This is a 1/87th scale all brass construction conversion of a Komatsu D575A-2 with 70 cu. yd. blade & ripper. Conversion is from CMC 575A-3 which had a 90 cu. yd. blade and counterweight. Zycon Models commisioned the same factory that made the Classic Mint Collectibles (CMC) A-3 to make the smaller 70 cu. yd. blade and ripper componenets from brass. Items were factory painted using the same paint as on the original CMC model so it would be a perfect match. 25 sets of parts were made and Zycon Models aquired 25 A-3 models from CMC. All 25 model sold during the reservation process so the models were at sold out status by the time they were built. For comparison purposes two of the photos above show both models side by side. The photo with the dozer blades illustrates the difference in the size of the blades. The one on the right side is the smaller 70 cu. yd. blade which is the A-2 conversion model. (Production Year 2006) Original retail was $599.00
