SPOTLIGHT! Caterpillar Comic books

During 1950's Caterpillar Co., Peoria, Illinois distributed through her dealer network "Operators and Maintenance Handbooks" in a Semi-comic book format. These comic books where in fact instructional publications by Caterpillar intended for adult customers using Caterpillar equipment. Most of them where released in English, 32 pages, full color, 8.25-in. x 10.5-in. and printed on semi-slick paper.

In the Mini Movers - Caterpillar Scale Model Group on Facebook we have create a special photo album to share our Caterpillar Comic books.

Besides that we are very curious and want to find out how many Caterpillar comics books are actually published by Caterpillar.
Do you have one that is not listed in our Facebook photo album"Caterpillar Comic books" please let us know.

Thanks for taking the trouble to share this gem on dropbox - a great publication!

What is your 1/50(?) model on the cover - looks like an early crawler loader? EDIT: think I found it - a 977?
