Great American Locomotion (GAL) announced a 120 ton crane at the end of 2013, which I still wanted to share with you today.
Their latest kit is a 120 ton steam crane in 1/29th scale, and costs $484.00 (~ €350.00). Only couplers, detail parts, paint and road markings need to be supplied yourself.
An optional longer crane boom (with bucket) is available for $80.00 (~ €58.00), pictured below.
More information and pictures are available at GAL’s website: http://www.thegalline.com/Page21.html
