That is just amazing - what a feat of model building, or perhaps I should say engineering Applause

Now I can't wait to see it painted.

That is absolutely amazing! I appreciate you sharing the product of your talent. The ways that you solved the problems that were presented in order to make a working model speaks considerably about your engineering skills. Needless to say, I am among the many who are impressed by your modelling skills.

Thanks for the nice words!
It is quite a milestone and I found myself repeatedly just staring at it, just taking in the result after about 6 years of work.
I took it down again and I can start finishing the missing details. Plenty to do!

Yes, I am planning to come with the LTM1800, but they moved the date to April (12-14)

Lately I have been busy with finishing lots of details, including installing the lights and finishing the carrier cab. It is quite a challenge to find space for all the wires as you can see.

I wish I could come to this great show, but it is a logistical nightmare. I did it once, years ago, with my Krupp, but there was considerable damage as a result. I sent parts by mail and took the rest on the airplane, but had to check it in unfortunately. Security was no problem, which surprised me.

Testing the LTM1800 with derrick.
I rigged the crane this weekend and did the first testing. The object was a 22 Lbs chuck. Luckily nothing broke, but I was surprised at the amount of movement in the carrier and the outriggers. The video gives an impression. (Watch the dial at the foot outrigger)

Here some pictures of the setup. Although I took care of a lot of details, there is still work left.

Fantastic work Kerst,

I've been watching your build post since you started it.
Just great craftmanship.

It sooo rewarding when a project like this (excuse the pun) gets off the ground!!!!

The first time I go my LTR operational its a very happy momment, as long as nothing breaks!!!

What colour will you paint it?

Regards

Ditto. What livery are you going to go with? I think Ainscough looks pretty good...

I did some final details, like the chains for lifting the boom to self-install it. I found some decent chain, classified as jewelry, but it works fine for this purpose. The cylinder doesn't work and that is no real problem. It limits the horizontal movement a bit.


Next is the big job of painting the crane.
I decided to do the Sarens livery and even there I have choices since they had various versions of the LTM1800 and the LG1550.

You have just built one of the finest customs here on the forums, and I like your choice to do the Sarens version! Blue & white would be niceWink Look forward to your continued thread on the painting process Kerst!
