What a 4.2 metre LEGO crane looks like

April 25th, 2011 by RoscoHead

The EndWell, after a crane mishap while packing up after Brickvention 2011, I decided not to re-build the CC-2800. There was way too much damage, and it had been together for too long anyway. I never got to raise the full 5 metre boom, but I did manage to get a pic at BV with approx. 4.2 metre boom.

It was of course a day of total fire ban, with strong unpredictable winds, and during the day there were reports of several large bushfires around Melbourne’s outer suburbs. The full toll wasn’t known to most though, until the next day. With fires still burning, people were already counting the cost. The final toll would not be known for many days.
