Hi Guys,

I have just received the latest Mammoet store catalogue, for those who do not subscribe to the Mammoet club this is a yearly publication they send out to members showing various models and other items of merchandising, in this addition there are a few interesting items that may be of interest for the model collector, first is the Mammoet Volkswagen set, VW caddy, Transporter and Crafter vans all made by WSI and in 1:50 scale, these will be available next week at the open day, also another VW Transporter BF3 (escort vehicle) again made by WSI and in 1:50

Now for the good news and bad news, first the good news the Liebherr LTM11200-9-1 will be supplied with matching Man TGX Mast transporter in Mammoet colours Teeth the bad news is that there is no exact price or an expected delivery date for said set Sad , but Mammoet hope to have a sample of these models on display at the open day.

Pictures etc can be seen on the Mammoet store web site

http://www.mammoetstore.com/

Well I know what I will be buying on open day and if the 11200 model is there I will get plenty of pictures.

Steve.

Thanks steve, its mainly good news anyway!! I was wondering when the vans would appear, must order a set now. I wonder how they will manage to package the ltm11200 from NZG and MAN TGX with transporter from WSI? They will probably be just boxed seperately as normal i suppose and just shipped together! Will the mast transporter and crane be available as seperate models also?

Oh man, Steve I hope you do get to see the model 11200 and get us some picsPray.

I would be happy to buy just the crane LTM11200 itself without the truck so I wonder if there will be the option of buying both the crane and truck together or seperately?.

The small vans look great and I can't wait to see some pics of the finished models.

As you say Steve, good news and bad news, but mainly good news.

Its good news about the vans in 1.50 scale, its about time we had some of these, I know Corgi do some but these should be pretty good if there like the rest of the stuff from WSI.

I shall buy a set when i`m at the open day.

The ferry crossing is booked and the hotel is paid for.

for me its no good or bad, I´m bored to see the mammoet colours....everybody has one.... I think there world outside the mammoet world...
I only had the grey&yellow mammoet period and the PTC because no more company has one.

there very beautiful companies to have cranes, Havator, Mediaco, All, or ALE, with interesting cranes on their fleet and other parts.

best regards for mammoet colectors and became to paid more for the mammoet logo

Seems to me that if they include the boom carrier with the crane, it will make the crane a lot more expensive than needs to be for the guys that only collect cranes.

You've hit the nail on the head for me Bruce. If it was the 8x4 Merc and 8 axle stepframe I would probably spend the extra £ and go for it(if the two models are to be sold separately).

In terms of personal preferance I'd prefer the Merc to the MAN Sad.

If the NZG LTM 11200 models turns out good I'll probably go for the Mammoet version but the Grohmann, Roxu and other LTM11200s are just as good looking.

Stunning crane...

I was looking in more detail at the Mammoet vans last night and see that they are priced at 89 euros for the three set and 39 euros for the single escort van. In the UK this means I personally would be looking at a price of £90+(p+p) for the three set and £40+(p+p) for the single one.

You can get one of the WSI white line truck models for £40....

Is it just me or does anyone else feel that this is a just little steep for them?.

your right thorleif the vans seem a bit expensive considering you can buy the corgi ones for about £15-£20 quid .i know the corgis are basic but wsi 's won't have much more other than steering ?
think i will give them a miss
