Decent load.
Comment on this model.

This kit comprises two boom sections, associated plastic pendants and additional counterweights.

It is in the original Sennebogen grey to go with Conrad 2733, the Sennebogen 5500 Starlifter.


The kit comes in a plain box with a sticker indicating that it contains the parts.  The parts are packed within expanded polystyrene.

The review set had no defects or missing parts.

No instructions are supplied.

Detail and Features

The kit includes one section for the main boom, and one for the luffing fly jib.  The sections are well made and strong.

Sufficient pendants are supplied to cover all configurations of the kit within the base model.

Also included are eight extra counterweights (four on each side).  These improve the stability of the model but are not realistic compared to the real crane.

Quality and Price

The kit matches the quality of the base model and was reasonably priced.


It is good as a transport load or to enhance the base model, although it was only produced in original Sennebogen grey rather than the later 'Go for Green' colours.
