One of the best looking WSI models so far in my opinion, the Scania T cab in the livery of Autaa:















The Torben Rafn Volvo











Not a WSI but a Tekno. The Scania R620 Kranringen + Mammoet service platform:












A great looking model only let down by the lack of functionality in the front and rear out riggers, plus the HIAB cannot be posed in very many positions due to week cylinders and the tele sections do not hold in an extended position.

I find it strange you snapped up the Tekno Kranringen Scania,after you nominated the Tekno Mammoet Daf with HIAB as "Flop of the year" due to the poor functionality of the hiab and outriggers? hmmmm Think Think d'oh!

Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

... It's better to be silent and thought a fool, then to speak up and remove all doubt

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

Nothing strange at all really. It is true that I felt the DAF was and is the flop of the year due to the outrigger issue. However, as a static model in transport position it does look nice. I also have all Mammoet models, bar 2. One of which is the PTC DS and I don't see me getting that anytime soon! I like the Mammoet collection so I wanted to keep it up.

Thanks,

Finally got around to taking some pictures of this little beauty that I picked up whilst in the US a couple of weeks ago:



























This model is truly a work of art and the detail is amazing!

Thanks for looking,

The Volvo with ballast trailer in the livery of Quigleys arrived last night. Been a while in coming but it is another nice Irish livery to add to the collection:

I wasn't planning on buying this but then saw some pictures of the actual model and changed my mind! A very nice model I think.

Damn Paul, how many of these models do you actually own!!!!! and now your in the new house why are we not seeing them out of there boxes and on display.....and don't you give your jet set lifestyle as a excuse!!!! When you do decide to rig all them cranes up give me a shout, i'll travel up, help you and we'll go for a pint or 10.

Have you spoke to jibtickler recently? he has news Teeth. I had a cuppa with him on the A1 on wednesday, said he had thousands of pictures to send you!!! lol

Cheers Gaz. Model room is being sorted but it won't be cheap, hence the wait.

I had heard along the grapevine about jibtickler but not an 'official' word yet! I gotta meet you guys sometime! We really should have a beer or 10 and just have a good time!

Claire (my wife) actually contacted Ainscough about driving a crane for a day! They couldn't help of course but I love her for trying!! But I now have an R8 to drive for a couple of hours Wink

Happy Birthday Paul!
You've a very big collection.
I advice You to choose very good show-case to have dust protection in particularly in the open side.

Just a an example:
