The HCEA has launched a new line of custom scale models of historic construction equipment, and our first is as historic as they come: A 1/10 scale model of the Otis Steam Shovel, the machine that started it all in 1835. This is a limited-edition model, with only 70 being produced. See our online store for details and ordering information.
HCEA Members from around the globe share information, stories and buy, sell and trade the stuff of Old Iron.
