Since I last posted, my collection has had a few new additions. I buy better models these days, quality rather than quantity.

Cat 660 scraper

983 track loader

a pair of 637E push pull scrapers

Cat D10 pushcat, and another one with a 3 shank ripper

2 new 657B push pull scrapers due to arrive any time now.

I Diecast Masters 627K

 

Yes I'm still alive and finally done with the 7 day a week work grind, so I'll try to drop in more often than in the last few....YEARS!!

You never now bruce.. stranger things have happened. Some matchbox collectors get every version of a particular model they can, including wheel and color variations, box changes, etc.

Classic Construction Models makes these.. just got my D9H with the straight blade and ripper after a three year wait. CCM sent the first batch of these back to the manufacturer because they were displeased with the samples.. all were destroyed and started over from scratch. How many other manufacturers of models go that far?

 

Alan,

Several years ago, (before I was on the BOD by the way), ACMOC sold the Norscott R2 model.  When I received my copies, they tracks were on backwards.  I contacted a board member and advised him of the fault.  Norscott took them all back and returned them as corrected.  I kept mine with the backwards tracks.  I thought they may be worth more sometime in the future.  (Finger's crossed)

The D9's and 666's are of diecast and resin construction, thus affordable. Their brass models, while verrrry nice, require government funding for most of us!

Got the D9's and the 666 from a place called D & S Enterprises.  Got the secretary looking for a name and address.  The models are made by CCM (Classic Construction Models)   In Beaverton Oregon.  I have purchased a lot from them.  All brass and they pay attention to details.

Where'd the '9s come from? Who makes them?

Bring those to the next fling and we can set up a sand box inside if it gets rained out.
