3rd Day of Construction Gifts: Classic Cat 5230, D9L construction models

Cat construction models [1]

These are no cheap tin toys but meticulously detailed scale models of classic Caterpillar machinery from Classic Construction Models. First up is a beautiful, high-detailed brass model of a Cat 5230 mining shovel [2]with realistic fire suppression system, air intakes, engine exhausts work lights assembly hooks and access panels. The operator’s cab is fully detailed, access doors open for views of a detailed engine and hydraulics and the metal tracks are individually linked. The scale is 1:87 and the model is 8 inches long. At $1,395 though, it’ll run you a pretty penny [2]. However, only 260 are being made.

For those who’d like to surprise their special someone with a more-reasonably priced but still awesome machine model, there’s the Cat D9L [3]. Built to capture as much detail as the original D9L that was introduced back in 1980, this model features individually linked metal tracks with tensioners, an articulated blade, a detailed cab interior and accurate markings. The scale is 1:48 and it measures 8 inches long. It runs $189.95 and only 750 will be made. [3]
