Well thanks to the old man, got some string. Its not quite musky master, it looks similar to whats on my Mammoet LTM 1200 conrad model. Anyway after a bit of head scratching, found out how to take it apart. Its been re strung, got glue on the knots. So, hopefully its now fixed.

As Mammoet says "SIZE DOES MATTER". Slowly collecting Mammoet 1:50 scale stuff. Mainly cranes!

Took me awhile to figure out how to pull it apart. Anyway, its been re strung, although does have a twist in it. Damn string, the old stuff wouldn't knot easy, this stuff does. Going to reeve the hook block tonight.

Well i've finished reeving the hook. Whats another bugger of a thing to do!. All i can say is that a lattice boom crane isn't what i would collect if you have the following
A temper that fires up very quick!!
Don't know the word patience, or how to use it!
Or sting isn't your fancy.

So, its the hydraulic cranes for me i think. I will say a 4100 is a pretty looking machine.
