Jerry what do you mean "beautiful work" I showed Dave everything I know.


More details have been added since the last time. The cab door is made from plywood and stripwood while the ladder and landing platform were made from brass. I like brass because itís strong and wonít be easily broken like styrene.





The jib forestay and backstay pendants were also installed along with lead split shot weights. I have to find something to make lifting hooks from for my next project.



Hereís my ďeverything you wanted to know about cranesĒ cheat sheet.

Frank,

Your work on the crane is uplifting.

Looking back through this thread I have an impression that you have used little of the original kit. Thereís the cab, which you modified to add windows . . . Maybe you could put all the unused parts back in the box and ship it off to Martin Brechbiel (mwbpequod) to make something from, perhaps an obscure piece of traction equipment.
