Announcing the latest model to join our ever-expanding collection of museum-quality replicas, the D8 2U from brass in 1:24 scale.  Standing at approximately 9.6″ long x 5.6″ wide x 3.6″ tall, this highly-detailed model will capture the attention of Caterpillar enthusiasts and scale model collectors alike.

Areas of exceptional detailing include the operator’s stations, complete with foot pedals and control levers as well as an accurately depicted instrumentation panel.  An open engine bay will reveal even more details to the observant as minute as fuel injectors, oil and fuel lines and pulley belts which adds to the realistic appearance.

Attached to the front of this machine and controlled by the No. 24 Cable Control system is a 5.6″ wide 8S straight blade.  Mounted on the rear is the No. 25 Double Drum Cable Control.

The undercarriage of the model consists of individually linked, free-rolling tracks wrapped around drive sprockets and idlers.

Each one of these incredible scale reproductions is hand-crafted from hundreds of perfectly reproduced parts, painted in period correct colors with markings and warning labels providing the finishing details – all of which has been approved by the manufacturer for accuracy.

Although we are too early in the process to determine pricing we know that the production run will be low and availability limited. Click on the image above for progress updates and additional photos as we have them!
