The first samples of the upcoming Cat® 973 model in 1:48 scale die-cast have been delivered! After a thorough review, both by us and Caterpillar®, the necessary modifications have been addressed and new 3D parts drawings created.
From here, our manufacturer will implement these changes, and produce a final pre-production sample model for approval.
Retail price on the 973 has been set at $224.95 – although we are too early in the process to determine availability, we hope to have them here in the 2nd Quarter of 2019. We will provide progress updates as this project develops.
