it finally came in, actually didnt take too long, i ordered it friday. this thing just makes the model i think. i think it stands at about 11ft tall, when fully extended. its well built, but i just dont trust the bolts, this jib is pretty heavy. my only complaint is, it was really a pain reeving the jib, i would suggest taking off the bridle from the pendants, and strapping it to the drum, and while the drum is off the crane, reeve it, then attatch the drum assembly to the crane. they give you plenty of stringApplause , personally, i will have it setup with a short heavy lift luffer instead of the full thing, just looks way cooler. ok enough talkingd'oh!

these first 3 were taken with my phone, camera had too many pics on it to use







erased the pics on my camera to get some better ones
for zach



the dolly wheels are removable

































ill get some better pics outside when the sun comes outConfused

Thanks
I got it from bagger-modelle, they give you a choice of by air or sea, of course I went with air, couldn't wait any moreTeeth I didn't think it would be here till today or tomorrow,a nice surprise when I got home!
I still have all the structures from the dio. Just took the tables out so I could have room. I've put too much time and money in the dio to get rid of it haha
