Oxford Diecast OO reach stacker

My Oxford Diecast OO 1/76 scale reach stacker has arrived Cat No: 76KRS001. Released just 11 days ago, it has made fast passage from the UK. Fully posable, the unit looks very impressive. The only down side is the hydraulic lines are painted on, and at full reach, the containers do not hang straight. It took a bit a careful arrangement to get the container to attach to the handling arm, but it does work.
The above photos shows attached to a C=Rail 40' standard container. Below, the comparison with my HO scale reach stacker.

Next, in Malcolm livery.

And arrived

There has been one other model produced. Atlas Editions reproduced the Konecranes reachstacker in Stobart blue. These models were released as part of a 'part works' series on Eddie Stobart models, and were made by Oxford Diecast.


This model has been reported to be going to be re-released by the mid to end of 2014, Cat No: 76KRS003, under the Oxford Diecast banner.

Here is a real one, operating in  a SMV sales video.
