“I’ve been a model equipment and real equipment lover since before I could walk,” says John Gibson. “I was even named after John Deere!” John’s favorite model is his Ertl 1:50 Deere 470 GLC excavator. “I like it because of it’s price, detail, functionality and build quality,” he says, saying it was around $50, and citing details such as hydraulic lines, steps and wide triple grouser tracks. “It also has a hood that opens to show a nicely detailed engine and smooth 360-degree rotation. My more expensive models are incredibly fragile, but this one balances detail and build quality nicely.”
