The inspiration for this model came (as does much of my inspiration for crane models) from its use locally, allowing me to get lots of good pics. I have uploaded some of the shots I took to this gallery folder. I have now seen it working in 2 different configurations, and I aim to be able to model both.
The scale was chosen for me by the crawlers - the largest wheel available that would be possible to use as a sprocket is the 24x43 wheel, and it turns out to have a diameter about 1/13th of the real crane's sprockets. Actually the model swings a bit between 1/13 - 1/14 scale, but most is closest to 1/13.
The project will consist of 3 stages:
