1890's Blocksetting Crane
These instructions describe the construction of a model based on an illustration of a Ransomes and Rapier "All-Round Titan" shipped out to Warrnambool, N.S.W., Australia in about 1890. The model comprises a Gantry, made up of a wheeled section, a tower section above with a square top. On top of the gantry is The Slew Ring which supports the Boom (or jib).
Two heavy duty motors are required for the traverse and slew motions, and two light duty motors for the drums.

These are basic instructions illustrated by a selection of eleven large coloured photographs of the model.       

The builder is expected to have experience of having built similar models of a similar complexity.
