|These instructions describe the construction of this model based on a floating crane which works in the dock system at Barrow-in-Furness. (This information was correct at the end of March 1999) This version was built without regard to any constraints on parts but a No.10 set at least is required. The crane makes quite a large model being approximately 5ft long,1½ ft wide and 6 ft high (1.5x.45x1.8 metres).
16 pages cover the hull; winding mechanism; lower deck; superstructure; control room; upper superstructure; jib and hooks, fully illustrated with colour photographs. The builder will require experience of building from basic instructions and interpreting photographs.
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.
