If you want to be the envy of your construction office, just show up with this masterpiece! It is a 1:23.5 scale model of the Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane made out of LEGO bricks, and it's not just for show either. It's fully drive-able and controllable with a cab that swings into position, outriggers, and a telescoping boom.
The real Liebherr sports a 171 foot boom, 9 axles with 18 wheels, and is rated at 900 tons. The crane is also modular, meaning that its boom, upper engine, and rear outriggers can be removed in order to travel with highway restrictions. The real life version is a cool machine, but I think this LEGO model has it beat. Now for the bad news: this Lego creation is the work of a genius, Dawid Szmandra, and is sadly not for sale. We can all dream though.
