10006 - Tonkin Replicas Caterpillar 972K Wheel Loader Articulated steering

Experience Level: Average Purchased for: Diarama or Train Layout
The Tonkin Replica's CAT 972K model matches the prototype very well. The detail is very nice. The hand-railings are fragile! But they do look extremely good. The bucket could use a little more play in the tilt, but overall it's effect is good. This model will look great on any modern train layout or diorama. The addition of the mirrors, antenna are nice, as is the steering rods visible trough the articulated segment. There is a little play in the axles, allowing the model to sit nicely on uneven ground. For the quality, detail and the fact it's a diecast model is well worth the price.
