow, but that's just me. Also some weathering would really set it off, but again that's personal preference.

Thanks for sharing Paul!

I’d probably agree on both points, but I’ve not seen a yellow 1:1 version. Weathering would be great but I don’t have the skills for that!

There's at least this one in Russia, but any Liebherr excavator painted yellow MUST HAVE a white cab!!

Hadn’t seen that one but I doubt WSI would make the extra tooling for the raised cab. But if Liebherr want a model of a yellow version then who knows!
