This Model is one of my very first,- designed & built way back in the mid-1980’s and is based on a real Fifty ton Telescopic Boom Mobile Crane. Everything works,- has cable-controlled telescopic boom lift, & height adjustment, along with an automatic cable brake on the main lifting winch, full circle swing, even sliding working outriggers. Max lift height,- 1.3 metres, ( 53” ) Even designed a highly detailed Woodworking Plan on A3 size paper which I have sold numerous copies of over the years. As it has about 20 something A3 pages it cannot be successfully reduced to a PDF document, so it’s paper copy only for anyone interested,- Simply message me for more information.
