The theme this month are those ingenious devices designed to lift items from one level to another: cranes, hoists, and derricks. So post your photos, either prototype or model so we can all enjoy them.

I once again want to caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller

Here's the small crane on my Cliffside Mine. It's scratch-built:

Not sure if the intent of this theme included railroad cranes, so I'll post one of mine:




This is a model of a Quebec, North Shore & Labrador crane I decorated using a photo of the prototype supplied by a friend. It's a Walthers/Roco model with only a few additions such as the exhaust stacks, rear lights and boom tie down chains. Most work was done on the paint scheme - quite colorful!

A couple of boom trucks used by the utilities back in the 30's, both Autocars. The first is an electrical transformer truck with a scratch built bed and boom.


This next one is a pole setting truck that has the cable run from the hand cranked winch in the back under the bed and then up to the boom sheave.


And finally a 50's REO Gold Comet in a junk yard mule.

It's an unlikely lift scene, but here it is.

A great start once again, folks. Many thanks! Let's keep the photos coming. Bob, rail based cranes and 'big hooks' are certainly welcome.

Here is my version of Campbell's Quincy Traveling Crane.

Here's a scratchbuilt hoist. Originally it was meant to be used in a dock scene. Currently it is sitting on a shelf.



Regards
Martin

The Tichy crane is indeed a classic, Carl.

Martin, that is a very nice scratch build.

I thought that I would post some shots of Mike C's rendition of Campbell's Quincy Traveling Crane.
