Can I get an N gauge wheeled excavator???
« on: January 29, 2020, 08:42:51 AM »
 :helpneededsign: :searchingsign:

I'm after a wheeled excavator to convert into a Rail/Roader type machine for a bit of a diorama. Tried shapeways and google but nothing seems to give me what I want.

Just wondering if any one knows of somewhere that I'm struggling to find


 :thankyousign:

I'd be surprised if a Japanese company did not produce one

hmm... other than the shapeways one already linked to above, the offerings out there all seem to be tracked rather than wheeled.


Fortunately I have a good friend who is an expert at making N scale vehicles etc. totally from scratch, so I've had this one sitting on my layout for the last 20 years ish  :D

Will a 1:160 model be suitable for your needs?

Lemke Minis will shortly be releasing this:

P and D Marsh do something that might be of use - ref E55PD.

Addit: Just looked on the website and that model is not showing, although it is mentioned on Hattons -
