UPDATE! The making of...a Caterpillar D10T with Push Blade

Post #161 by kwabbus » Sun Oct 26, 2014 7:32 pm

UPDATE! The making of...a Caterpillar D10T with Push Blade

Custom scale model builder Gertjan Veld has recently started his next project of building a Caterpillar D10T Track-Type Tractor with Push Blade by using the Caterpillar D10T Track-Type Tractor from Norscot in 1:50th scale.

Today I added the third update of this "The making of... a Caterpillar D10T Track-Type Tractor with Push Blade". This episode shows you how Gertjan Veld takes the original scale model from Norscot and both kits in hand and makes some major adjustments at some points and improves to end up as accurate as possible. You will be amazed with the high standards he sets!

It is our goal for the coming period in the "Making of...a Caterpillar D10T Track-Type Tractor with Push Blade" to show you how this custom model will be achieved.

Gertjan will share his building skills through its construction photos with little notes to keep us informed of his progress. Gradually it shows the making of a unique model of the Caterpillar D10T Track-Type Tractor with Push Blade.

Enjoy reading & watching!

Gertjan and Wouter

Post #162 by kwabbus » Sat Nov 01, 2014 6:57 pm

NEWS FLASH! MEGA Watertanker Set

Within our group of Caterpillar collectors are builders who built various custom versions of Watertankers.

This gave us the idea to see if there might be need to bring a complete set, consisting of spray heads and a spray gun, based on the brand MEGA, the specialist from America for over 30 years and market leader in the field of Watertankers built on the chassis of existing OEM construction machines.

MEGA Watertanker Set

The MEGA Watertanker Set will as yet consist of four spray heads and a spray gun and casted from white metal material. The set can be applied to an Caterpillar Articulated Dump Truck, Off-highway Truck or Wheel Tractor-Scraper.

On the pictures you can see examples of the masters of the spray heads and the spray gun which are going to be used to make the molds.

If you are interested feel free to sign up without any obligations through info@minimovers.nl and we will keep you further informed of the status of this project.

We are looking forward for your reactions,

Gertjan, Ad and Wouter

LATEST ADDITION! Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader [Custom 1:48]

Post #167 by kwabbus » Sat Dec 27, 2014 8:37 pm

LATEST ADDITION! Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader [Custom 1:48]

This Christmas weekend I visited one of my best friends and fellow Caterpillar scale model collectors and took home the latest addition in my collection and directly took it to the photo set:

Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader

The Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader is a "one of a kind" custom scale model. Ad used for this project a "spare" Caterpillar 272C Skid Steer Loader which has been released by Classic Construction Models in a limited edition of only 200 pieces.
The model is hand crafted from brass in 1:48th scale.

He modified the Wheeled Skid Steer Loader version into a Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader version and added (as he always does -)) tons of extra details including a scratch built Caterpillar BR172 Brushcutter.
As you can see it turned into a true masterpiece and a very valuable and unique addition to my Caterpillar collection!

Curious to see how this model is made then check out "The Making of...Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader" and see how Ad created for me this one of a kind custom model of the Caterpillar 289C Compact Track Loader.
