Ahead of the Nuremberg Toy Fair, which is being held in early February, we preview two new models from construction model specialists Conrad and NZG. ...
Here’s a sneak peak at two new models that will be launched at the International Toy Fair 2012 later this month.
First up is the Liebherr L586 wheel loader, decorated in the Eggersmann company colours from NZG. It features a removable rock guard covering the front window with an articulating chassis, functioning loader arms with Z-bar bucket linkage and a crisp graphics package. It will be limited to 300.
Conrad will reveal the latest model in the Putzmeister line-up, the 1/50 scale M42.5 based on a 4-axle MAN TGS chassis. Its features include working X-pattern outriggers, an all-metal boom that is fully functional with an opening rear hopper, accurately scaled safety railings and walkways and the latest corporate graphics, excellently applied on the boom sections.
