Red-white-black = Bobcat!

But I think Bobcat doesn't produce single piece boom loaders.

It doesn't.

Hope there isn't a sticker on the control panel... :wall:

I didn't think I'd like this set when I saw the prelim, it looked boring and square. But in red and white in the official pictures it actually is pretty cute. I'm impressed they fit the gears controlling a 2 degrees of freedom bucket in such a small space.

But these machines don't have steering in real life

How convenient. But good choice imo, and the set seems fun.

I had its older brother, LEGO 8418 as a kid, and it was a great little set. 8418 looks a lot better and cuter than this one tbh, but kids will still enjoy it.

But that B-Model is about the most ugly thing in existance. Hell no the hood isn't even symetric and the light is only on one side. Its just barely recognizable as a car. I know the part limitations for B-models in this small scale are a challenge, but this looks like something built by a 6yo in 20 mins :laugh_hard:

I don't think it's that ugly, you could easily tell it's a car and it looks surprisingly functional, too. :P

This set looks like a cousin for 42032 in A model. The lift and tilt is the same, but it has wheels and less parts.

True, but at least the designer put in steering, a function not there on the A-model. That's the primary function of a B-model right, to inspire reusing the parts for something new. So I think for that the B-model deserves praise even though it has too little 'flesh' to look good.

Skid steer loaders turn by running one set of wheels in the opposite direction to the other. The clue is in the name!

Yeah I know, so technically it always 'steers' but there is no function like rotating the hubs to put the wheels in an angle compared to the main body. The b-model clearly has that, that was what I was referring to.

Where do you sit on French skid steers such as those from Manitou (on which this model's colour scheme is based)? :wink:

I know very little about construction equipment in general, so no idea. I was talking cars here, about the B model.

New picture shows that the control panel is two parts, not 3L tile. So sticker (or even two) seems unlikely. Probably a printed tile.

Those two tile is printed. I have left one and find right one in some site.(I forget where)

Compressed to fit, I can't promise the B-model is 100% right, but I'm pretty sure the main model is!

Well I can't delete my last post, it failed to upload the pic, and now I can't upload any more pictures...

The boom is really cleverly done. Little shame about the gear protruding out the back, but that's unavoidable. A worthy trade-off. :thumbup:

Looks even better than the first picture, but the blue pins looks a bit weird.
