    So you rob the bank? ;)


    Not the biggest fan of international. But diecast masters make a great models and you will like it. I think it comes with 1 and 2 axle boosters (not showed on official photos) and with very nice 12m it is great value for price.

    You wont be happy with d8r, it is old norscot model just get metal tracks but it is ok for the price.
    D9t is amazing model, 797 too but def out of my pocket range 300usd is bit too much.
    You will be bit dissapointed with 555d, also revised old model for 100usd i have 545,

    My Christmas presents to me.

    could not find real truck like Kenworth or Peterbilt so I took the international. It’s a start …….

    Well you can easily become addicted
    Best thing is when my wife asks me why do you never buy something for yourself (not models but anything),
    I am thinking in my head, if you only know how much i spent....

    Trailer would be about 250.000e, crane around 100.000 crane sliding system maybe 20000, lifting platform maybe 10000

    Around 370 in my opinion.

    This allows you to use much smaller crane for same work as it is very close to load
