    Hi guys,

    I'm looking to add a 1:50th scale mining shovel to my collection; however, I'm somewhat cheap. (Don't worry, I know they're almost all over $200). And I was wondering if anyone could recommend one that would give me the best "bang for my buck". I'm not really concerned about a particular OEM at this point. I did just order a Cat 365L FS, but thats not really a "mining" shovel.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Good 1/50 Mining Shovek

    May I heartily recommend the NZG Liebherr 9240.
    a. Its not too expensive
    b. Its fully detailed, hoses, good undercarriage, interior, FOPS - even a fire suppression system.
    c. You can get it either as a face shovel or backhoe depending on your preference.
    d. Its a way better model than the larger Conrad Liebherr R996
    e. Its light years ahead of anything else in the price range including the rather crudely detailed Norscot models.
    You won't be disappointed:drinkup

    It seems Liebherr has different model numbers for the same machine, maybe US vs other countries. But several people recommend the NZG Liebherr 994B (9350) and also the Komatsu PC3000.

    Your price might be off just a tad on the 495HR. Mine is orangle and blue and has the matching blast hole drill and it set me back just under 1,000$.

    Yeah the shovel was 695.00 and the blast hole drill was 495.00. Both are awesome models though. Hey the wife bought me the blast hole drill.
