the MBS Crane Kits, as in all Fellini Fittings, is manufactured, to the highest quality, in HardyCast & White Metal......... And, the many parts of each kit is complimented by Pictorial Instructions, guiding the builder through to final assembly of this superb model.
One unique feature of the MBS Crane is the UNDER-DECK BRACE ... a unit, that as the name suggests, fits underneath the deck, but protrudes through the deck and into the base of the
MBS Crane... thus eliminating any chance of the crane being knocked / broken off the deck.
So what scale is the MBS Crane ?... Though we at MMM, in the design stage, because of the seat / platform, worked 'on' 1:32nd scale......As most modellers will agree, when it comes to deck fittings, it is not so much as scale... but size that matters........ with this in mind, like all of our Fellini Fittings, we print the actual size(s) of the model.
Height ......... Base... 2 1/2" / 65mm ..... Crane .3" / 75mm .
Total ( folded ) ht. 5 1/2" / 140mm
Width ... Folded ... 3" / 75 mm .. Boom extended .. min. 7" / 180 mm
The MBS Crane can be assembled in either the closed-up mode, or extended mode, or any position in between.
It is best to use SuperGlue to complete these model kits....( see Adhesives )
