The model comes already assembled in the box so I didn't want to

disassemble it right away but like this picture shows in the manuel

 the model folds up for easy transport

Here's a shot of the Liebherr next to a Sennebogen ABI piler for

size comparison

A nice display pad for the model to sit on is even provided

Two pilier sheets are provided that lock into the display pad

Pilier sheets locked into the display, ones long and ones short

to look as if its already been hammered in

Set the LRB 255 on the pad and engage the hammer head and you have

one heck of a nice display

This is an awesome model NZG did a great job with all parts being functional,

 all rivits touched up with paint, metal linked tracks, and all the other

awesome details this model is a great addition to any collection!
