Got myself some real rubber tire for fenders today, came across these VW Milka scale 1/87. They have some tire profiles on them that stands out really well, better then the stock ones.

Nice, I love the winch detail. The lights are 0.2 x 0.6 mm smt leds. The crane just has a micro (3.7 g) geared to it so that I get about 270 deg rotation.
