Please note that those are both kits, the crane itself being cast from white metal. I have built the crane kit and while not particularly difficult, it is delicate assembly work and does take some patience and you need to be good with the CA (superglue).

The Colebrookdale Railroad group has been busy. The crane restoration is almost done:

My model is coming along also, but I typically leapfrog from one project to another and it was on the back burner for a while. It may be time to get back to this one again.

Happy Thanksgiving!
