The Caterpillar D5C Dozer in 1:50th scale was released by Joal in 1998 with #174.
The model of the Caterpillar D5C Dozer was released by Joal until 1998 under item number 174. Except for the changes in the logos and the livery, there are no changes to the scale model in all variations released during this period.
The model remained available until Joal lost the license rights to release Caterpillar scale models to NORSCOT. Then Norscot released the model again in a “limited” (!) edition of 6900 pieces. This scale model of the Caterpillar D5C Dozer only has new packaging, a serial number stamp and a ditto numbered certificate. The scale model itself remained unchanged.
