Mobile crane in Hornby Magazine
February's Hornby Magazine arrives and inside you'll find my description of building a Langley Models whitemetal kit for a Ransomes Rapier 6 ton mobile yard crane.
It's a complicated kit with an awful lot of parts but the end result looks fantastic. These things from the days before hydraulic power are all detail. Certainly not something I'd want to have a go at scratchbuilding !
