Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Komatsu WA900 Wheel Loader - By Wayne Calder

Komatsu's real-life WA900 is a WA800 with a bigger bucket and a counterweight on the rear bumper. Kibri's WA800 kit offered an excellent starting point for Wayne Calder's WA900 model. It involved modifying the bucket to make it larger and scratchbuilding the counterweight. Bigger wheels and tires were added too. Kibri's stock WA800 is in the background.
