Takara Tomy 71 Hitachi ZW220 Wheel Loader

Post by Rich B »

This toy is marked as 1/110 scale. Measuring from Hitachi's published dimensions, it's about 8% overscale for TT/1:120. That's probably close enough for many modellers.

A week or two before Christmas I found a Takara Tomy #34, a 1-122 Komatsu Wheeled Excavator PW200.
Some weathering and it will look fine.

The Takara Tomy models vary in size in the same box, sort of like the old MatchBox models, the model fits the standard box.
I saw a few buses in 1-110.

One problem with the models is that they change frequently and reuse numbers so there is no guarantee that model 34 will be the same model in a few months. If you have a store near you that carries Japanese products it might be worth while visiting it to see if they carry this product. if so checking back every month or so might yield a few new use able models.
