you will see a laser-cut house. The interlocking brick corners are are made very accurately.http://www.ndetail.de/modellbahn/de/eisenbahner-wohnhaus.html
In the right part of my module system there will be a port area
. An old grab crane can load sand from a ship into a hopper. From them light railway wagons can be loaded later.
My research in Lauenburg (here the original crane was demolished in the 1980ger (?) years)
was not very productive unfortunately. Only five photos I could find to imagine the rough dimensions.Muenzel_Kran_Lauenburg_-1956_b
So we give it a compromise now. The structure will be similar to the Hamburg crane,Possible Vorbild_Hafenkran
... Only the cab window later pre-built , I don´t like to build. This crane - now demolished - I took pictures four years ago.
For the first rehearsal I've milled out the walls which I have drawn in Cad.Münzel-Kran_001
However, I will extend the window at the front to further series of slices down probably so that the crane operator gets a better field of vision.
Pictures of old Hamburg harbor cranes shows windows of various sizes.Münzel-Kran_Lauenburg (Copyright W.Hinsch-LEA)
At the picture of the original I'm not sure if there were placed metal plates in front of the windows probably present.Münzel-Kran_006
The picture above shows the plate from the bottom up. In the center hole all the cables for the power supply will be carried out. I´m thinking about an endless sliding contact, so the cables will not disrupt exactly after 4536.7 rotations.
The rear wall is provided with lateral grooves. So the two little side panels could be bended easily after the circular bending.
To bend the plate properly, I used a second metal sheet as a victim under the original sheet...rolls bending machine_02
