Heard from a good dealer friend of mine that these are now in stock. I will see one later today all being well.

Does anyone have one in their possession yet? Would like to hear what you think!

I got mine on friday. WOW. Bigger than I expected. Almost 2 feet tall with the drill upright. It came with instructions on how to assemble. Very nice model. I don't know specs/details on the real machine, so no complaints from me.

How big is the box this model comes in and how much does it weigh?

I was hoping to have one in my hands this evening but unfortunately things did not work out Sad Guess I will wait a little longer and get one after Christmas. We'll see. In fact, I was hoping to have the 16000 as well but......................

Not so sure they would fit in my suitcase anyway!!!

I'm really having a problem here. Although I stopped collecting mining equipment, I'd really like to get this model. But it's so large!! Over two feet tall? That's huge!! And that box... 20 x 25 x 66 cm's!!!

Mark,
I haven't checked this out yet. I am sure Julian will have them though. It does not bother me to have these models posted from the US and I have done a few before. The CCM Linkblet was the last model I had shipped from the US.

I have a friend who lives in the US and he usually ships models for me when I buy them over there.
