thats a great little line up there Paul,you may aswell add a Liebherr liveried one too,can't leave that one out now

Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

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.

Great pictures Paul. Thanks for taking the time to take and post them. Your LTM11200 collection looks just like mine, lol. Now I'm waiting for Eisele and Mediaco which are in the mail Teeth


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.

Paul R


Totally agree, I will probably end up getting just one jib and call it a day.

im trying to get as many as possible.... i missed the Mammoet one and at the time i didnt care but now i wish i had it, i skipped out on the FB and McNally's versions on purpose cause they dont do anything for me, but all the rest so far im trying for, need to find money for Mediaco and Eisele..... its tough though with all the other models that come out, so many models and not enough money to go around!

great looking family portrait Paul, cant wait to be able to have the same type of picture going as well

Absolutely! But of all the LTM 11200's out there, I would really like to see H N Krane done as a model and then for WSI to do the TGX paired with the Goldhofer trailer from KSM Teeth

Here are some pictures of the LTM 11200-9.1 Eisele. I must admit, I don't seem to get fed up of these models and quite enjoy rigging them. However, I am not very happy taking photos indoors. Especially when I forget to clean the lens Sad So apologies for rather poor quality pictures.

But here they are. If the weather is better tomorrow, which wouldn't be hard compared to the last few days, then I am heading outside!

*EDIT* Managed to get outside today!































Thanks for looking,

idk why but i have always been smitten over the Eisele livery..... this was one of the 112s that i wanted to most and then others came out and i put this livery on the back burner.... i dont know how much longer im going to be able to resist buying this one along with the Mediaco, seems every day is a struggle LOL

This is one livery I have been looking forward to and it does not disappoint! Unfortunately it did suffer some minor damage but I think I can repair it easily. And then I also broke one of the small hydraulic cylinders that lift the cab up Sad Not sure if I can get a replacement but we'll see.

Was going to get some photos of it with boom extended but weather prevented that.





















Thanks for looking,

That Mediaco one does look good....it might be my 4th and final 112. Think the mediaco one would be the one i bought the upcoming luffer for too.

Great pictures as always Paul.

Snow has started melting now and it was a very nice day. As there have been no recent packages days, I decided to take some pictures of the Mammoet LTM 11200-9.1. Only reason for this was that I have drilled out the boom sections so I can now set up at 50% boom as well as 100%.

Here are a few pics I took of it today:

Thanks Graham. In terms of detail they are excellent and YCC's version 2 spanner is a little better than the version 1, which means you can tighten the collar quite a bit more. However, I still wouldn't trust them at a low angle for a long period of time and because of the detail, they are quite fragile. I did have an issue with my first set of main lift rams but YCC sorted this out very quickly and professionally.

I should also point out that the jib cylinders and 5t CW's are from Hermann Muller in Germany. I bought those at Bemmel earlier this year.
