Man, I am not a truck crane guy at all. I like the real machines, but not into the model stuff. I have to say this is the 2nd truck crane model I like. Probley will never get one, but nice to see what yall have. I also really like the new LG 1750 with the wind attachment. NIce shots!

When I first saw this crane announced, I thought the livery was very nice! The model does not disappoint and is full of detail:

















Having the pull out offset pulley is a nice touch





Has quite a good reach when the fly jib is fitted



Moveable operators cab





The Liebherr 'load' is included

Beautiful crane Paul! Thanks for the post, how are the boom cylinders on these WSI cranes? I don't have one yetd'oh! Do they hold pretty well?

Thank you, Mark

These hold pretty well. As you can see from the pictures it was boomed down quite low and did not move. Not sure it would hold it that low forever but they are quite good.

That is one nice looking crane. I've got the WSI Mercedes HK70 crane in Mammoet livery and I really like it, but this one seems to have even more detail. Darn, I may have to get this one Cool

Here is the latest addition to my LTM 11200-9.1 portfolio, the van Marwijk. This also look really smart in this livery, though not sure it is my favourite!





















I had planned on taking a family shot but weather and time got the better of me Sad

Thanks for looking,

What livery are you doing the repaint in? I would like to do one but don't have the time. I'd do H N Krane if I could. Senn AG maybe as well as it would be an easy one!

Thanks Steffen, but I will have to concede that your photos and diorama's are somewhat better!

Not sure when my Mediaco and Eisele will arrive. Hopefully in the next week or two. And then Grohmann in time for Christmas!!

One thing is for sure though, I'll not be getting the jib for each one of them! Cost and space prohibitive.

great 11200 collection paul, i really like that sarens one, looks sharp, but i like that grohmann version the most, looks great silver, wish i could get them but i dont really like having 2 or more of the same exact model, except the manitowoc 4100, they came out in different configurations so its different, cant wait to see the family photo of all the 11200s when they all comeApplause

so how many members have/are getting every version available?
