    Wow, you guys have some amazing collections!
    This is my first post and I just want to introduce myself. My name is Scott and I have just started up www.ConstructionHobbyShop.com. We currently have about 30 Norscot CAT models and plan to expand to their full line as well as Komatsu and other models from First Gear, John Deere, and more. We do our best to offer the lowest possible prices and outstanding customer service. My intention is not to spam this forum, but just to let those who are interested in die-cast models that we are here to serve your needs as best as we can.

    We hope to see you soon at http://www.constructionhobbyshop.com

    By the way, we also have a coupon good for $5.00 off your first order of $50 or more - just enter INTRO550 during checkout for the discount.

    Thanks
    Scott

    I was wondering if anybody makes custom models in 1:87 or H.O. scale? I'm trying to model a scrap shredder and would like to model a Kibri 972 excavator with a big Labounty shear.

    Technically it's one of your competitors, but the posters probably won't mind.

    Glad to have another resource,

    I'm not able to post a new message but if anyone is interested in selling an excavator with a thumb or a backhoe with a thumb please contact me ASAP. It's the only thing my son is looking for for Christmas and I can't find anything!! Any help is appreciated. Please contact me with any offers to sell one at hollyhubbs@comcast.net. Thank you

    Yeah tracked excavators - backhoes, tracked loaders & dozers and wheel loaders make up a majority of my collection thats for sure.
    I have a few scrapers, graders, a Clamshell digger and a few other things like tippers and low loaders. Certainly would like a lot more but finances wont permit it at the moment.! Ah well, hopefully get a few later on. So many good ones to choose from, now thats the hard part!

    Hi does Mark Savage still build models? If so do you know how to get ahold of him?

    Thanks
