I was over at jibticklers very impressive crane collection this afternoon and he's got the Weisbaur LG1550 and i'm sold, going to get one for sure but really want it in our livery so put some feelers out to see how many people would genuinely buy a Ainscough LG1550. Going to speak to our marketing and see if Chou would be interested in doing a limited run in Aisncough.

Great looking crane anyway Paul, get yourself a nice trailer to sit the boom on now.

I would buy one, but you probably would be waiting 2-3 years (at least!) to get a run from Chou. Goodluck, she would be a sweet madel to have.

There is unfortunately very few about, LTM1160 and LTM1070 are about all i've really seen. If you want a 160 Jibtickler was got one for sale, make him a offer! I've got a LTM1300 I got of Ricky (giftmodels) that is top class. A LG1550 will be amazing, don't know if you've seen ours but it look very tidy.

Sensational pics as always, Paul. Is that a "real world" boom change out for the 1800 - going from hydraulic to lattice - or something that only works in "model world?"
That 1800 is really a stunning piece. May have to break into the retirement account...

Gaz - you could count me in. Would make a great model. As for the trailer, yes it would nice to have one.

Ulf - as far as I can make out, Grohmann do have the lattice option for their LTM1800 but whether or not they have had it set up like this is another question Wink

Thanks,

The Ainscough Crane they talk about is the "millenium Lifter" Which was sold to Grohmann, And ainscough went and brought Baldwins old machine, Then Bladwins brought a brand new one, then sold it to Sarens then Bladwins brought The Seaforth, Ashleigh Lifting ( Or something along that lines) ............................ I think thats correct.

nice Paul! there aren't too many of her set up reaching for the skies,cheers for posting

I still ever so slightly prefer the FB 112 Teeth

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.

Hello all,
I never really planned on getting this model but I saw an ad in the DHS classifieds and ended up buying it for a very reasonable price. Would also like to thank Rich for selling it to me and the friendly emails. He is obviously a member of DHS but a self-confessed lurker!

So here are the pictures I took just now:















The only thing I have done so far is to add Musky Master to it! If things work out then I am planning on adding the YCC kit to it plus a few other details such as license plates. If I get really adventurous then I will paint one of the luffers I have for it!

Thanks for looking,

Paul R

These things seem to be breeding! Got my Sarens LTM 11200-9.1 during the week. Painted up a pair of YCC cylinders yesterday and took these photos today. Didn't have time to rig the crane completely as I still have some 'honey do's' to do Confused





















Low sun and small trees around the house were causing very annoying shadows =>:-<
but nonetheless, it is a great model!
