Posting for a friend. He is in the process of making several of these, and wanted to share some progress photos. They are resin castings. Booms will be brass.


The Manitowoc 21000 is pretty neat, too.


Counterweights and chassis weights are metal.

Enjoy!

You can buy them as a kit and the pricing is not out of sight
