Beautiful! I hope you share some photos of her built-up. Or, at least without the packing foam. Smile

Awesome! I really like the last shot, with the boom at full extension and low angle. I was hoping to see a Preiser guy wearing a Rammstein t-shirt and driving a Ferrari, to make the scene 100% accurate.

What country does that Atlas 1750,come from?A quick google search only turns up Atlas the crane manafacturers,a South African firm(red and white),only medium sized machines.The quote on the crane is English,so is it American?,the 'inc' says it is.I'm sure I would be aware of it.

Atlas Crane Service Inc are based in IL, USA.

The company took the vast majority of this production with very few available to collectors.

That is a great looking color scheme. I'm glad you were able to get one from the batch.

Yes I agree and it is nice to see a USA machine done, especially one that is lesser known.

With that said, I hope the Digging and Rigging LTM 1750-9.1 is done!

Paul, I missed that post of the Wiesbauer AC700. That's great to see, kind of like a bit of closure. It reminds me of a very custom, very detailed AC700, made by a wonderful gentleman in the Netherlands, about 20 years ago. Now, all of us that drooled over it and said "I wish I had that" are now able to. Erik S. thank you for all you've done for this hobby.

Hey Paul,

Your pictures are allways in best positions... the Atlas crane is nothing for me but it looks very very inpressive and very nice...

It’s good to see other companies too...

Thanks for your pictures...
