Every year, Toy Trucker & Contractor presents their ‘Best of’ scale model year-in-review, and we are proud to announce that this year we were named to this list not once, but twice! Both our Bucyrus-Erie 1850-B ‘Brutus’ model from brass in 1:87 scale, as well as our 1:48 scale die-cast Cat® 6090FS, were selected for this prestigious award. Our Bucyrus-Erie 1850-B was not only selected as the ‘Best High-End 1/87 Scale Construction Model’ of 2018, but was also honored with premier placement on the magazine’s cover!
“Bucyrus-Erie 1850-B ‘Brutus’: This may be Classic Construction Models’ best, and most intricate, model to date. Even in 1/87 scale, this replica is massive.”– Mark Macreading
“[The 6090FS] pushes the limits as to the amount of detail that can be put into a die-cast replica.”– Mark Macreading
