8 July 2021

Diecast Masters has in accordance of the first annoucement of the 2021 line up announcend the next new to release Caterpillar scale model in their 1:50th scale diecast "Highline Series":

  • Caterpillar 150 “Next Gen” Modern Hex Motor Grader #85667

NEW NAMES. MORE CHOICES FOR PRODUCTIVITY AND COMFORT.

Caterpillar Motorgraders lead the way when it comes to multitasking. A Motor Grader can complete slopes, mix aggregate and other materials, mow or clean a trench, clear snow, and chamfer a slope. No matter the size of the job, there is always a Caterpillar Motorgrader to handle it. At the end of 2020, Caterpillar simplified the naming convention for its entire range of Motorgraders

The most striking thing about the new Caterpillar Motorgrader series nomenclature is not so much that the "M" in the Motorgrader type number has now been dropped, that implementation was already well underway within the Caterpillar machine program, but the fact that the existing 140M and 140M3 to be completely converted into the new 150!

Custom scale model builder Matteo from Trilex Modelli is in the final stages and making good progress on one of his latest projects: Building a ACCO Super Bulldozer in 1:50th scale.

The ACCO Super Bulldozer is the largest and most powerful Track-Type Tractor ever made. It was built in Italy, by the Umberto Acco company. The ACCO super bulldozer was constructed mainly of Caterpillar parts. This bulldozer has a gross weight of 183 tons and is powered by two 675hp Caterpillar engines and has a dozer blade that is 23 ft.

Today time for an update of this "The making of... a ACCO Super Dozer" where Matteo will guide you by the complete design and construction process of this unique scale model, and the end result shall eventually, as a real custom builder wants to achieve display the 1: 1 machine as naturally as possible. You will be amazed with the high standards he sets!

Matteo shares his building skills through its construction photos with little notes to keep us informed of the building process. Gradually it shows the making of a unique model of the ACCO Super Dozer and a for me personally a unique addition to my PoweredBy Caterpillar collection!
