New Manitowoc Cranes Coming from Towsleys!

The New Manitowoc MLC300 and MLC650 Crawler Cranes have been outfitted with some of the newest and best systems, and several of these great features are being recreated in 1/50 scale replicas by Towsleys. These highly-detailed diecast models are set to be released during the first quarter of 2017! While that may seem like a long time, I assure you that, after looking at all that these cranes have to offer, it will be well worth the wait!
