The resin-made model didn't like it at all and now awaits a huge repair operation.

Outstanding modelling, as usual. Unfortunate news on the Belaz but perhaps it will make for some interesting garage scenes!

For those who are interested in such a large dumper, please note that the BelAZ 75710 claimed payload is 450 tonnes and that its dump body is given for up to 368.3 m3 of material.

Link to the "Wikipedia" dumper page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BelAZ_75710 and to "Lectura Specs" specifications (in French, sorry!): https://www.lectura-specs.fr/fr/modele/machines-de-chantier/dumpers-a-benne-arriere-belaz/75710-11738579

Talk about dedication to detail, those wheel covers are terrific. But really isn't everything in this display outstanding? Descriptions are spot on too. Thanks Guy. CAW
