    Hi

    I would like to present my Orenstein & Koppel wheel loader in 1/12 scale. It is powered by Leimbach hydraulics and has a few goodies (sound, light effects, all wheels are driven).
    It is my first hydraulic "toy" and I like it very much. It is made from 1,5 to 4mm steel plates and lifts up to 5.6 kg. A cool feature are the cushion tyres. The kit is made by a german named Tobias Braeker.

    Have fun watching the Video. I will add some photos to this thread later on.

    Regards,

    Here is a first shot with the heavy boulder shovel attached. I did a bit of a weathering as you can see.
    A nice feature is also the quick change adapter which allows to change the shovel rather quickly as it is also operated in a hydraulic way. More of that later on.

    I finished last week my lift fork for the Orenstein.

    Regards,
