My Kit contained four telescope feet for the outrigger of the boom plus two spare parts..
And one on four telescope feet for the outrigger of the truck was missing…
The telescope feet for the boom and the truck are not interchangeable.
I’m a little bit disappointed

This model looks great. Awesome show piece. Takes up a lot of room but I highly recommend it. Only troubles I had with it are the 4 self tapping screws for the luffing jib winch. This is a must have for any model collector.

Pretty much like others have said. This was my first experience with NZG and reading the reviews comparing it to TWH and looking at smaller models at hobby shops, which were probably older castings that held the standards of some years ago, I was assured by Mr. Neumann that I wasn't going to be disappointed. He was right. Although there are some places in which you know other manufacturers have paid greater attention, it doesn't detract from the overall rating of the model.
The model is quite heavy and solid, the drivetrain is very detailed, the in-casting detail is good, and the engineering of the model, at the steering, booms, outriggers and winch reels is very good. Some collectors might not like the system NZG uses to keep the model together, as NZG uses nuts and bolts that you fasten using tiny wrenches that com with the model, but if you're like me, a modeler and not just a collector, you'll appreciate the versatility this system gives you. You can pose the model in so many ways, and collectors with little space will like this feature. Excellent rendition of an awesome crane that astonishes even those unfamiliar. Good work, NZG.

At first I was kind of hesitating to make this purchase do to not liking NZG models but I was pleasantly surprised so much so that I purchased another one . Very well made as far as mechanical it's great and for the price you cannot even touch the quality . I highly recommend this model and trust me before I received mine I would of sworn that I would never purchase another NZG model.

This crane is huge. I have not rigged it yet but have assembled and extended the boom. The detail is outstanding but like a previous review, it is not the same as a TWH model. Having said that, I must also say this model is a must for any crane collector. With the jib extension this model is taller than many people's ceilings. Mine will have to be displayed in the travel mode unfortunately. The only negative would be the instructions, which could be a little more thorough. If you collect cranes, don't miss this one!
