1/35 1930s/40s dockside crane

Recommended Posts

After a pleasant chat in the LMS (or it was till it closed down) I got to making a dockside crane for use in 1/35 dioramas. The instigator of the scheme has sent me some pics of the results. 

The kit

Assembled but unpainted

And after he has painted and detailed

Wow that's really fab! Love it!
I've thought about buying the Dapol  OO/HO kit even though I don't have a train set! lol

I did do one printed off at OO scale for my Father in Law to add to his train set-up. Hopefully post-pandemic I’ll get to see it in-situ. 

I did get given the Dapol kit but haven’t built it yet. Looks really neat - I’ve held off doing it in case it makes me nitpick over mine

My LHS stocks a few Dapol kits.  
He made a couple for his great grandson's train set
They are pretty neat.

Some neat progress as a friend who built it up has included in a brilliant E-boat dockside diorama. His work always has loads of life and activity. As soon as I get the workshop going he wants another and I’m keen to see what he does with it

Also a really nice alert over on the book of face that a substantial 3D modelling group  has adopted the crane as their cover photo

The crane looks fantastic in the dio.

I’ll see if I can find where he has posted the full pictures as it is a work of art. He had a model shop in Newcastle and used dioramas to show the kits off to great effect. Does amazing work
