A scale model of different kind

CAT 508B forestory machine (1:25) scale, most of the Caterpillar models are 1:25 scale. I got as a gift from my company (few more models also as a gift will post them later).

As the name suggests this machine is used for cutting the trees.

The global website is Shop.cat.com where you can buy Cat merchandise including Scale Models. the local dealer in Mumbai for Cat Norscot Scale models is Hello and Welcome

You can also view the personal collection of the owner there.

Beautiful. Naushad. The detailing is absolutely mindblowing, what is expected from an Autoart. How much a hole does it burn in the pocket for this one?
