The GMK-5095/5115 with get 7! Including *ahem* Mediaco (FINALLY! THANK YOU TWH!)

The GMK-5115 Mediaco would go great with a LTM-11200! Applause Applause

And what is the functional part, a real operator, LOL!!!!!

Just picking Brandon, but seriously what functional part is it lacking, I have read all the reviews and nothing has been mentioned about a nonfunctioning part!!!!!

Nice catch CraneBrain!!!

I'm a kid at heart, so I will play with any model construction vehicle from 1:87 scale to 1:1 scale!!!!

Age is a state of time NOT a state of mind!!

it works and everything but they dont supply enough cable and the drums are too small to add more to it, the cylinder also doesnt stay up, (like most hydro crane models) other than that its great, and they supply the same hook block for the jib, shouldve came with a hook ball instead...its more of a shelf model than actually using it in a dio
