The scalemodel of the Caterpillar 224 Wheel excavator is a no fuss copy of his 1:1 big brother. The model has a good shape but otherwise fairly barren run. The cylinders are made of plastic material. The two axles are fitted with twin tires. But they are not reciprocating or steering executed. No lifting or dozer blade, only equipped with a few stamps for the necessary stability for the Caterpillar 224 Wheel Excavator during operation.
The scale model is not equipped with an interior in the cabin but a beautiful constructed engine compartment with outlets and a neat counterweight and of course, this model features the old Pacman logos.
