This was my first 1:50 scale crane and I was blown away by the detail, craftsmanship, and functionality of this model. I operate a larger version of this crane for work so I know exactly what's what, and every detail from the ATB weight to the sliding outrigger feet is incorporated. I watched the review on Cranes etc. and was impressed; however, you don't get the sense of how great this model is until you hold it your own hands. The relatively low price is perfect for a person not sure if they are ready to spend $1,000 on a much bigger model. The only problem I had was that the hook block came reeved with a 4 part and when hanging the rope, it twists, as if the cable was stretched, so I would recommend just a 2 part. All in all I give WSI an A+++!!! The only thing not in the box was a set of keys...
