I think "Model Slipway" sell a crane as an individual item. Certainly "Cap Maquettes" do several different cranes, I know because I was in their shop/factory in Nantes, France yesterday!

Cheers Daz  :-)) The gravel is fish tank gravel sitting on a 1 inch deep trough, tried to make it so the hold looks full?  Just need to make some bollards for the barge now, i was also toying with the idea of fitting a ballast tank with pump to weight it down to the water line for some serious pulling.

Hi Jay,
That Swan has a large family, I counted 7 Cygnets. No sign of Kate Humble though. <:(

Yeah, Jay had to beat a hasty retreat at one stage, when the adult swans threaten annihilation.
