Hi-Ab crane kit for a Springer tug.
« on: August 11, 2018, 23:25:03 »
I have a Springer tug I need to finish but need a detailed Hi-Ab crane to fit on it.

What scale should it be  1/24th??  or 1/32 scale?

Anyone used one or made one up for a model boat?

I see Model Slipway advertised them like this -->      http://www.modelslipway.com/fittings/ATLAS%20crane.htm

Not a true Hi Ab, but a pretty simple project to build your own design by googling hydraulic cranes.  Mine was just made up from junk bin parts.

Try Italeri model kits - they have a 1/24 -no 776 truck conversion kit that might be suitable
