They are much better wheels.
Apart from wheels it is not a bad little model considering it came out when the JCB 3 was a current product !
I was going to combine it with an Oxford Fordson Major Skid but never got round to it. (like many other projects , perhaps now is the time :D )

.... that’s it for a bit, have had to order some new paints ! all dried up, they don’t make them like they used to, only had that yellow since the early 80s ! ( wheels only held on with blue tack currently )

I never came across this model as a digger mad kid despite re-fighting the second world war with lots of other airfix kits !
I think it was marketed more to the model rail crowd as a Lowmac wagon and was never seen in Redcar Woolies or model shop :D
Caught up with it many years later when Dapol started selling it as a stand alone.
