I built this crane years ago and it took me a long time to finish and in a sense it was never finished. I painted it red, but I was never happy with the result and over the years I made lots of small repairs and alterations.
During the last day of the Cabin Fever Expo something broke and in order to repair it I needed to take the whole thing apart and then I decided to just do it and repaint it.
It took me about 6 weeks of cleaning, sanding and re-finishing and here is the result. i also added dome more details.

Outstanding Kerst! What scale is it built in? How long was the build process for this piece?

Thanks! The scale is 1/20 and it took me (too) many years to build including many long interruptions. And the crane is fully functional.

Kerst, I never get tired of looking at your models. Nice restoration!! Have you had your Ringer out of mothballs lately?

After 4 years I decided to upgrade the RC controls. I learned a lot while building the Euclid and i am confident to make all carrier functions RC controllable. The Krupp has a powershift gearbox with 3 speeds and an auxiliary box with 2 speeds. The transfer box has a differential which can be blocked. That takes 5 channels. It will be fun to be able to control all these functions remotely.

So far:
