|These detailed instructions with photographs and IsoMec drawings describe the construction of this crane. Only slightly larger than the author's ever-popular 1990 Tower Crane, ModelPlan 61, this model, based on a Liebherr original, enjoys radical improvements in detail and handling, with all motors now boom-mounted and a hoist rope which follows the complex prototypical path. The mast bearing uses commonly-available large axle system parts, with an alternative pintle-bearing using only standard Meccano. A few non-system extras add finishing touches to the model's extraordinary realism, which has been achieved with an elegant economy of parts.
Please note these Model Plans are designed by individual Meccano modellers and may use parts not currently available. The level of instruction detail is dependent on the original modeller and varies from plan to plan. These are instructions only.
