TWH – Potain MDT – Tower Crane – 1 50 Scale | eBay
It would have been better if each counterweight was supported separately on the counter jib such that a part loaded configuration was possible along with a shorter main jib. It also has a fine basket attached with railings and a mesh floor. By any assessment this is a pptain quality model.
There is hardly any plastic used at all. The counter jib also does not have the ability to fold for transport like the original.
A Potain branded screwdriver is provided with the model as the screw sizes used are very small. Thirteen mast sections are supplied with the model. The Potain MDT is a medium size tower crane with a jib of up to 60m length at which a 1.
All the main tower 17 functions can be operated.

The base of the crane consists of a large heavy base plate on which the cross-shaped support structure is mounted. The cab has good internal detail including a footrest, and the windows have windscreen wipers as well as subtle sun shading. The only issue is that it appears on the large size scaling at over 2m high.
It features a working chute – here shown open with the handle pulled down. However it is very good value for money when it is considered what is offered. The ladders set a new standard as they are complete with a safety cage.

The maximum capacity of the crane is 8t. An outer plain cardboard box encloses an inner picture box which has picture of the model occupying its entire length. Exceptional detailing continues through into the tube of the cab mast with a ladder and a cabling.
Trolley and trolley motor. A large concrete bucket comes with the model. The crane turns, and the hoist, trolley and derrick can all be worked by using the supplied key, and they work well. The separate sections are joined by screws on the underside but surprisingly rivets are used for the top connections which means the sections are not easily potaun. If a set of lifting chains had been provided this would also have complimented the model well.
It is a first class model and is very highly recommended.

Jib sections are screwed together at the bottom but riveted at the top. The skilled collector will be able to carefully drill out the rivets and replace with small screws and nuts in order to vary the jib length, or to display pieces as transport loads.
Overall a very heavy base results and this provides robust stability for the model. It is a fully detailed bucket, all in metal and has a working chute mechanism which works very well. First class model engineering. There are 16 ballast blocks which interlock to form the base ballast which may not represent a common arrangement on a real crane but they are much less vulnerable to being knocked off at model scale. Overall TWH have produced an exceptionally fine model which combines first class model engineering with excellent detailing to produce something which is almost indistinguishable from the real crane.
Ladders have safety cages. Some of the other parts. Operation of the hoist can be on two falls or four falls of rope and this is set by using a pin in the hook block. Features Any tower crane model depends on being able to stand straight and be strong enough to withstand a degree of handing when erected. At the back the counterweights are copies of the arrangement on the real crane and are textured to represent concrete.
The cab mast cannot fully fold for transport as per the original and the counterweights can only be displayed in the full configuration because of the support system employed.
The mast sections are excellent including detailed lattice work, and jacking points for a climbing frame. If you have the space, tower crane erection can be posed. Detail Initial impressions on getting the crane out of the box are that TWH have produced a very detailed model on behalf of Potain.
The model is easy to assemble out of the box and requires no reeving. Each section itself is not a single casting but is made up of two pieces. The first few pages contain data sheets for the real crane and the rest has a very clear 11 step guide to assembling the model. On the inside of the access door to the cab there is a tiny printed load chart.
The box offers good protection to the model and although the outer cardboard box of the review model had seen some rough handling, the model was undamaged.
