Thanks!

Open for comments and remarks.
I still have to fine tune a lott of stuff. But first prio was back Live.
My goal is to put as many models on the website as I can in as less time and then bit by bit make the reviews and information complete. Then fans can really see whats been made or is up coming.

Otherwise it will take years before I have everything on the website. Besides that I need help from everybody for more 1:1 photos and specsheets to make the story behind every model completed.

So join in and help me!

Regards,
Wouter

Great Models. Ok collectors. If you are a fan of logging, these models are for you. I was skeptical to order them at first. But continued to watch the thread. I received the winch and grapple swing version on Monday. However I did not open them till tonight .

The boxes were very well packed with a technique I have never seen before. Thumbs up to the care taken.

The level of detail is wonderful. Considering they are resin, the resin is very sturdy and very well executed. The blades raise, tilt, swing and the same is for the grapple.

They may seem pricy, but I very glad they are part of my collection. I do however, wish they would cast them in die cast, so the tracks are movable.

I give them AAA+

Thanks CYPMODELS for the great work.

The model will be mainly made from resin material.
Metal would be great, I agree but then I have find at least 975 other collectors which will buy the model and then we could see if can find a builder whos interested in making it.

Making a small limited serie resin model means in my opion you have the change to become your wanted model for a good price versus quality. The model is not for playing in the backyard but for behind glass to enjoy.

So with todays resin models I'm more then happy they way the current custom smaal series builders like CYPmodels, MDF, EMD, RRmodels to name a few fill up the gap that the big boys like CCM, TWH and Norscot do.
