Those are some great models. Now you need to build a scale building.



I notice that the painting crew must be Union. One guy painting one guy standing watching.


What is that behind the construction trailer looks like it is moving rocks?

I think that is a counter weight on a old style wooden crane. I would love to see more photos of that wooden crane. Thanks for sharing, very nice collection.. :thumbs:

mybigwarwagon, and Texas Deere and Horse, What you see is a scratch built model that I call my Wacky Asian Crane. It is a 3/8"=1ft. scale. It is based on a crane that is used somewhere in Vietnam.
