Brand New Membrey's Crane from Drake

Over the 53 years that they been in business Membrey's has become a foundational company in the transportation business in Australia. This Grove GMK 5130-2 Mobile Crane is a reason addition to the Drake lineup which has been replicated with painstaking detail that is as impressive as it is intricate. 

This model has some incredible features! The detailed driver's and operator's cabs have seats and replicated controls. The operator's cab pivots to allow for realistic display options. Plus, the authentic Membrey's decoration gives this model a handsome look with eye-catching colors. 

The side counterweights are removable, and they are even branded as well. The Grove name is engraved at the base of the extendable 5-section boom, adding another small, but welcome, detail. 

The extendable outriggers help balance and support the model when the boom is extended. All the wheels, including the spare tire, are rubber with realistically replicated tread. Even the brake lights are replicated with great precision!

Realistic wire and hose placement help to round out this great-looking model, and it comes with load block and load block winch, which has realistic rigging and moveable hydraulics.

Caterpillar by Classic Construction Models

Classic Construction Models offers some of the best craftsmanship available to the diecast market today. They produce intricately detailed and finely decorated models done in limited editions. The Caterpillar 16M Motor Grader is certainly no exception. This 1:48 scale diecast model captures the superb engineering of the actual machine in high detail. The moldboard, circle and hydraulic systems are all able to be displayed in a realistic position. Front steering tilts to the side so that the model looks ready to grade miles of smooth roadway at the proper angle. A full array of fine-scale details are apparent, such as: opening doors to the full operator’s cab, a movable seven-tine rear ripper/scarifier, and a segmented midpoint to aid in steering. Accurate scale tires, lights, mirrors, and grab rails contribute to the realism, all finished with Cat-approved paint and nomenclature.
