    This is my design of a container crane. It is available in the downloads section. I am figuring it is close to 1/400 if printed on LTR not A4. The container in the picture came from the Sealand Express model found here, http://ecardmodels.com/product_info.php?cPath=60_74_89&products_id=982

    In the plans you have the option for the raised boom or the lowed boom.

    If any one has any questions feel free to PM me and I will gladly answer them and help.

    That is awesome!! With all the ship models being built these days, that would make a great addition to a diorama for the paper crow, and the model railroaders. Nice job! Excellent subject matter!! Very cool Inky, very cool! :)

    I just added another folder in the downloads section of more container cranes just like the Maher but in different color schemes of red, blue, yellow, white, orange, red/white, and blue/white.

    Thank you Albert. This model was fun to design.

    Barcelona has the big yellow cranes if I am not mistaken. In my other folder in downloads of container cranes I have a yellow one if you wanna check them out too.

    Inky, I just found out I had the ability to approve models in the "que". I am so sorry, No one told me I could do this, but I have approved all works in in the "QUE" so yours should be there. If there is a problem let me knew. Sorry!
