I saw this mentioned in the latest magazine, Does anyone have any information on it? Is it 1/25 scale?
I'm not that familiar with the D9. Is a D9D much different than a D9E?
Is it an ACMOC only model, or will it be retailed like the Norscot stuff?

I was disappointed to see the poor quality \ detail on the latest Norscot released 977D in the ACMOC magazine. The components used in the manufacture and assembly of the model appeared to be overly large and lacked any fine detail \ proportion (loader arm linkages & bucket teeth etc), hopefully the picture in the advert shows a pre-production prototype model???

If we are going to pursue a commercial relationship with model manufacturers then we should insist on a high standard of quality, otherwise it will reflect poorly on the Club. If Norscot can't achieve the right standard, then we should drop them in favour of First Gear or Spec Cast?

What do other members think, we can't afford another repeat of the Twenty Two model problems!

Hello David,yes I think you ar right.The first gear IH models are first rate for a very good price and I think ACMOC should source models from them.I have got a fair collection of models some Norscot,NZG etc.The 997 may be a preproduction photo,I hope.

I bought one of the First Gear D9D tractors. Willie is right, it is a very nice model.
I saw that the board of directors minutes in the latest magazine mentioned a D9E with a 491 scraper was in the process of being produced.
I was wondering if that was also a First Gear item and what scale it will be. Anyone from the model committee out there?

The D9D is the 18A direct drive with oil clutch & the D9D 19A is a torque converter with a dry clutch. The D9E, 34A is a power shift tranny & the 49A is a direct drive with oil clutch & the 50A is torque convertor drive with dry clutch. Altho.being very similar there are some differences in them but I don,t have any parts books to check them & can,t remember just what all of them are but they all used the D353 engine.

I would imagine the D9E will be made by First Gear as thats how they get more mileage out of the moulds ie by making a few changes then belting out another run. Look at the First Gear TD15,more varients than you can shake a stick at,some of them dont look too genuiene either(red TD15). Actually First Gear are past masters at this,anyhow I dont care as long as the new release keep coming!!!

Replied by FatCatGotHot on topic Difference D9D/D9E
SJ, there are some visible points to differ a D9D from a D9E:

+ the fuel tank of the D9E is bigger, it looks like the one of a D9G. The fuel tank of a D9D is flatter and has small rectangual handels.


+ the round radiator cutaways of a D9D have a smaller diameter than the cutaways on the D9E. And the radiator of the D9D has also small rectangular handels that are missing on a D9E.


+ the D9D has a small opening on the right side of its radiator used for the pcu cable. While this cable runs threw the main frame of the D9D, Cat used an extern tube on the D9E, so there is such an opening.


I'm realy looking forward this model. The D9E was the first D9 I've ever seen in my life - and my first big Cat I've ever seen. And with less than 800 units ever produced, it's the rarest D9 built. And I really like her twin air cleaners...^^
