Komatsu PC5500 Supershovel by Richard Brown

It didn’t take long for me to come across something really cool :-) This popped up this morning on Flickr.

Things That I Like:

The look. Richard did very well and achieved his goal, IMO. This does look very nice.

I like the cylinders, despite them being non-functional. He stated, “I toyed with the idea of using the Pneumatic rams but they didn’t look as good, as I was going for realism rather than function.“. I somewhat agree here, but my own preference would be to compromise on the looks a little bit and go with the pneumatics so that the MOC would be functional.

I love the dark gray (bley) and yellow color scheme. IMO, they are the perfect two colors for large equipment :-)

The scale. It’s about minifig scale, and makes for a nice-sized model. Not tool large but not too small either.
