Don't know how I missed Dave's posts showing his models.
Glad I checked in and saw them.
Amazing modeling as usual.

Frank, crane is coming together nicely and will be equally amazing.

Thanks Rick, Dave is one of the best.

Here is my Phase-2 "Kit" to replace the trucks, the "X" bracing and the angle bracing. I'll get to this is the next couple of days.



I also modified the boom mount. It no longer attaches through a hole in the cab. It now mounts on the front with a hinge point.

Your modifications and adaptions have improved the look of the crane a lot, Frank.
To me it looks like the boom on the prototype crane you posted is fixed in its position and can't be raised or lowered.
Would that be typical of such cranes?

Bill, the boom was glued to the floor of the cab but it had rigging that would allow the boom to raise and lower. Weird.

Im not much for taking SBS photos when Im in the grove and thats what happened today. I just went with the flow and churned this out. The top cross brace, X brace and the 4 angle braces with all the I beam stuff added. Plus the new trucks and wheels.

It is amazing what you can do with a laser cutter. All I need you to do is take up interest in WW1 stuff :-) Continuing to follow with keen interest.
