Scale Hitachi ZX200-7 Tracked Excavator
Hitachi ZX200-7 Tracked Excavator
A popular machine found on many construction sites is the Hitachi ZX200, so it is no surprise that a very nice model of the Dash 7 version has been released, replicated in 1:50th scale and packing plenty of detail and realism. The tracked undercarriage has individually linked metal trackpads that rotate freely and surface casting detail of the rollers and access steps on the track frames. The cabin has a door which can be opened by 90 degrees to get a clear look at the fully modelled interior with nothing left to the imagination. A hinged upper engine panel can be opened to reveal more nice detailing, this time of the engine block, exhaust silencer and cooling equipment inside the engine bay. The raised hydraulic lines on the boom add to the realism, as do the armoured hoses while the bucket is mounted using small screws, so can be detached and replaced with other attachments if desired.
