Nice review (as always!), but I was hoping it would be another Plonker.

Nice review Ian. I didn't know it came with flashing lights until this review! Nice tip on the hook reeving also.

as always Ian, excellent work ... when i first began collecting, i would look at your reviews to see what i wanted next ... lol ... we have come a long way my friend Applause ... i would like to see marker lights (in red) on the boom tops of the larger lattice booms as well as the larger telescopic ones ... i guess it may be a little more complicated with wires and such, but with the real cranes (lattice booms) we run a wire to connect to the A2B, weigh load, and marker lights anyway ... might add a little realism to the models! thanks again ...

How does the Cranes Etc guy find his iphone? lol

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

... It's better to be silent and thought a fool, then to speak up and remove all doubt

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.

Nice review.

That ladder is a good example of one of the things I've never liked about most die-cast... It's pure luck whether or not you get one that has issues like that. Other types of models, such as rail... would never have flaws like that.

He must figure it's a lost cause because it's under the front wheel and there is no hope of finding it and it probably wouldn't work anymore after he got it out, hahaha!!!d'oh! d'oh! Whistle Whistle Liar Liar

DPD1, so true on the railroad models but I guess that's the price we pay for our addiction to diecast!!

I'm a kid at heart, so I will play with any model construction vehicle from 1:87 scale to 1:1 scale!!!!

Age is a state of time NOT a state of mind!!

the LTM 1050 looks like a great crane, i have the Michielsens version on order, WSI hit it out of the park with all the details on this crane but that pin to hold the boom up is really a huge eye sore, they couldnt just use a small pin like all the other pins on the crane.... really dropped the ball on that part but aside from that everything else looks fantastic!!

Your LTM 1050 review is excellent. I don't want to see another one of your reviews or I'll spend to much $. LOL
