** 9.29.19 - Resin Prints and Custom Painting now available for this model. - CLICK HERE **
This is an N-Scale (1:160) model of a mid 2000's Caterpillar 966 Front End Loader or FEL. It is considered Medium Duty, but is the Largest of that style. Next largest size is a full mining FEL. This size is oftern seen around Coal Docks, Lumber Mills, large construction sites. etc etc.
The model prints in 3 Parts, but is comprised of 7. This is to allow positioning of the model for loading, dumping and turning. I've attached photos below that show the parts that will need some extra attention depening on your final look.
1. The Purple items will need to be glue into position at the angle you wish to depict
2. The Pink shafts will need to be trimmed to fit.
3. RED are sprues that need to be cut or sections removed and trimmed to achieve proper fit.
4. its unlikely the handrails and ladders will successfully print or least survive shiping/painting. i recommend Brass and make them yourself.
