At the recent Bauma fair, Doosan introduced a couple new vehicles. Unlike previous releases they new models are all in 1:50 scale, which seems to be the standard for construction vehicles.
The first one is actually a truck to move machines around different fairs, like Bauma, to display their products.
Majorette has been invisible for me for some years due to the place I lived. They were almost nowhere to be found. But recently I seem to be getting slightly more lucky. In fact, these vehicles come from the home of Majorette: France.
