NZG (Nürnberger Zinkdruckguss) is a manufacturer of diecast models of trucks and construction machinery, mostly 1/50th scale. In the 1980's NZG manufactured a series of 4 simple Caterpillar models in 1/87th scale. Currently a new series called 'Metal Collection 87' of higher quality (details, printings, glazing etc.) is available.
