Wow again! Many mooses...
John, I think I've seen a paper model of some digger similar to that. Let me look around.
found something... this is in 1/25 and I don't know where to get one. But, if you can find one, the paper can be scanned and reduced to any scale. The paper models like this that I do have are very good quality and make great models.

I just realized that is not the one I was thinking of. I'll keep looking.

Hi Michael and all,
Thanks for the reply
If it is a Ruston Bucyrus, then it is probably one of the ones done by New Zealander Paul Berntsen under The Model Company label in 1/43rd scale. See http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=5463&forum_id=4 for some more information.
Duncan Models in the UK did a Priestman Panther face shovel in 1/43 as well, see http://www.duncanmodels.co.uk/price_list_steam_vehicles_and_items.htm You'll have to scroll down to see the Panther.
Again congratulations on a well executed motive power depot (It's far more than just the roundhouse and turntable.
But this Ruston Bucyrus is in 1:87 (or maybe 1:76?).

I believe the shovel kit was made by Scalecast Models,
I have their cast metal kit for a RB 19 Crowd Shovel "SC 02"

Further to this, "Langley Models" took over the Scalecraft line and sells these kits, worth a look.
Most kits are in OO or 1/76 scale.
