jibtickler was very kind to send me the measurements of the block and I got it almost right. the block itself is a bit too high/long, so I am going to fix that.

For once I have the feeling that I made a lot of progress. I glued the 4 boom sections together and i am quite happy with the result.
As you can see there is still lots to do.

I always and consistently amazed by this project! Another great step forward. My only regret is that you are not from this side of the pond so I won't get to see it at Modelleshow Europe.

It is a polymer composite adhesive, industrial strength

Have you used it before ? What kind of strength does it have ? Just wondering how it will handle an extended boom.

Thanks. (I'm sure you will), keep us posted on how it handles the weight. Are you going to try a weight test ?

Wow, that's a huge update. How close to the real thing will your extension and retraction devices work? Will they use hydraulics?

I am going to use a spindle (electric motor plus screw thread) to extend the boom. I am not sure yet whether I am going to use 1 or 2 spindles.

Hi Kerst,

Just amazing work.
I like the way you have floded your boom sections. I might look at doing my next crane boom in a similiar way.
Will your boom be pinned in the way as the full size, 0%-50%-100%??
If so how will you operate it??

Again very nice engineering and a lovely crane.

Best Regards

Trev.

Heel erg indrukwekkend Kerst!

Which colours will it get?

I quite like Sarens blue, but I still have some time to decide.

Bedankt,

I managed to do a lot of work on the boom. All 4 sections are ready and the boom head is almost ready. Next is the telescope mechanism. I think it is going to be a variation on the single cylinder system.
