Search for GOLD – Prospecting with a 4200xl Hydraulic Excavator 1/12 scale


Sometimes I wonder why I invest so much money into full scale operations when small scale is also a lot of fun! HAH! No Gold today unfortunately, I should have been digging in a corner of the stream – but everything is quite flooded. Looks like I was actually pulling up tailings from another persons dig.. I will have to keep searching for that elusive black sand..

The RC machine I am using today is distributed by a company called RC4WD online.. Here is some info about the product:
