Cat 297c

Recommended Posts

Hello scale modelers!

I would like to show my Cat 297C model. I have had the ability to drive one of these once, and it was such a powerful, fun, and comfortable vehicle to drive.

(This is not the one I drove)

The model does not pose fully yet, I will make a version like that soon, but is a nice desk model.

My Model: (lDD only so far.

Hope you like it, I don't think it is perfect yet, but it could be.

Your Cat seems to be a bit too small for the SM forum. It looks like it is around 1:25 scale?

Nice track solution. On the other hand, the whole thing looks squished, like someone stepped on it. You could be more generous with the height.

Ok, i thought that a bit too, but it would be too tall i thought.

I think around 1:30 actually, I put it next to a model. Where else would you suggest?

Since SM forum is for models of 1:20 or bigger, we'll move this to the special forum.

Why is it that scale models should be 1:20 scale or larger? 

I myself am a scale model collecter and my scale models vary in size from 1:87 to 1:12. To me the criteria should be that if the model being built is 'to scale' (dimensions and appearance are on point) it should be considered a scale model, regardless in which scale it is built.

To get back on topic, i would have to agree that the model looks a little too 'flat'.

Well then, I will make a larger one too. Maybe that will actually fit.

Hello Sjoemie,
I am talking about Scale Modeling Forum, not about scale models in general.
Recently we have concluded that a model should be at least 1:20 in order to be posted in SMF.

Please check out SMF discussion topic there for more details.

Great. As long as it is 1:20 or larger, it will be okay.
