Paul, I keep waiting for you to put a hardhat on that mechanic (below) in all your pictures. LOL Wink Wink

What is the stand material you are using for your figures? It looks like it might be clear sheet styrene (if so, what thickness works best - it looks like the edges might be curling some so it really must be thin stock)? I really like that idea.

I just used a plastic bottle and cut a small square out. But of course plastic bottles are round hence the edges curling up.

Paul, just sharing my tip for figures:

I mix a drop of epoxy (size of a penny or so) in which I dip the feet of the figure. Then I leave it standing in the back of a plastic cover (like ice cream, margarine or so). You want to use a flexible and glossy pot cover, so you just need to bend it to remove it.

Epoxy remains clear and makes for a smaller and more realistic stand.

Don L.

I utilize the plastic from anything that comes in a heat sealed package and the following:



The product claims: "Will not stain finishes or dry out"

I don't take the chance, hence the plastic base.

I gotta admit, after seeing the Cranes Etc review of the Whytes 1500 I was very impressed. It's an unusual colour combination and works well on the crane. Nice pics as always!

HI Paul, the silver on the Meier looks sharp. Even more special that it is so exclusive.

Thanks for sharing. Take care and all the best.

I love the detail of the Riga Mainz logo on the cab seat back, that's a nice touch.

Did the model come with any certificate describing the 500th LTM 500 delivery?

Thanks so much for sharing. Take care and all the best.

Sadly it did not. I was hoping that maybe something different/special would be done such as a different box (like the Bok Seng or Chi Deh boxes) and even a certificate. But nothing.

Hey Paul are those counter weights for the Riga 1500 supposed to be black and not red? I was thinking of picking that one up and noticed online they are black on the real machine.

If it's mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and automated I can build it.

Hi,
The pictures I've seen of the Riga Mainz LTM 1500-8.1 show red CW's on the real machine. But it does seem that other cranes in their fleet use black ones.
