Yes I agree and it is nice to see a USA machine done, especially one that is lesser known.

With that said, I hope the Digging and Rigging LTM 1750-9.1 is done!

I also am looking for the Digging and Rigging version also. The crane looks great with the big jib too.

Chi Deh LTM 1750-9.1 by WSI:

This model has the YCC tyres added as well as the brackets for the TY when in transport and replacement cable reel on the RH side of the boom. I also painted the luminous red on the wheel rims as WSI omitted this detail due to the fact they were painted by Chi Deh after delivery. But it look so much better with them painted I think!

Hey Paul thanks for the pics as always! Are you grabbing any of those new LR 1600's that just came out? I think the Mediaco is supposed to have yellow tracks but they went grey??

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

I am thinking of the Mediaco but there are 300 made so will be around for a while yet. And as you said, the tracks are the wrong colour and missing the Mediaco name. NZG had said it left the factory with grey tracks but someone at Mediaco says it was delivered to the first job with yellow tracks.

Thanks,

Paul

Re. the Mediaco LR1600, it's not like NZG to make excuses!

Also, that HuaTiong AC700 is sublime. IMC have done a phenomenal job on that paintwork and the decals. If I was ever to get just one AC700, it'd have to be that one! Thanks for sharing Paul.

Paul, those closeups of the details blew me away. I started scrolling from the bottom of the page, and thought I was looking at the 1:1 crane. Remember when we used to get excited if the tail lights on a crane model were plastic instead of painted-on?
Cheers!

I am really loving the way modern model outriggers have been engineered,and fit into the profile of the crane.That,alone is a major improvement.

nice pictures Paul,

the Kynnigsrud LTM 1500-8.1 looks great, but i don't understand why the decal is at the front of the boom ? At the real crane it is on the back of the boom ...

A lot of photos show the decal of one of the real ones with decal at the back. But there is also a real one with the decal at the front.
