Alfa Romeo 2000 Berlina
PRICE £18.99 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/43 REF NO STA55031

Case Steiger 485 Tractor
PRICE £64.99 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/50 REF NO CASE IH 50-3190
With its chunky eight-wheel, articulated format, this Case tractor typifies the modern agricultural machine. It boasts a diecast body, removable outer wheels and tyres, realistic oscillating movement, positionable side mirrors, drawbar, floodlights and a whole lot more. A Steiger 485HD is also available.
PRICE £24.95 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/43 REF NO CLC213
A true American motoring legend, the 1963 ‘vette is ably reproduced here, in classic black bodywork with red interior. The Corvette badge and ‘fuel-injection’ are finely printed, and the wheels and photo-etched metal air inlet covers are superb.
CLASSIC CONSTRUCTION MODELS
Caterpillar 666 Scraper
PRICE £265-295 SCALE 1/48
The long awaited Caterpillar 666 scraper has finally arrived with model dealers. After months of waiting, the results are superb with Classic Construction Models producing another hit.
The 1/48 scale model is finely detailed throughout and captures the rugged looks of a by-gone era. The operator’s station has all the controls accurately replicated including a moving steering wheel linked to the front wheels. The bowl can be raised and lowered with a functioning ejector plate and accurately detailed diesel engines fitted both front and rear.
This is another great addition to the growing historic range from CCM and is available in two different versions which are selling fast.
