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.

Wish all you want knowing the track record and history of Demag and their views on models? Not going to happen... I'd suggest buying 2 8800's and learning how to work with brass or plastic.

Ulf, Alvin... There's a better chance we'd see those 100 before something from Conrad

You can't sue me... I don't know what I'm doing!!

If I am correct, the only demag models that is out right now was released before Terex bought Demag. After Terex bought them, we haven't seen any more crane models from them (CC 8800?), so the chance is probably bigger that we will see a model of LR13000

I would love to see another Terex-Demag crawler crane model but as mentioned T-D just don't seem interested in crane models anymore Sad.

The only thing I can think of that might see another T-D model made is if one of the model manufacturers such as Conrad approached them for permission to make a model but even then there would probably need to be quite a bit of help from T-D on the technical side of things.

Now would I want the CC8800 twin or perhaps a CC6800....Well, I know what would be more affordable!.

Sorry for getting a bit off topic up there....

Anyways, as suggested earlier in this thread, it would be much more likely to see a Twin "kit" that would allow one to buy (2) of the standard 8800's and make them into a twin. There are surprisingly few parts that are needed to make the conversion. (by few, I mean 10 or 15)...

I built the Lego one so that it can be broken back down into a "single" 8800 if I wanted to.

I'd buy it for sure, I do think Alvin has a valid point that a "kit" from Conrad or someone else might be more feasable and therefore likely to happen.

Guys, I don`t believe a conversion kit would be that easy.

Knowing well Wolgang Wagner, who build the only one existing 1/50 mostly brass scale model of the CC8800 Twin and knowing the model well and personally, it affords much more than only 10 or 15 parts and two models of the ordinary Conrad CC8800 model.
But have a look yourselve:




























Now the model is almost finished except the chains from luffing jib pendant lines to the jib and the hook.
Also it needs special winch keys to operate 4 winches simultaneously and synchronised to raise or lower the hook and several to operate 2 winches simultaneously and synchronised to raise or lower the derrick, mainboom and luffing jib.

And Wolfgang Wagner is one of TEREX-DEMAG`s field testing men and knows the real Twin excellent.
