Thanks very, very much for the photos Brandon and I appreciate the time and effort to get them all set up outside Applause

I couldn't help but notice in the fifth from last photo the track shape difference between the 1750 and 1600......

added the anti slip texture to the top, was a little difficult to find some photos of the real one showing the bottom of the boom, not exactly the same but close enough. i think it looks way better, only thing left to do to it is paint the boom sections black, unless conrad comes out with the jib or ycc comes out with etch kits









added a piece to the last tele sections to, dont know if the real one has it..








how she sits right now

She looks really great! I need to pick one up, just holding out to see what liveries come out? Where did you get that grip tape stuff?? That really adds a lot to the cranes.

Thanks, the lr1600 is an awesome model!
As for the grip tape, I actually got a roll from a friend in Tokyo. I have no idea where he got it.

well i worked up enough motivation to take the ptc outside to fully raise it and get a few pics, this will probably be the only time she will stretch out like this, unless i get a bigger house. was alot of work to get her outside and reassembled and back up but was totally worth seeing it fully raised! what a beast!















and yours truly
