Dragline

 

  A Set 10+ Model 

 

Redesigned and Described by Roger Marriott

 

The well-known model of a Ransomes and Rapier W14 Walking Dragline on the covers of 1950's set manuals has been redesigned for building with a Set 10 plus a few extra parts.

 

Its five movements - walking, slewing, luffing, hoisting and dragging are controlled independently from one side of the model using two PDU motors via a simplified mechanism. 

 

An improved main bearing, using Large Toothed Quadrants, provides smooth and realistic slewing.

 

28 pages including text, diagrams, colour photographs and parts list.
