Comment on this model.

The JCB 467 is a 24 tonne machine which was introduced in 2012 and was aimed at regions without stringent low emission requirements. 


The model comes in a JCB-branded box and the model is held between two snap fit clear plastic formers.  Strangely nowhere on the box does it state the JCB machine which is inside.

There were no missing parts or defects on the review model.

There is no information about the real machine or model included.


Looking underneath, the two axles have differentials and there is a short length of drive shaft to the front axle.  Finely etched access platforms are visible behind the front wheels.  The tyres are a nice quality rubber and the hubs are detailed with wheel nuts.

Access stairs leading up to the cab are really good as they are thin metal with a really tiny JCB logo.  Outside the cab the handrails are metal and thin as are the cab mirrors.  The interior cab detail is good with a fire extinguisher adding to the interest.

The engine area has good casting details and the counterweight has good quality lights with plastic lenses.  Under the panels is a detailed engine with different coloured components.

The pivot point has visible steering cylinders but no drive shaft or hoses.  The front is modelled well and the Z-bar loader arm linkage is good with decent JCB graphics and painted unobtrusive rivets.

The metal bucket is a nice casting.


The wheels roll well and are fixed to common axles.  The rear axle has good oscillation and the front axle is fixed with only minor movement.

Steering across the pivot point achieves a realistic angle.

The Z-bar linkage is stiff and will hold any pose.  However the range of movement is a little restricted.  A carry position with the bucket down cannot be posed and the height of lift seems shallow too.  In contrast the tipping angle of the bucket is very good.

Engine covers on both sides can be opened and will pose in the open position.


This is a very good quality model by Motorart with a high metal content.

The graphics and paint are very good too. 


The model price is reasonable given the quality.


It is good to see a high quality model of a JCB machine and Motorart has done a good job with the 467.  It is highly recommended.


The model appeared in August 2013.

Bucket height is good enough for a road tipper.
Good combination.
