Norscot Caterpillar D8R Series II vs. Diecast Masters D8R Series II Track-Type Tractors (Bulldozers) (06:19)
First released by Norscot in 2002, the Cat D8R Series Bulldozer in 1:50 scale was not well received by most collectors, myself included. The limited functionality and rubber tracks made the model a candidate for the fabulous flop file. Despite this, the model remained in the Norscot line-up until the license was lost to Diecast Masters in 2015. When Diecast Masters announced they were going to update the D8R, I had high hopes that at least, the blade would have better moment and the metal tracks would make the machine a much higher quality model. Unfortunately, the lack of functionally remains, and hurts this model significantly. Overall, these models achieve a low score of 3/10 on the Diecast Emporium Rating Matrix. The link to purchase the Norscot version of this dozer is listed below. At the time of this review, the Diecast Masters version was not listed on the website for sale.
