Description 75% finished Mobile Crane that I'm building. Includes 2 standard green motors (34 rpm), which drive 4 of the 6 functions (moving winch, rotating superstructure, raising/lowering arm, extending the arm). The other functions are 2-axle steering (a knob on the back of the crane) and working stabilizers, that move in sync. Model can be 'driven' around by hand.
There are 18 gears in the superstructure alone, plus 8 in the body of the crane.

Looks great! It feels rare to see non-roller coasters on this site, and in general nowadays.

Well I know I'm not completely in the right place, that's why I didn't make a construction thread for instance. I hope the mods are okay with it (Looks to mods...)

Well, you're not completely in the wrong place either! I don't really know another good place for posting knex that is very active, and while we like seeing coasters, we're not opposed to other things. It's not like mods are going to ban you for not making roller coasters or something.
