It's certainly an excellent looking model, and nice to see metal tracks (YCC will be at a loose end!).
I play gypsy jazz guitar (Django Reinhardt) so I bought a second hand Selmer copy, handmade in Israel. I already have quite a few gypsy jazz guitars, but can't resist trying another, and it might be that I pass it on to a friend who's after one. Considering the time and craftsmanship that go into making an acoustic guitar by hand, they make models seem rather expensive for what you get (doesn't stop me though!).

Looks like a really great model! It's too bad IMC doesn't keep the booklets for every livery. I will have to keep an eye out for an Aertssen version. Thanks for the review Ian.

Can you check your scoring Ian? The maths doesn't add up!

After a quick back-to-school session, it is correct now. Thanks!

Thanks for the review Ian, looks like one of the best mobile crane models out there. I had to order one right away.

It does look a great model! I am waiting for a nice livery Smile

My only concern is the decal on the right hand side of the boom that Cranes Etc. did not pick up on. The OET in MAMMOET looks out of line on the review model and on some pics of other models I have seen. I hope this is corrected.

I seen that decal issue as well. Hope maybe it was a one off deal. I would like to see a Colonia version in the future.

WSI have produced what looks like a superb model there. The paint finish in particular is spot on.
As for the Joal JCB review, one word comes to mind - fruitloop! I'm so glad I'm not alone in my silliness!
