The Caterpillar D9E Track-Type Tractor in 1:50th scale was custom made in 2013.
Thomas Wilk from TCC photowork was given the opportunity to take some pictures from this customized and hand build Caterpillar D9 Series E scraper puller with No 90 tow scraper made by an unknown custom builder.
The basic model is from the Caterpillar D9G made by Conrad in 1:50 scale with a lot modifications on the undercarriage and has a total re designed operator platform and many more details: A small masterpiece.
Enjoy the photos.
