This scale model was individually hand-built and painted in the traditional Link-Belt red, white, and black color scheme. The 1:48 scale allowed the inclusion of a host of fine details and features, such as a hand built segmented tubular lattice boom, working drums, functional load block, opening doors, 360-degree rotating house, rolling wheels and rubber tires. Featured details on this model included individual wiper blades, mirrors, lights, chromed exhaust stacks, handrails and finished interiors in the cabs. Rubber tires mounted on detailed wheels, proper rigging and correct markings add to the authenticity of this model.
Those who ordered the Link-Belt HC-268 also had the option of purchasing single or double boom section inserts to extend the boom an additional 7.5 or 15 inches respectively. Customers could also request to have their model painted in one of four alternate paint schemes.
