|These instructions describe the construction of a functioning model of a revolving crane, installed on a barge. This model has a "derrick-type” boom lifting mechanism. A pulley system drives the boom luffing. The rest of the model has two hoist drums and a crane slewing mechanism. The barge is made up of large plates and angle girders. Its hull is covered with flexible plates.
The model requires two 3-6v Meccano motors to power the crane mechanisms
A 14-page instruction leaflet with text building instructions and colour photographs with a parts list. The model can be built from standard Meccano parts, although not all may be currently produced.
Please note this Model Plan has been designed by a Meccano modeller from his own collection of parts. These are instructions only.
