You will never see a model like this at a contest--local, regional, or national. It is a 1/50 scale die cast replica model of one of the world's heaviest lift capacity construction cranes. It weighs in at 33 pounds. It took me four days to assemble and rig this model for a total of 25 hours. I worked in the entry vestibule of Lanco Corp. World Headquarters, where the finished product is on display. They sell the real ones along with the Mi-Jack cranes that they manufacture and sell. Here are two photos of the finished model, one with me (6' 2" tall) standing next to it for scale. You can see I was adding the rigging to the highest boom over my head. Now I have to figure out why the upload procedure from Photobucket to the DF that I have used here successfully for years no longer works. I really detest changes made for the only sake of making changes. Nothing gets simpler. 2nd edit: I found a way to get the photos posted, but only the top half is visible. Clicking does not yield the remainder of the photos. I could use some help here. 3rd edit: Success! Thanks to WildBill50 for his tutorial last night. There are a lot of steps for each photo, but they are now here. Ed
