Paul, beautiful pictures! That will make a nice partner for the big Gottwald. I hope you have a family portrait in the works.

Nice pics Paul. The YCC 1400 really is a thing of beauty like no other. In a good dio it'd be nigh impossible to tell it was a small scale model.

Thank you for sharing the Van Seumeren photos Paul. Looks like a neat twist to the standard Mammoet colors Cool .

One thing bugs me though, the lights on the rear of the vehicle (second last pic) seem to be poorly done, askew and very asymmetrical Confused . I just keep wishing YCC were better at using tampos rather than sloppily applied decals Shame on you .

Do you know if the spare wheel next to the boom is removable from its cradle?

Uzair,
I agree about the rear lights. I might have to see if I can sort them out. I’ve not tried to remove the wheel and believe it is fixed but I will double check this.

Thanks,

Paul R

Good luck with the fix on the lights Paul.

As to the wheel it will be a cool little feature if it is removable.

Thanks for the sharing the Sarens LR 1600 photos Paul - I was waiting for your presentation on it Smiley The model does look smashing and I am again tempted to get it, alas the extremely limited storage space I have (let's not even talk about display space) disallows such a large model. I already have one LR 1600/2 model - the Riga Mainz, and overall I like that a better scheme than this mostly yellow model.

I always do like the Sarens blue however. Am I the only collector who finds the counterweights on these crane models some of the most interesting and beautiful components of the whole model:

The Sarens 1600/2 is absolutely beautiful, and the ballast tray really sets it apart. Thanks for sharing Paul.

Uzair - I like the counterweights too, however on my model the sizes were inconsistent so they didn't look so great up close.

That's surprising to hear! Have you encountered this size mismatch only on the LR 1600/2, or on other NZG models as well?

Nope just on the 1600/2. The counterweights on the 11200 are perfect and therefore much better by comparison.

Hey Paul great pics as always. I noticed your no longer giving us the WSI updates anymore?

If it's mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and automated I can build it.

I haven’t done so since January 10th. As you’re the first person to mention it in 4 months I don’t think it’s been missed!

Thanks,

Love the MIC livery.Undoubtedly,they have the most colourful cranes.Very distinctive.The LTM 1800 looks really good.Is that a 'current' crane?Or,is it a historic piece?Smile
