Hi Guys,
well no doubt the LTM11200 Mammoet is taking all the limelight right now, and for all the right reasons! However, I hope you spare a thought for these smaller guys. I picked them up a couple of weeks ago but have just now only had time to take some pictures. Due to weather, I have had to take them indoors and I don't have any special lights and stuff so I can't say I am that happy with these pics but.......... My plan is to take some more next week when I have more time Teeth Also have the LTM1200-5.1 Thomen that I want to shoot, but hope to do this outside.

Here are the pics (sorry for the rambling above!)

5095





















4100L









I have to say that these are great models and full of detail. Ian did a great review of these models (Cranes Etc) (and took a lot better pictures!)and I agree 100% with his comments.

Very nice paul..but with due deference to the 11200 9.1(nzg).the TWH models would still have the edge on detail (thus refelected in the price dept) ....have you got the LTM volvo fh 16.. ..congrats.Teeth

Smashing models Paul, looking forward to recieving mine! Wink Its difficult to get good indoor pics of models alright, my mammoet 11200 pics are pretty poor but what harm these pics look good.

Maybe you'll get some interesting outdoor pics of models in the snow this year if the weather forecasts and the snow in some parts of the UK are anything to go by.. they'd be pretty damn cool! Cool

Thanks for the compliment on the Cranes Etc review Paul. I have now posted a review of the GMK 5095 also. Like you I have both models in Wiesbauer and they look great.

Took the opportunity today to take some more pictures of these models. I won't go as far to say it is a diorama but it was a half hearted attempt Confused

Not long before it is rigged and ready to roll

I'll bear that in mind Wink

They are a great pair of cranes for sure. I think that they have somehow slipped under a lot of people radar as they don't seem to have been talked about much.

Very nice, and the snow adds a nice touch to the scenes/pics!.

Maybe you could have done a "crane off road and in snow" dioramaSilenced

Then again maybe not....Whistle

I think the ULF crew would be far better than me at doing the "crane off road and in snow (aka accident)" diorama Wink

Cool pics paul, you took my advice on some pics in the snow afterall! Smile

I think the price of them here in europe is the main reason they've slipped under most peoples radar as you said. Take the 5 axle version for around €360, an extra 30 quid and you can have a standard 11200! That must definitely have thrown an awful lot of people off buying or even talking about them Think

damn Homer I would not even think about one at that price someone is really gouging at that price! I just did the conversion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is 514usd, I can buy BOTH 4 and 5 axle cranes for thatin the US!!! Just nuts, that is how i feel when I buy WSI overseas!
Nice pics Paul,

Finally got a chance to photograph the LTM 1200-5.1 in the livery of Thomen. I have always been a fan of the LTM 1200-5.1 and I really like the Thomen livery. It lacks the fine detail now found on some other models but nonetheless, it is heavy well made model. For a more comprehensive review, check out Cranes Etc

Here are my photos:
