Hi Michael :mex:

TROUBLEMAKER !!

:P 


Troublemaker ?.  Not me Sir Si.

The OFFICIAL FR Troublemaker is a Texican hombre with the unlikely alias of Snr Woodward Greene , hangs out in the badlands of Pinos Altos NM.

I'm just a "lower classes" common criminal who throws a few stones before running away.

Regards,  :mex:

Not a TROUBLE MAKER but in the words of Alexandre Ledru-Rollin "" There go the people, I must follow them for I am their leader""
Lower the crane down on the gear!

Hi Uncle Sal. :mex:



By jove ! you're absolutely right ol' bean !! :P

I had done a tad of cranium scratching on that one. L:

Perhaps my folder stuffed with crane proto-photos, might have the answer ? ???



Meanwhile ...

... Gawd blimey Guv. ! look at the RIVETS on that !! :shocked:





It's even got the M.M.M. patent screw-in axle bearings ! :)



Next question is ... Chain or cable, for Wolfys yellow diecast dinosaur ?



:moose:

For your time frame, I would go with cable, the crane should have a similar rigging set up for the jib, as shown in the photo and any I have come across in the "COWANS SHELDON" book I have.
I will leave the rivet detail up to you.
CS had a couple of different set ups to support the jib on the match truck. From A frame timber to steel supports.

Hi Guys :wave:



Yes I have been wondering about the chain/cable question. :brill:

But have seen BOTH used on many of the various cranes in my proto-photos.

I don't know much about WHY either would be used though ? ???



My thought was, chain can break catastrophically in an instant, if weak, damaged or overloaded ...

... cable might bust a few strands first & could be seen as dangerous.

But I have heard of instant catastrophic cable snaps as well. :shocked:


( I must remember to use the word 'catastrophic' more often ... I like it ! ) ;)





The 'Dinky' dilemma, is whether to try and make it look less like what it is ? ... a toy !!

However it does have a certain 'charm' to it how it is ... Mmm . . . L:



I'm thinking multiple runs on pulley/s probably does look more realistic ...

... but also is probably gonna be a bitch to get to actually operate smoothly. :f:

Yes ! ... I may have to lift some 1:35 junk with it 'in the yard' ! :P



I would like most of my models to look 'realistic' ( whatever that is ) ...

... but in my older age ? I think I can also accept the odd tarted-up toy now and again ! ? :bg:

Looks like it came with cable (string) on the original box so perhaps stick with that. Almost certainly make operation smoother. Nice truck combination but I wonder if the main carrier will need a counterweight.
