1/35 Scale Archway Gantry Crane

This Crane was used by the Pz.Abt 508 when their Fries crane was destroyed by US air attack. This was a modified crane found in a local factory by Florence Italy and re-purposed by the maintenance crews

reference pages 123-125 in the excellent book Der Strabokran by Volker Ruf


Please not that this kit is all printed resin so it is a little different then cast resin to work with. Resin is a little harder and more fragile so care must be used in removing the supports.( Personally I have had the best results using the Tamiya Flush Cutters don’t just rip off the supports like many people say as you will inevitably break the part

 If any parts are warped they can be straightened with very hot water (Almost boiling ) I actually boil the water then let it cool a few seconds and this will make the resin pliable enough to straighten out.

Before ordering PLEASE Download the instructions and look them over.
