good looking crane – it appears that the rigging actually works ?

I used plans from one of the suppliers of plans for toys but I can’t remember which one.

Actually it does. I got some ribbon from one of the hobby supply shop, I thinks was Michaels, which looked exactly like cable.

Back in the 80’s when I was building my equipment rental business, I bought two 70-ton P & H crawler cranes at an auction in Edmonton Canada which I rented to a contractor in Salt Lake City who was building a high rise condo building. This model looks just like them. By the way, it took 39 truck loads to ship the cranes from Edmonton to Salt Lake City.
