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?


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/

Oh no, is the complete ltm 11200 collection now missing some liveries! Which ones did you sell off?

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

and I believe that the boom is still blue.


That's right, pictures of last month of this LR 1750 can be seen here: http://www.hansebubeforum.de/showtopic.php?threadid=3949&pagenum=101#634819

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,


Here you're not right. The crane that got damaged in that retaining wall failure accident was a newer crane, that had only just been delivered to Thömen in 1998.
It had the license plate HH-TN 58, and was delivered with both telescopic and lattice boom.
After the accident it was repaired at Liebherr, but didn't return to Thömen - it went to Hanys instead.
However, Thömen kept the telescopic boom so they could use it with their other crane.

This other crane, which has the license plate HH-WT 60 and is still in use to this day, is the one that YCC brought out as a model 2 times now Teeth

This crane has a unique history. It was built in 1992 as an LGD 1550, the first crane with derrick and heavy SW Boom.
Built in that year, it had the old style driver's cab, under carriage and upper carriage - like the way YCC made their latest models.
So this is the one that Paul just showed here. With great help from a few German forum members, YCC managed to capture the way the crane was painted at delivery.
Pictures of one of its first jobs, september 1992 can be seen here: http://www.hansebubeforum.de/showtopic.php?threadid=3443&pagenum=9#627966

In 1998 the crane caught fire, and was brought to Liebherr for repair.
Then the unique thing happened: it was rebuilt in the new look that Liebherr had started in 1997.
So, a second life with a new face for this crane - with the same license plate HH-WT 60.
At the same time it was also equipped with the software for the telescopic boom - the one that Thömen had kept from the accident crane HH-TN 58.

In this second life the crane is still around. Over the years, colours have slightly changed... showing its age Teeth
http://www.hansebubeforum.de/showtopic.php?threadid=3949&pagenum=99#630065
And representing this second life, YCC earlier brought out a model of it as an LTM 1800.

So now there are two models of one and the same crane, from different time eras.
At home you can make the impossible happen:



( Yeah I know, it's nothing compared to what you can do with all the models of the Gottwald AMK 1000 Wink )

That's an understatement! Thank you for the information. Was the retaining wall accident in 2005?

Thank you for that link. I never realized that it was a river crossing over a river. Fascinating series of events, and the recovery pictures on Hansebubeforum were spectacular.

This crane probably uses a boom dolly in 1:1. I like it better without, so that's one thing that I'm glad got left off of the model.
