Menke Electromagnet Crane - By Jerry Allen

Here's another look at Jerry Allen's seven year old Kibri Mencke dragline crane kit that he completely disassembled, rebuilt, and re-rigged as a scrap yard crane using the crane electromagnet from a Walthers American locomotive crane. The original lifting block was replaced with the one from a NZG Grove RT 700 crane. It was repainted and decaled with Microscale decals. Also shown in Photo Gallery 264.
