Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has built one of the Gal Line 250T cranes yet. There was an old thread around 2012 when the prototype was finished but I haven't seen any real reviews of it. I'm quite interested in getting one to build but I'd like to hear someone's opinion of it first if possible.

thanks,
Keith

Keith,

I have not built one, but a fellow club member purchased one and arranged with GAL Lines to have it assembled. It is quite a nicely detailed model. I cannot speak to difficulty of assembly.

Hello Keith

The 250 ton crane is a design I did about 4 years ago. The original commission required RC so the design does have the capability to be radio controlled. There are knock outs on the winch side frames to mount servos. A few that I know of have been remote controlled.

The build is not very difficult. It breaks down into a series of sub assemblies. None of which require more than sanding to fit together.

Keith if you email me directly I will send a PDF of a build review that was published in the UK.

Thanks
