As always, these are great shots of great looking models. The AC700 in Sarens colors is my favorite of what's been offered so far.

Never really been a fan of the Sarens livery,but that AC 700 looks so good in any colour.Love looking at it,so many little details.Outstanding model by IMC.Do you have Sarens support trucks?

Just thinking the crane would look really good,in transport mode,with the weight frames,and all the other bits,on trucks.Very nice,all in one actual livery.Do you know if it will ever be released in Ainscough livery?

I’m sure Ainscough will be done.

I did have a couple of trucks for the Mammoet version:






Sarens version didn’t come with the frames for the counterweights etc....

Mammoet LTM 1750-9.1:



















I hope to set it up tomorrow for a lift but so far so good. It has been well made and is quite well detailed, though lacks certain details in some areas. Example of this would be that there is no bracket to hold the TY pendants when in road mode and the TY pulleys don't look right in road mode because you cannot split the pulleys from the pendants correctly.

Having said that, it is a really nice model.

Very nice looking machine.I personally,prefer the look of that crane,to the Demag AC 1000.As I like the boom,over the cab.I know the Demag can have more boom,it just don't look right,with boom behind cab.I know the 1200,is closer,but the whole thing comes off,for transport.

Good lighting=great picsApplause You can see loads of features.What is that walkway,between the outriggers?Does that have to be transported as two pieces?

I think the walkways are more for safety when the CW’s are being stacked. I know in the real world Mammoet don’t use them, same as they don’t use the supports for the operators cab when in road mode.

Yes they are transported as two separate sections.

Lighting is key, especially for Mammoet models as there is so much black! So thank you for the compliment.

The 1750 is a lovely model and a really great looking crane. I'm guessing in the 700-750T class the Demag still takes the crown though. Nice pics!

Its too bad the boom for the LTM 1750 is so short at 50 something meter. I understand they want it within traveling weight but should have option of at least 80m like the ltm 1500. Also, will we see WSI make the addon lluffing jib for it?
