Yes, the crane is looking very good and at normal viewing distances (when standing looking at the layout) the SLS is not a problem at all in my opinion. A great looking model, really well designed!!

Running very smoothly too, despite being reversed at some speed.

Hi Guys

Wasn't happy with the shape of the head of the jib so here's the re worked "version 3" items....





compared with this Photo kindly supplied by Simon...



Again - if you can point out something now then that may avoid it being set in stone later. This is likely to be the last revision - just the etches to re doo.

Regards
Russ

No Idea, just pointing out it wasn't on the CAD.

Hi Guys

While we wait for crane v4 to turn up were looking at the etch again.



ANYTHING relevant you think ought to be on here please advise asap!!

Hope those of you who saw the crane on Saundersfoot at the NGS AGM liked what you saw.

Russ
