Mini fig size mobile crane. The out riggers are very rigid helping give more lift ability and stability. It has 2 micro motors and a lot of counter weight when the crane is fully up and lifting. The counter weight is made up of 2 9v battery boxes and 2 Lego 2x3x6 block weights. The side weights are full of BB pellets. The jib is optional depending on the needs
About this creation
Here is a mini fig scale Gottwald 1000t mobile crane. It comes in on a number of trucks and is assembled on the site. You can see the set up at www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=151094Only one was ever built. I just thought it would be a different build from what many people have built. More photos of the trucks can be seen at www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=151088. A dicast model and diorama of this Gottwald AMK 1000t crane can be seen at www.hansebube.de/ande1/buni1/amk/start.html
The main boom is up and the hook is ready to lift. In the back ground you can see the trucks needed to carry all the items needed for the crane. The main boom comes in on the one large truck and is later attached to the main crane assembly.
