thats one nice set up!!

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.

That is a sweet looking crane with loads of detail! Mr. Sword where is mine?

And if you get a commission check form Mammoet, I should get a free 1:1 crane!!!

Dear all,
My AC100-4 Kavanagh arrived today. As it was a nice day outside I took the opportunity to take some photos. Credit has to go to Paul Kavanagh for this model as he has done a great job. I think had he not been so particular then we would have ended up with just another AC100-4, but this is a stand out item. In the future, I hope to add some more details to this such as license plates and may be even the tool box at the back. I also didn't realise until I had taken the pictures that I have put one of the counterweights on incorrectly d'oh!

Enough waffle, here are the pictures:





































Thanks for looking,

Seems forever since I have been able to rig a new crane of any size, but the Franz Bracht LTM11200-9.1 turned up this week. What a great model it is! I actually think this is better than the Mammoet version because you can see more of the detail. Here are a few photos I took today:











































The YCC cylinders arrived today for this crane and the McNallys one so I hope to paint them and fit them to the FB over the weekend. McNallys crane should arrive in the next week or so but I will need the decals for the cylinders on that one, something I think (hope!) Ricky is working on.

All I need now is suitable loads! Have on in mind for the Mammoet version but not yet for these, unless someone starts making fully assembled windmill blades and hubs!

Thanks for looking,

Paul R

So today I decided to change out the boom on my Grohmann LTM1800 to the LG1550 boom.

Before

















Installing the Derrick Mast





Now the Main Boom





Reeving the hook block!



Now ready for a heavy lift Smile















Have to say that I am really liking it in this configuration.

Thanks for looking,

Paul R
