Here is the finished model of the Hydraulic crane. At this stage it has not been oiled but I will post more photos of that when it is done.
This is another T&J fantastic model that requires quite a bit of plan study as there are quite a few mistakes. If any one is planning on building one of these they could save themselves a bit of time by checking Dutchies and my blogs.
The platform timber is dark Walnut, the cab and most of the lighter timber is New Zealand Kauri, and the dark timber on the boom remains a mystery to me.

Outstanding project!!!
and will be a real knock out when you get the finish on it to bring out the wood grain.
This will fit right in with the rest of your great collection.

That is one impressive build PJ. It’s not till you extend the boom and zoom out that one can appreciate the magnitude of the model. Will need to put it on a top shelf of the cabinet and cut a hole in the top to accommodate it.

Very Very Nice I have wanted to do that one for quite some time but have not gotten around to it yet? Maybe this will get me motivated to finish my current project.
Again very nice.

That’s a great looking crane! I like the contrasting woods you chose—and I’m looking forward to seeing it with the finish on!

I don’t like it either that there is no model tab to put it under. The nearest thing is toy which it definitely is not

What a beautiful miniature crane. It has a lot of wonderful details and is made with a lot of fine skill and craftsmanship.
