This accessory kit consists of a chain and hook, two types of lifting fork, and a set of spreader plates.


The model box is a simple CGM Models labelled box.  Each part is contained in its own poly bag.

Detail and Features

The metal lifting chain has a single leg with a painted hook.

The lifting forks are also metal parts with the frames being realistically thin.  One has a variable lifting point.

The spreader plates are metal with outrigger pad holders for small crane pads.

These accessories pose well with smaller 1:50 crane models.

Quality and Price

These are nice quality metal parts which are well painted.

The pricing level is reasonable.


It is good to see a collection of accessories for smaller crane models.  These are well made and look good.
