The Caterpillar D250E Series II Humphrey Fuelmaster F170 in 1:50th scale is a custom made model.
I was given the chance to buy this scale model from fellow collector (thanks Keith W.!) and saw immediately that it was a custom model I had seen years ago on a swapmeeting. But when and from whom...?
Inquiries and further research among my Caterpillar collector friends revealed that the model was made in a limited series by Dutch collector and custom builder Ben Gelijk. In fact, there is a brother scalemodel somewhere in a cabinet in Germany -).
For this custom project Ben Gelijk used as donor the Caterpillar D250E Series II Articulated Dump Truck released by NZG under #413.1 in 1995.
I'm very lucky that I can add another small (I mean the scale!) masterpiece to my Caterpillar collection.
