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.
I thought it would be good to start a blog about the originals. there are many subjects we could discuss including restoration, the rare ones, and variations of course. also I love the great stories of receiving them as a child. if you collect these, feel free to contact me.
I will try to put some pics of my collection soon. I have been busy this past year and a half educating myself on Lesneys. I look forward to hearing from some of you soon. until next time....
Unlike the bigger scales, especially in small scale we have seen historically many vehicles that tow trailers. In the early days of SIKU, when they were making miniature cars out of plastic, we already had vehicles with trailers. Oter manufacturers too always seemed to like towing. Brands like Majorette, Edocar, Matchbox but also the "Made in China" variety always seemed to have liked selling these.
Greenlight recently released a set of 1:64 cars with trailers.
