LATEST ADDITION! Caterpillar 988B RTCH [CypModels 1:50]

Already received this spring during the Modelshow Europe 2016 this latest addition in my collection made by CypModels and today I was finally able to take it to the photo set:
  • Caterpillar 988B RTCH Rough Terrain Container Handler
This hand-crafted resin model of the Caterpillar 988B RTCH Rough Terrain Container Handler is only on request available and then custom built for you in the army green livery and for the Die Hard fans as well in the Civil Cat DV43 version as in 1: 1 is converted by the US firm Powermax.

My first impression: an MASTERPIECE scale model and rare addition in my Caterpillar 988 Wheel Loader series. More than well worth the wait! This is a must have for every Caterpillar collector.

Enjoy the first photo! Curious for more? I have added the complete review with more pictures from the Caterpillar 988B RTCH Rough Terrain Container Handler scale model, machine in 1:1 and background information in the category Wheel Loaders

OUT SOON! BAGGERMODELLE 6-2016


imageThe latest edition of BAGGERMODELLE will be out soon! The magazine presses are running while you are reading this. The Magazine will be available half way November 2016.

In this issue, among other interesting articles, a special about the Caterpillar D9T Track-Type Tractor which was recently released from Diecast Masters in their diecast series in 1:50th scale.

In addition, a special writen by Thomas Wilk and the successor of the previous shared Caterpillar D7 Track-Type tractor, the Caterpillar DW10 with No.10 Scraper in 1:24th scale by Reuhl. Initially not designed to be a collector's item but to be a travelling salesmens's sample.

Last but not least more attention for the Buffel B90 Track-Type tractor, although not equipped with a Caterpillar engine but released on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Conrad in 2016 and therefore certainly worthwhile to admire all the pictures.

Baggermodelle is THE full color magazine for collectors of construction machine models, cranes and heavy haulage. The magazine is writen in German. Detailed English translations of the main sections and features for every issue are available on the website and now also available as App or Android for your computer or mobile.
