The Caterpillar 613G Elevating Scraper in 1:50th scale was released by Norscot in 2009 with #55235.
The scalemodel of this Caterpillar 613G Elevating Scraper features the new PowerEdge logos and largely diecast performed except the plastic wheels and the "Elevating" conveyor belt.
The scraper bowl is unfortunately not equipped with a working blade. The metal bed shear is only one piece molded along with the bowl and is not functional and faithfully applied. The Elevating unit is relatively rough and largely made ??of plastic. In short, the characteristic features of the Elevating Scraper are below the standard one would expect and I think that affect this model.
Then I'd rather pay double the price, because this would still give an excellent price versus quality. Beautiful details are: AccuGrade GPS Grade Control System. Also, the cabin with an interior and the rest of the motor unit in great detail, even rubber mud flaps and drivers steps are not lacking. Overall a nice model which good have been scoring a lot higher in my opion.
