Fan customisation - Model : SK210LC-10
I was given this model of the SK210 at the Molson (Kobelco Dealer) stand at the Plantworx show in 2017 and what I have done to it is quite simple but makes the model pop.
Firstly, I handmade a custom boxing ring (handrails) around the top of the machine using 0.8mm brass rods and painted it a fluorescent yellow, this really pops against the blue of the Kobelco machine.
For the attachment I used a GEM Models Xcentric XC30 crusher bucket and I also added hand made flexible hydraulic lines that feed the attachment.
I have added an industrial scalemodels cab guard which adds great realism to the machine, this also has an orange beacon on top.
