The crane is done. As always also this Toys and Joys plan was a lot of work. I have made a blog serie about the building process. I want to thank Dee1 for his cooperation, and of course all other which responded on and viewed my blogs,

Thanks for watching.

All comments are welcome

Dutchy I knew it was going to be great but WOW!!! what a master piece.
It shines like a new penny even the cables have a shine to them, Out Standing Just Out Standing.
If some just knew what a brain game these builds are they’d jump in for the fun or run away really fast. lol.

I’m not sure I would call that a toy – more like a work of art!

I enjoyed the blog.

Very nice detailed job on the crane. I am just finishing up a D9 entirely of my own design. I know how much work you put into this very nice project.
