    Latest addition Caterpillar D3 Dozer [Diecast Masters 1:50]


    At the end of October I received this latest addition in the "High Line Series" from Diecast Masters in my collection and today I had some time and took it to the photo set:

    Caterpillar D3 Dozer #85673

    Obviously I am very happy with this latest scale model of the Caterpillar D3 Dozer because it is actually the first under license released in 1:50th scale model within the Caterpillar D3 Dozer Series. TOP CHOICE!

    Enjoy the first photos! Curious for more? I have added the complete review with more pictures and a YouTube movie from the scale model, machine in 1:1 and background information in the category Dozers

    Latest addition!

    Arrived at the end of November and have now taken the time to post the first photos of this custom addition from Gertjan's collection:

    Caterpillar 826C Landfill Compactor with CARON Semi-U Trash Blade

    This knock out model of the Caterpillar 826C Landfill Compactor with CARON Semi-U Trash Blade is released in a “New Caterpillar Yellow” Civil version in very limited numbers. Definitely a MUST HAVE next to the previously released standard Caterpillar 826C Landfill Compactor.

    Enjoy the first photo! Curious for more? I have added the complete review with more pictures from the Caterpillar 826C Landfill Compactor with CARON Semi-U Trash Blade version 1:50th scale model in in the category Compactors.

    Worked on a lot of land fill equipment. 826C was a popular machine around here. Changed a lot of those CARON wheel spikes. Don’t miss it all to much. Nice model!

    Latest addition!

    The Caterpillar 330C LME Excavator in 1:50th scale was released by Replimach in 2022 as a custom scale model.

    This custom Caterpillar 330C LME Excavator in 1:50th scale has the Caterpillar 330D Excavator from Norscot as donor base. You understand: A definitely MUST HAVE!

    Very happy and honored to add the Caterpillar 330C LME Excavator to my Caterpillar 330 Series.
