Thank you all for your interest and support! I really appreciate that!
I will try and take some videos, but i am already preparing for the next project, which will be something completely different.

I finished the remaining pendants and rigged her up with 72 meters of boom. This turns into about 10' for the scale model. It needed 7 lbs of extra weights on the back to raise the boom. Otherwise it worked fine. I am pleased with the result. When finished the counterweights will be around 5 lbs, so I will need to make the extra outriggers on the back for raising the boom.






This is how the extra outriggers will look like:
