This one is an HO/OO version in resin from the modelmakers Modellbau Luft
Direct link to the crane HERE .
A video of a treadwheel crane being used for real at the Guédelon Castle construction site. This one is an advanced version that turns so the load can be moved from side to side and not just up and down. Fredericus -Rex has recently brought out a medieval crane similar to the one at Guédelon which can be seen HERE
A couple more bits of my construction....a second (or is it third?) prison wagon....
Great work as always Paul , fantastic pics .ReplyDelete
alrighty paul nice workDelete
Fantastic Paul, seems there are a lot of bad guys in your village with so many prison wagons, next step is building a prison with your fantastic looking crane?ReplyDelete
The crane went back to it´s owner after modification,along with one Carpentum and a prison wagon. At some Point I will create a whole new town, including prison, Pub etc. Hopefully I will be able to make a "mass production" method for a lot of new houses ..I will Need at least 20 for a game i am inventing...I will see.
I dig how you paint wood. And that dio is awesome.ReplyDelete
That's a so rich post Paul!! Great news, pictures and minis...thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
The more prison wagons the better for the bad people, quality work my friend and that project is still unreal!ReplyDelete
Very impressive. Great job.ReplyDelete
Wow very cool looking models Paul, and the Dio is very impressive!ReplyDelete
An ingenius device and no mistake; lovely additional wagons and as for that diorama - wow!ReplyDelete
Your builds are always great Paul. More prison wagons, now you need to build more gallows to hang the criminals riding in them.ReplyDelete
That dio is beyond belief. It would be a treat to see that in person.
Nicely done crane. The paddy wagons are a great vehicle for cleaning up the country side.ReplyDelete
absolutely increadible!!!!! great stuff Paul, you are the master of the scratch build. as for the castle perhaps all they need is a lot more workers, ones that don't need to be paid... hmmm there are a few students at school I could send on a work based detention to france... though knowing those students they'll be a hinderence not a help to the construction effort.ReplyDelete
Nice work Paul, and that Croeburn dio is amazing.ReplyDelete
Is the crane to escape from prison? :-DReplyDelete
Great built again Paul!
Paul, how big is the crane, please? Would it work with 28mm?ReplyDelete
Croeburn looks amazing!
It´s small, definately meant for HO/OO -1/72nd scale bods. Mind you, seeing as there were no actual Standard sizes for such things..no european regs etc, ?Delete
I´d like to be able to send a pic with a 28mm bod next to it but the crane is with it´s owner..all I have is the photos. There´s a pic on the link to Modelbau Luft showing HO scale bods next to it ..using that it´s possible to judge wether it´s ok for 28 mm as a small one man driven crane.
Thanks Paul! I'll have a look at Modelbau, as you suggest, that will help me judge. Again, great modelling.ReplyDelete
Hi Paul, I eventually made the model I wanted inspired by your original. It's here if you want to have a gander mate; https://stgbooks.blogspot.com/2019/12/medieval-crane.htmlReplyDelete
I think I will be looking through your blog a little more closely in the near future :) Suggestions always welcome.
Thanks. Added your blog to my blog roll :-)Delete
