Looks like a nice model and one I don't have as yet. I'm a little disappointed that the handrails are not interchangeable like some other models between transport and work, especially as the bigger brother ATF400G-6 has this feature.

Yes, it is probably because it is an older model. It will be nice if WSI produce other cranes in Mediaco colours.

Ian , I always appreciate the info you supply with your reviews !! One thing that I would appreciate even more is if you added the production number for models with company logos because when i purchase a model with a company logo on it I want the more limited ones , that always helps if I decide to resale the model down the road !!

Thanks for your comments. I entirely agree and I try to provide production numbers for limited editions when they are published eg NZG normally say 300. However, mostly the information is not made available.

I have suggested to various model makers that they should include numbered collector cards with limited editions, as these would add value, and the cost would be very small. However the response is usually along the lines that collectors in most countries are not really interested in this kind of thing......

You do know the whole platform of the model can actually raise and lower to pick up the containers...?
