Steel Model Kit - Excavator and Mining Truck
Made by Metal Earth, the Excavator and Mining Truck steel model kits are a perfect way to gain dexterity, hone your concentration skills, and learn about heavy machinery in a hands-on way. Designed for ages 14+ and no glue required, although kits recommend using tweezers for bending or twisting connection tabs. Comes in two variations:
Excavator: an Excavator is a piece of heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper, bucket, and cab on a rotating platform known as the "house." The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. It is a natural progression from the steam shovel and often mistakenly called the power shovel.
Mining Truck: a Mining Truck is an off-highway rigid dump truck specifically engineered for use in high-production mining and heavy-duty construction environments.
