Ralph Rigg's

Large Floating Crane


Ralph Rigg based this model on a floating crane which works in the dock system at Barrow-in-Furness. (This information was correct at the end of March 1999) This version was built without regard to any constraints on parts but a No.10 set at least is required. The crane makes quite a large model being approximately 5ft long, 1 ft wide and 6 ft high (1.5x.45x1.8 metres).

Instructions cover the hull; winding mechanism; lower deck; superstructure; control room; upper superstructure; jib and hooks, fully illustrated with colour photographs.

The leaflet is illustrated with eight colour photographs and a dimensioned drawing of the prototype.
