The last blogpost I made was about the Doosan CL. Now I am making a new post on the CX. I am surprised to be able to get it this quick. The Doosan CL and CX concepts are ideas of the Doosan company how construction equipment could look in the year 2020 (and money is no object, presumably). Both have interesting features like counterweights that move, to adapt for the added weight when excavating, head-up displays, independant suspension for more drive comfort and such.
It's made in 1:40 scale by Clover.
This is the Doosan CL. Or as real as it is going to get. The CL, or Concept Loader, is a concept of how a loader might look in the year 2020. It is the sister model to the CX or Concept eXcavator. Both miniatures come with a DVD showing the special features of the machines. In this case, the loader has a moving counterweight at the rear, a head-up display and independant suspension. Also the bucket construction is different to contemporary designs in that the bucket can slide over the ends of the bucket arm.
I hope to showcase the CX soon as well. Both miniatures actually exist for some time already, but seem to be quite limited in distribution.

Execution day and the shackled pirate captains Violent Vinny Arbuthnot and Calico Jack Chinless (see BB 11) are led out from the cells beneath the courthouse to meet the jeers of the crowd. The militia's massed-formation musket-carrying team forms up around them to make sure there's no unsporting attempt to cheat the noose.
Along the quay the gin-palaces and grog-shops are deserted - no one wants to miss a good hanging!
