My latest effort for Alaska is building the aircraft cranes. I had build one of the cranes years ago.. but not the pedestal part of it.. so I finished the second one, with all the pieces for both.

I made the kingpost part, and sent it out to Lee, then after he molded it and sent it back, I chopped it up into levels, and added the individual decks:

then here is the finished crane on the superstructure piece:

Brad,

Very nice work. The catwalks will be a lot more work.

I have experimented with photo etch for the catwalks on my USS Oklahoma City CLG-5. So far my home made parts aren't up to snuff, but I know a photo etch shop should have little trouble with them.
