I spotted this on Diecast Masters Facebook page today and it's a new 1/50 version of the 797F.

The main difference I can see is the dump body and apparently it's due for release after Spielwarenmesse 2020 which is 29 January-2nd February.

With DM releasing this photo hopefully it's ready to be released soon after Spielwarenmesse.

Dare I say that DM is giving CCM a run for their money? I don't collect mining models but this looks fantastic.

They have really stepped it up if they were to get licensing from Cat for older models, they'd really put competition on CCM.

Chez DM, seule la boite est en métal, quel pourcentage de plastique sur celui-ci?? Quand on pèse les Belaz, on a peur......

Money money money, and that's all

I see this model is arriving with dealers now but I was shocked at the price, especially in Europe.

€379/£350($430) is madness.

It seems a much better price in the USA at $299/£240 but unfortunately shipping and import tax would probably hike that higher(not to mention risk of shipping damage).

I wish DM would explain why there is such a huge price difference because at £350 I've had to walk away from buying it Sad .

If anyone has bought it, it would still be nice to see some photos though.
