Komatsu PC490HRD - High Reach Demolition Excavator Diorama
Client: Komatsu UK Ltd.
Commissioned by Komatsu UK to present to one of their prestigious clients, this 1:50 scale diorama features a model of the PC490HRD High reach demolition excavator, in action demolishing a building, alongside a digger boom and extension boom. The model is a great example of traditional modelling techniques alongside modern 3D printing technology. The main body of the machine was adapted from a diecast scale model of a similar excavator, with newly constructed undercarriage, booms and details, including hand made cable and pipework additions.
The model is seen below being presented by Komatsu to their client in the USA:
