Next Week Sees the Arrival of a NEW Diecast Masters Caterpillar 555D Wheel Skidder!

If you recall the blog from last Friday, you’re aware that a new shipment of Diecast Masters is coming in soon and it includes replicas such as the 1/50 scale 18M3 Motor Grader that I talked about previously. The new replica I’d like to show you today is the Caterpillar 555D Wheel Skidder.
#85932 - 1/50 Scale
October Arrival
Caterpillar 555D Wheel Skidder - High Line Series
Diecast Masters has replicated this forestry machine in 1/50 scale, showing off great details like a functioning scraper, boom, and grapple.

Features include:
• detailed cab interior, including operator
• authentic CAT Machine Yellow paint
• authentic CAT trade dress and safety decals
• articulated hitch
• operational bowl
• authentic metal grab rails and handles
• authentic tire tread design

The articulated, functioning grapple and boom can be posed to your preference, which is useful when building a diorama. 

 The cab is highly-detailed both inside and out, and even includes a tiny operator hard at work.

The tires are exceptional as well, featuring authentic treads and realistic hub details.  

The middle of the tractor is capable of pivoting, as you would expect from an articulated machine. This photo also shows off the sharp, accurate graphics that really take this model to the next level. 

The 1/50 scale 555D is part of the High Line Series, an elite family of models produced by Diecast Masters. This means the replica will arrive in a beautiful, presentation-quality metal collector’s tin. These tins are decorated with full-color photographs, as well as details about the real machine. 

This great Diecast Masters replica, along with many others, is arriving next week, so get your orders in today at!

New Caterpillar 18M3 in Arriving NEXT WEEK from Diecast Masters!!

NEW Diecast Masters models are landing next week and there are some really incredible pieces in both 1/50 and 1/87 scales!  One of those new items is the 1/50 Caterpillar 18M3 Motor Grader.

#85521 - 1/50 Scale
October Arrival
Caterpillar 18M3 Motor Grader - High Line Series
 Diecast Masters’ careful attention to detail is evident with this new 18M3. Today I’m reviewing the 1/50 scale model where everything has been recreated to an exacting degree, from the tread on the tires to the lights and mirrors.

Features of this impressive replica include:

• detailed cab interior, including operator
• authentic Cat Machine Yellow paint
• authentic Cat trade dress and safety decals
• operator's cabin platform
• fire suppression system details
• moveable drawbar, circle and moldboard
• front wheel steering and axle articulation
• rear frame articulation
• oscillating tandem left and right rear wheels
• rear ripper raises and lowers
• authentic tire tread design 

The scraper is posable, allowing you maximum flexibility when building a scene.

A detailed operator’s cab with an operator is surrounded by meticulously detailed handrails and catwalks.

Authentically modeled soft rubber hydraulic lines run everywhere you would expect to see them on the real machine. 

The fully-articulated scarifier can be positioned to your preference, providing a range of options for dioramas or other uses. Also modeled is the machine’s fire suppression system, which you can see here. 

Even the tire treads and the bolts on the wheels are replicated on this 1/50 scale model. Additionally, as part of the High Line Series, this replica comes in a full-color, printed metal collector tin featuring specs and pictures of the real machine.
