1/50 Komatsu WA470-6 Wheel Loader


Until quite recently I was unaware of the existance of the Universal Hobbies brand. I'm sure glad I discovered them as they manufacture some really good quality 1/50 scale Komatsu equipment.
The WA470 wheel loader is a particularly nice model with a level of detail far superior to similar wheel loader models offered by other diecast manufacturers.
Although the handrails on this model are a little overscale it is not very noticeable and is amply compensated for by the level of detailing which extends to the warning decals as seen on the real McCoy.
Mention must also be made of the exceptionally well represented hydraulic hoses on the loader frame.
As a parting shot, this model also has an auto-lubrication system - the first time I've ever seen this now commonplace item featured on a model.
Universal Hobbies models are excellent value for money.
