A D-9 would be neat, but I'd prefer something a bit smaller, D-4, D-6, JD550 etc.

There's this:

You might have to "de-armour" it, but I think that's mainly the cab. 1/35 might be a slightly odd scale, but who's going to notice vs 1/32 cars, since it's so darn big! I don't know of any 1/25 version...

 

bestest,

M.

Make a base D9, then all the attachments to make a D9R, D9T, D9H, D9XW, D9N, etc. :)

Hey Richard, they're not available in the US yet to my knowledge. Lots of people have been buying them from China and Hong Kong. Even though it's 1/35, it's a BIG kit! Has lots of pieces as well!! I'm getting two just as soon as I can find them over here! I'm hoping someone will ofer a resin conversion set to turn it into a regular D9R.

Yeah! Lets have some of those! Then a nice detachable gooseneck lowboy and a Mack Titan to pull them!! Is anybody listening out there? Good pictures Ben, what scale are those? They don't seem like the usual 1:50 we get from Norscot and the like.

Bob,

 

A detachable gooseneck lowboy might very well out sell any trailer kit ever produced. The fact that no model company has ever attempted one in styrene makes me wonder if it's because of the amount of parts involved or if it's the fear of a lack of interest by truck model builders. I think most truck builders would welcome both a DGN Lowboy and any construction equipment. I think we as truck builders can agree that there is an interest in these subjects, the problem is getting a manufacturer to comit to such a project.

Makes sense, I agree.

Hey Bob, they were both purchased off Ebay. The D9T was completely built from scratch with the exception of the tracks. (much more accurate tracks are being made for it right now). The excavator is technically a "toy" but it has been disassembled, a large plastic handle removed that used to reside on top of the boom, then it was painted with Cat paint and reassembled and detailed out. What makes it even more interesting is to my knowledge, only five of them were ever produced. It is an exact copy of the Bruder, 1/16 Cat excavator but it was made by a chinese company with no Bruder logos anywhere on it or the packaging it came in (this was told to me by the seller) He told me he was searching though some type of market when he found a box that simply read "1/24 digging machine". There were five in the box. He bought all five. I bought the last two he had.
