I normally wouldn't get a Conrad model, but this seems pretty nice.

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

what's the max height of the cc3800 model with all the boom sections in the box used?

Are you still able to buy anymore sections to get the tallest configuration or buy the jib?

I got LR1600 and LR1750 with all the sections to get max height in every single configuration. the additional sections are almost as expensive as another crane model ;(

Hi Victor, I stand corrected, it’s Daffodil Yellow, RAL 1007. Looks like a light orange to me. LOL!

Paul,
Congratulations on #001! What a beautiful model. I'm not crazy about the blue/yellow, but it looks good on that crane. I can't wait to see the customer liveries as they are developed.
Are the counterweight stones compatible with the Conrad AC500?

Dave,
Not tried swapping CW’s but in theory they should. I’ll have to try it!

Thanks for the compliment.

Mostly natural light with flash to fill in some of the shadows.

The Conrad ones have the "twist" when you stack up all 7. These look a lot better. Not a big deal, though. I still love my AC500's.

Paul,is Ainscough the only U.K. operator to have the AC 700,almost complete when on the road?As I have only seen pics of the Ainscough crane parked,with superlift attached and outriggers on.I can only think this would reduce transport costs,as it cuts out one artic.NMT and Quigley the crane is vehicle weight only.

I have seen photos of the Ainscough AC700 almost fully rigged for the road, which equates to 15.5t per axle I think, but of course they don't own one anymore. NMT appears to travel without the SSL so takes the weight down to about 13.7t per axle but as you say would require an extra truck and trailer for transport.

I have also seen photos of Quigley being driven with SSL and outriggers attached.

What are all the differences between this classic Sarens and the other Sarens released a while back?

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

Apart from the different colours, the cab is also different as this one has the older style cab. This one also has a different way to stow the hook for transport as well as some other smaller details.
