    Mike,
    Make contact with a local plastic modellers club, and ask for volunteers to build it.
    Also mention that you are a disabled modeller, unable to do this aspect of modelling.
    Cheers M8

    Eh` well it's just as bad as the Kibri Spacelifter crane. Only thing is the castle has a foundation you can work your way up from. The crane however had to be assembled in sections then fitted together and inserted the main holding pins for the booms. After a week of constant everyday work on it was time to lift the booms into the air and tie them off to hold them up while the rigging was threaded pulley by pulley. To bad the cat had to have his fun with it chewing on the string and knocked it off and broke it. Next time I'll remember to buy the display case first. Kibri makes some really nice models but a lot of them are a pain to construct.
