Two Cranes: Tower & Dockside (Set10+ model)

(Code: MP158)
Two Cranes: Tower & Dockside (Set10+ model)
These instructions describe the construction of two similar models The Tower Crane  stands just over 2m tall. The dockside crane represents a type which years ago was a common sight in every port. Although not based on an actual crane, it is about 900mm tall and its tower has Flanged Wheels so that it may traverse on its own rail track. The tower legs are spread so that a railway track may pass under the crane. The crane jib has a short hammerhead to extend the reach. The hoist rope is sheaved three times between the masthead and the jib so as to achieve the level luffing feature. The driver's cabin is well forward to allow good view of the operation. Both cranes employ three small motors in the machine room and are very suitable  for  operation   manually  or automatically.
Instructions are included for operation by the Meccanisms "Motorvator". 

This 20 pages booklet is reminiscent of traditional Meccano model instructions with text and fully illustrated with both black & white and colour illustrations. There are parts lists for both cranes

The models have been built using the contents of a Standard Meccano Set 10, but the Tower Crane model requires the addition of extra parts especially part no. 2 where an extra 50 are needed, and an additional 8 each of No.3, No.9b, No.12c and No.16b together with 18 of No.48a.
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.
