Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Liebherr 984C Excavator - By Timo Bachhuber

Timo Bachhuber sent us these photos of his Liebherr R984C excavator in 1:87 scale. The model is completely scratchbuilt except for the tracks from a Kibri Liebherr 992 and the cab from a Herpa model. It is painted in mine white and detailed with decals from Bastian Modellbau. The "JR" decals in orange/blue are special made for this model. The original machine works for Rädlinger Construction Company in Germany; it has 120 metric tons and a bucket capacity of 9m³ (cubic meters).
