There has been plenty said about this model so I'll just let the pictures for the talking! I started taking pictures indoors but wasn't happy with them so decided to take it outside which I think was the correct decision!

The LTM11200 Mammoet by NZG is with a doubt a magnificent model.If I am being critical it does lack some of the finer detail of the YCC models but then what do you expect given the prices? It is a very well built and heavy piece of model engineering and appears to be quite accurate. I would also like to comment on the rope as it apears to me to be very similar to Musky Master! In my opinion there is no need to change the rope on this model, unless it is too short for certain situations.

I hope you enjoy the photos. NZG in my opinion has set the bar for price/quality ratio for a model this size.

Nice pics paul. Your right about the rope, i only got around to reeving the hook block on mine yesterday but the rope and the metal pulleys that came as standard on the model made it an absolute pleasure to do compared to the older crane models with the usual rope and plastic pulleys that come with them.

Just got mine yesterday and have to admit its a great model. the only complaint I have is the instructions arent the greatest, I just wish the would show which screws go where as I struggle a bit to work out where they go, I have managed to find where a few go thanks to your pictures Paul.

Agreed on the instructions!

Some advice:

1. Roll up a bath towel or fleece top. Turn the chassis upside down and place on towel. Then attach CW tray! I found this the easiest way as the screws on my model were very stiff.

2. If you are using the same configuration as me, remove the inner boom sections as this makes fitting the screws for the mast head a lot easier.

3. If you have the MAN boom transporter, make sure you have a needle file handy. I again turned the boom upside down and filed out the connection points. I then attached the trailer while still upside down as this made the whole process a lot easier!

Good luck!

Paul

Dear all,
well it's taken me a while but I have finally got around to setting up my Wiesbauer LG1550. For me, I have been anticipating this model more than the LTM11200! I can't wait for the Riga Mainz version either.

Detail on this model is fantastic, but this comes at the cost of fragility which I was soon reminded of. Damage was not bad enough to stop the rigging of the model but I will contact YCC to see if I can't replace the damaged parts, which were one of the back stops and an eyelet on a boom section.

But here are the pictures:























Thanks for looking,

good shots there Paul!!
I have yet to rig up my sarens!! sitting in transport mode now since the day it crossed my gate lol,that amk1000 will be one sought after model,there's alot of people around the world with an itchy "buy now" credit card trigger finger,ready and waiting,

i just hope we're just all still alive when it does finally get released in the year 2067 Liar

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.

Sure thing. I will try and get this done in the next few days. Due to the change around in the cabinet, I have boxes everywhere so have to find the other models!

Got the Felbermayr LG1750 set up today. Main boom only but I think it does look very good in this configuration. Thinking I might have to add the ballast tray extension though Think













Thanks for looking,

John,
Taken longer than expected, but here you go:












And here is the cabinet as it stands now. I completely emptied it out a few weeks ago and put back in models that had not been on display before. The exceptions are the two LTM1800's.



Thanks for looking,
