Bucket Wheel Excavator Model

Post #1 by Ian Fletcher1970 » Sun Feb 10, 2013 5:37 pm

Thought I'd share a pic of the beginning of my latest project - Revell 1/200 scale O and K Bucket Wheel excavator. Will update the post as progress occurs!

Hi Jeremy,
It's an old one probably from early to mid 80's that I picked up off E-Bay!

Nice model there Ian and it looks to be rather on the large side, how long is it?
