Ad Gevers is a Dutch custom Caterpillar scalemodel builder. His main focus are Track-Type Tractor and Scrapers. On many forums are the unique custom scale models from his hands to admire. I'm proud to be able to add the reviews from some of his Caterpillar projects on www.minimovers.nl
Under the name cADSttachments appear regularly exclusive small series of KITS that allow you to add a machine variant or a unique work tool to your Caterpillar collection.
To celebrate that Ad Gevers has been collecting Caterpillar Track-Type Tractors scale models for 40 years and building 20 years kits under the name cADSttachments he decided to accomplish a unique custom built project.
Of course it should be a Caterpillar: The first what came up was to release the Caterpillar AG-6 (Ad Gevers) but there was an even better candidate. Besides his greatest passion: the Caterpillar D9 Track-Type Tractor, Ad is also fascinated by the unique Caterpillar S-D8lgp Dozer and therefore that only could be his choice!
Caterpillar S-D8lgp Track-Type Tractor "Mary-Ann" (Marian)
This ready and painted model in 1:50 scale is manufactured in cooperation with FanKit Models, due to the good experience with the construction of the Delta PL95H pipelayer they have be choosen to produce a small and limited serie of 50 pieces. The resin Tack-Type Tractor is equipped with metal tracks.
You understand that all 50 pieces of this jubilee model were reserved by the collectors within no time. But ...... there will be almost certainly a variant when there is sufficient interest! So grab your chance and contact Ad Gevers through firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!

Ad Gevers contacted CCM models to ask if there was a possibility of releasing a third version of the Caterpillar D7G Track-Type Tractor but was informed there were no plans to release any other versions of the Caterpillar D7G in 1:48th scale. After receiving this information he started the development of Kit #59 which contains one cabin with bracket (resin), two engine protective covers and a towbar (metal) and green/blue cabin glass (plastic). All this, so that your own Caterpillar D7G Track-Type Tractor with this kit modification will clearly look different from the two Caterpillar D7G scale models previouly released by CCM.

The final result:
After the completion of his custom built Caterpillar 594H Pipelayer, in the spring of 2013, Ad Gevers concluded that this scale model without any load on the hook would not be complete. Inspired by the Superior Roli Cradle he made of brass and plastic material a Roli Cradle in scale 1:50.
At the request of many, this Roli Cradle now released in a limited edition as a kit.
