Nice work on the crane Greg. Plenty of detail for such a small item. Looks great. I asume that was part of the kit ?

And I like the subtle variations in your decking timbers.
You do very neat work.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Excellent job with the platform and crane, Greg. You're making great use of a top-grade kit. I went page to page 1 to see where the crane fits in; it's going to be quite a scene when you're finished.

Love the crane, Greg. Fits in with this month's Gallery Theme, too.

Greg, the exterior is catching up to the interior detail. Good work as always.

Mike, Rob, Michael, Bruce & Bill, thanks so much for your wonderful comments!

It already looks like this new loading platform & crane are coming in handy.
The 2 shop foremen are inspecting new arrivals of machine shop equipment that will be used at this shop.




Here's a closer look at that new machine shop equipment.




Thanks again everyone!

Greg

Greg,
Nice looking machinery. I see the lathe is ready for overhead belt drive, will you be modeling that feature?

Every bit you add makes this model better.

David, Mike & Bob, thanks for your interest in this and for your nice comments!

Bob, I won't be modeling any of the overhead belt drive system needed to operate this equipment.
I plan to use it right where you see it on this platform, like it's new equipment that has just arrived and still waiting to be brought over to the machine shop.

Thanks, Jerry!
Yes these pieces of equipment do come with the kit, and all of the castings offered in this kit are indeed well cast & clean.
The little adjustment wheels are etched brass that you glue onto the machinery.
Those tiny wheels really add to the looks of this machinery.
