Always excited to see what he posts next. Nice job Paul, Thanks!

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

Paul,
Just a small typo. I believe you meant AC45, rather than AC54. Your posts are noticed. It's just that most people don't respond. How do you like the Sarens by IMC ? You always take quality pictures. You must have an impressive collection from all these pictures.

Paul, I always look forward to your posts. My collecting has been somewhat curtailed after becoming a father, and I live vicariously through your pictures. They are the next-best thing to having the cranes on my shelf. I've missed some really nice models in the last 8 years, but at least I know where to look at them. Thanks for keeping up on your end!

Outstanding! I have the LG1550 and it's magnificent. Did Wiesbauer use the same chassis with the tele-boom, or was the LTM1800 a completely different machine?

Completely different machine. Wiesbauer had them at different times.

YCC Nolte LG1550

The Nolte LTM1800 was released by YCC almost 9 years ago but sadly, Nolte did not own an LTM1800 in their colours. So I never fully rigged it hoping that one day YCC would make the SLK boom for it but that never happened but they have now made the SW 63/70m boom set. They only made 10 sets and I managed to get 1 Smile

I have set up as a SL 70m main boom and I am hoping an extension set will come available later.

Really nice models Paul, great to see you're still adding to the collection. I really like that Schot ltm 1500. When are we going to see those new ltm 11200's as well as that Thomen LR 1600 rigged up?

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

I have not bought a new 11200 for a while now. In fact I have sold 3-4 of them!

LR1600/2 Thomen will be rigged. I am waiting on YCC walkways for it but have painted a hanging ballast tray already, as the real one does not use the wheeled ballast wagon. Always seemed strange to me that NZG and/or Liebherr went to the bother of casting and making the wheeled ballast tray when most of the models released so far do not actually use one! Most seem to use the suspended version.

Thanks for your interest - I am glad someone still is Wink

Next update might be the Mammoet AC700/9 :d/ :d/

Paul,
I always look forward to your updates. The Thoemen LR1600 reminds me of pictures from way back when, of the LR1750 that Thoemen bought from Wasel, almost new. The boom never got repainted before it went to work for Thoemen, and I believe that the boom is still blue. I'm pretty sure that Wasel had the setup where the assist crane would be suspended, by its outriggers, from the derrick mast, to act as ballast for raising the boom. There were also outriggers on the side of the crawler, on the side facing the boom.
That Thoemen LG1550 is one of my all-time favorite cranes. It was the one that got damaged in an accident involving a retaining wall failure, and Nolte's then-new LG1750 was used to pull it out of the mud. There were great photos of the whole incident on Hansebube, but over the years, the links to a lot of the photos have gone dead.
Thanks for the great photos of the great models!
Dave
