NEWS FLASH! EBIANUM Digger Museum & Modelshow 2018

26 April 2018

The Eberhard EBIANUM doubles as a construction vehicle museum and a unique venue for all kinds of events.

Memories, understanding, information, experience, discoveries, and a view of the future.

Different is better than better. These feelings and thoughts guided us when we developed the Museum concept. Which adult doesn’t dream of being a child again for a while? This is where such dreams come true, for children in any case – the ideal environment for tuning into an event.

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

12 April 2018

Recently, my friend and photographer photographer Thomas Wilk of TCC Photowork made a number of great pictures on special request of GiftDigger.com for the miniature wrecking bullet in 1:50th scale which is recently released by next-Q-models.

  • Wrecking ball #QA01

The Caterpillar 390F L Hydraulic Excavator from Diecast Masters acted as a tool carrier for the wrecking ball. The scenery has been photographed in such a way that it looks as if the machine is fully at work.

The wrecking ball of next-Q-models is handmade and by using aluminum strong and light. Finished by hand and given a weathered / used appearance. Of course, this wrecking ball is supplied with the corresponding parts (chain, locking nuts and a truck tire).

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.

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!

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.
