Excelent job. Being in the crane industry I would love to build one of these but i’m with hairy, I don’t think I have your patience. Great attention to detail.

I had a crane similar to that on a job down in Nicaragua last year. It had a little more boom I think, around 220 ft.

i like nothing more than watching a skilled crane operator work. You think you could shrink me down and let me run that bad boy? great work and bless your patience.
