Pretty sharp, wouldn't mind having one or two of these. I see that it is listed as "Out of Stock" on the HCME website, have they not been released yet? or are they already sold out?

I was thinking the same thing, but not being a crane guy i wasn't sure... what model would that work out to be similar to? a 238?

Eric;

I ordered one this morning around 10:00am and have a confirmation email from the HCME website. It's now 4:30pm and after reading your post, I checked the HCME website and they are saying they are sold out. Wow, I guess Stephen (MCW) wasn't kidding when he said quantities were limited. Does anyone know how long these were for sale or how many were actually produced for sale.

Looks like a well detailed crane, but it could come with more boom. I Noticed all 1/50 Hitachi cranes come with no boom.

Brandon, i believe the price is more like $250, the 239 Euro price includes a 21% VAT tax which we dont pay in the us, so take the 21% off 239 is 189 Euro

could be wrong but i believe thats correct, everything i have bought that included VAT i never paid VAT

I converted the price in euros to us excluding the vat, and it came to 309$
Must have been included
When I got the ptc from the mammoet store, I didn't have to pay VAT either. Got it REALLY cheap!

DeWoc is right about being exempt from the VAT here in the 'states, but his math isn't. The way it is calculated is like this; take the Euro 239 and multiply by 100. Take that Euro 23900 and divide by 100 plus the VAT percentage, (in this case 121) and you get Euro 197.52.

Wait until you see what they charge for shipping though!

Hello guys,

If you live in the USA, you don't have to worry about all the VAT and shippping stuff if you purchase the model from DHS - you know, the company who brings you the forum... now you will have to wait a bit because we just found out about the model too - but give us a couple days and you can order it here.

Steven - thanks for the post - but how about some support here!

Thanks chuck. Put my name in one. This will be nice to add more boom.

Are the counterweight blocks separable? The addon boom sections are still available. sadly there is no jib available ;(

Nice little detail crane. For only $250, you can't get much cheaper with more details. Even if it is a short boom configuration!

just got mine with 2 addon boom extensions. each section cost around $40-45

Breaks down into many transportable components!

Apparently they have also released the SCX3500 but seems like you can only get one from jpn for like almost $1000. Anyone seen or got one?

I have one and a Uchimiya version coming in the fall. Nice model but over priced. I paid over 1k.

cool! please post some pics ;)

yeah, thats definitely expensive for a 300 ton crane. price should be closer to an lr1300. the scx1500 at $250 sounds like a bargain even if it doesnt have much boom section....lol..

I am guessing that it has as much detail or even more than the lr1300? I am hoping they will also have extra boom and jib sections for it too... but that would make it even more expensive....lol..
