Default CATERPILLAR 390D LME 1:8

Hello together,

I am Andreas from Nuremberg in Germany. I am 39 old. My hobby RC modeling in scale 1:8 I`ll do since 12 years. I have found this forum a few days ago.

I want to show you my two models I have build. The first model was a John Deere 9560R. For that model I build round About six years. It is not finished yet.

Here are two Videos of the John Deere 9560R scale 1:8.

https://youtu.be/qowjj_ZpcZY

https://youtu.be/-0EoOj4Sw3A

The second model is a CATERPILLAR 390D 1:8. This is my actual Project.
Here some Videos of my CAT:

https://youtu.be/1O5HrQ4HcIU

So enjoy it. Sorry for my english. I hope you can understand me.

On my channel you can find the latest work.

Hi Andreas, impressive! Been reading up on your build on the modell-baustelle forum.

Hope you don't mind I post the link for those interested. Really worth checking out if only just for the pictures.

If you like my channel and you don`t want to miss the next steps, please subscripe to it.

I find it fantastic to share this nice Hobby with guys all other the world.

So for me it is interesting where are you from. So maybe some of you have fun to tell me where are they from.

As I told I am from nuremberg in Germany. In europe espacially Germany, Austria and Switzerland there are a lot of people doing that hobby - bulding RC construction Equipment. Maybe you know the big companies like Premacon and scaleart?

Thank you guys.

Hello Andreas and welcome

That 390 is massive in 1:8 scale, how much it weights ?
Great work with both of your models.

Hello,

Thanks to all for that good feedback. The weiht is round about 180kg. The handling is not easy. Maybe I can make a actual Video driving up and down my workbench. This is always very exciting for me, because I must be very careful that the cat does not slip to one side. When this will happen I must jump away, I can not prevent it.....

Thank you for suscriping. Greetings back to Finland

Hello,

Since I am currently still waiting for parts, I let the CAT run again today. This time I filmed the ascent and descent on my workbench for you. This is always a really exciting thing for me. If the excavator starts to slide here, I can only jump to the side ....
But everything went well again this time. I only fear the aluminum ramps will not survive forever. But see for yourself …

Yes the Ramps are very good. But I think when I use them more often for my CAT they will not survive for ever. . .

Hello everybody,

I have created a new video for you about the construction of the Caterpillar 390D. I hope you like it. The nice thing is that you can see for yourself what you've already done and how time has passed ....

Hello everybody,

now it was finally a bit further on the CAT. For one thing, I redesigned the ventilation grilles and started with the cabin. Visually makes a difference if there is a cabin ...

But see for yourself.

































Have a nice Sunday.
