Construction equip. needed
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, October 9, 2002 5:21 PM
Does anyone know where I can get HO construction
equipment kits? I basically need a front end loader
that was produced in the 1950's. If not can anyone
suggest a way to kitbash something that would serve
my needs? Thanks for any help-Bob

to get them. I built a Woodland Scenics
Bulldozer a few years ago. I can't remember where
I got it from sorry. Ross

How about Tonka trucks? Would they be too big for HO?

tonka trucks would be pretty close for some of those huge strip mining dump trucks -- the kind where the driver has to walk up sort of a fire escape just to get to the cab.

I have found HO (or HO compatable) construction equipment in several places. The toy isle in the market (you might also try Kmart, walmart, etc.) yields a supriseing amount of items (some very good, a lot not worth taking home); the equipment dealers parts departments (i.e. John Deere, Cat, Case, etc.) carry scale versions of the real thing.
