I see you're 21 again then Steve!

Crane looks amazing but I'm also intrigued by your tower base. I guess you built it?

Hi Paul,

21 again! I wish!!!!!! You are right about the base scratch built, was going to be part of a dio that I had planed, but never got around to doing it, made from scrap bits of ply wood and Plastruck sections and sheets, the front of the electrical panel is a decal of a VSD (variable speed drive) inverter panel I photographed at work.

looks great!
wonder if NZG will bring out an extension kit? maybe just 2 more 40ft main boom sections and a small fixed jib?

Thanks again Steve for the photos - it is an awesome looking crane especially in the Mammoet livery.

Hmm, I'm half tempted to sell my Felbermayr LR1750 and buy this baby Think

GREAT looking model. Thank you for the photos. And great job on the tower base. Does anyone know off hand if any more liveries are planned or has anyone heard any rumors?

frusso, not to get to complicated,but yes you do use both sides of the winch drum. Basically you start in the middle and work to the outside, cranes etc web site has a good review of the reeving process watch the video of the assemble, should make things clearer. Hope that helps any probs just shout up. http://www.cranesetc.co.uk/library/nzgreviews/843/843review.htm

I wonder what livery will be released next. There are plenty of good options: Ainscough, Breuer&Wasel, Felbermayr, Sarens, Schmidbauer, Weldex, AmQuip, KR Wind, Riga Mainz
