Good work Ulrich

Is the model entirely scratchbuilt by you?

Looks very good! A nice mix between metal and (what I guess is) 3D-printed parts.

No. Those are the parts I got:
- undercarriage is an old Premacon. I adusted the width and added weight
- pump Modellhydraulik Kampshoff
- cylinders Modellhydraulik Kampshoff
- rotating assembly Fumotec
- cab Premacon
- valves Leimbach

The rest is either milled brass or aloy and 3d-printed parts. Those I produced myself. The lasercut steel parts are bought as well. I wanted to try all current manufacturing possibilities, so I started drawing about a year ago...



The counterweight is for example just a raw draft. There is a lot of CADwork left to do. I just wanted to make sure all the parts fit in, before wasting time.

Yes, that´s how it was build. The 3D-printed parts cover the structure. I´m hoping to get an almost paint ready surface with this kind of construction.

Ulrich

The hybrid construction of the boom is really nice. All the hydro/electrical is beautifully packaged too.

I love the zero swing excavators.

That looks familiar, did you sacrifice a Liebherr 944b to make that ?

Yes, that was supposed to be a 944. I bought the undercarriage some years ago. It isn´t 100% but I didn´t have the time to start from zero. I just had to cut it in half and reinforce it with steel to add some weight and fit the rotating assembly

Hi Ulrich

Great work blending many construction methods to take the best from each.
This will look amazing when finished
