[Review] 1/43? Scale PSE&G Cherry Picker

This is an International cherry picker utility truck. My grandfather worked for the company before he passed and so I usually received PSE&G stuff on Christmas. This truck has been in my collection for some time as a result. I'm not entirely sure of the scale but it's roughly the same size as my other 1/43s were.

At a quick glance you can see that this truck is highly detailed.

All of the tool boxes that are on the 1:1 versions are outlined nicely. Sadly nothing opens up though.

With the boom fully extended, this model gets to be monstrously tall.

The cherry picker swivels and pivots at 3 seperate points so positioning the crane how you want is easy.

Company logo along with the make of the truck. Plastic headlight lenses and side marker tampos. Look at the bolts on the wheels and the riveted steps. Lots of wonderful detail.

At the back, there are two stabilizers that hold the truck steady on windy days when the lift is extended. They can even be extended in this model!

This is a great model that I know will be enjoyed for many years to come. 10/10, if you like utility vehicles and happen upon on of these, grab it. You won't be disappointed.
