NEWS FLASH! Wrecking ball [next-Q-models 1:50]

12 April 2018

Onlangs maakte mijn vriend en vakfotograaf fotograaf Thomas Wilk van TCC Photowork voor GiftDigger.com een aantal schitterende foto´s van de recent door next-Q-models uitgebrachte miniatuur sloopkogel in 1:50.

  • Wrecking ball #QA01

De Caterpillar 390F L Hydraulische graafmachine van Diecast Masters fungeerde als werktuigdrager voor de sloopkogel. Het geheel is dusdanig op de foto gezet dat het net lijkt of hij volop aan het werk is.

De sloopkogel van next-Q-models is handgemaakt en door het toepassen van aluminium sterk en licht. Met de hand afgewerkt en een verweerd/gebruikt uiterlijk gegeven. Natuurlijk wordt deze sloopkogel geleverd met de bijbehorende onderdelen (ketting, sluitringen en vrachtwagenband).

Highly recommended!www.GiftDigger.com

ANNOUNCEMENT! Caterpillar "Next Gen" 320 Series [Diecast Masters 1:50]

30 March 2018

Diecast Masters has in accordance of the first annoucement and the worldwide revealing of the 2018 line up at the International Toy Fair aka Spielwarenmesse 2018 announced their next new to release Caterpillar scale models starting from Q2-2018 in their 1:50th scale diecast "High Line Series":

  • Caterpillar 320 Hydraulic Excavator #85569
  • Caterpillar 323 Hydraulic Excavator #85570
  • Caterpillar 320 CG Hydraulic Excavator #85571

The Caterpillar 320 Series, also announced as the "Next Gen" Caterpillar Track-Type Hydraulic Excavators are the successors to the "F" Series in 1:1th scale, but because Caterpillar has changed his machine type numbering and stopped adding the succescor letter it will not appear as the "G" Series.

Key Features of the Caterpillar 320 Series Track-Type Hydraulic Excavators are a detailed cab interior, including "Bob" the operator. Authentic Cat Machine Yellow paint and trade dress. Functional boom, stick and bucket. Finishing touch are the authentic railings, grab rails and hydraulic hoses. I personally find it a missed opportunity that the sticks are not equipped with a quick release coupler to give the collector an option to remove the standard bucket for another (Caterpillar) Bucket or Work Tool.

Of course it should be a Caterpillar: The first what came up was to release the Caterpillar AG-6 (Ad Gevers) but there was an even better candidate. Besides his greatest passion: the Caterpillar D9 Track-Type Tractor, Ad is also fascinated by the unique Caterpillar S-D8lgp Dozer and therefore that only could be his choice!

  • Caterpillar S-D8lgp Track-Type Tractor "Mary-Ann" (Marian)

This ready and painted model in 1:50th scale is manufactured in cooperation with FanKit Models, due to the good experience with the construction of the Delta PL95H pipelayer they have be choosen to produce a small and limited serie of 50 pieces. The resin Tack-Type Tractor will be equipped with metal tracks.
