floating crane "Greif"
« on: January 20, 2019, 11:35:55 AM »

I start a building blog. The "Greif" was build in 1958 in Hamburg and is a powered pontoon with a Kampnagel  crane.


1984 -2009 he was stationed in Brunsbuettel there I work with him. Today he is a hotel and museum in Hamburg http://myfloatel.de/hideaways/hafenkran-hamburg


scale is 1:20

the rivets are 1x3 mm. This is not much bigger than dust. I start with the boom because is the difficult at this.

Looks like a very interesting project. Are you working to a particular scale Ralph?

It is good to see some pewter sploshing and lots of model engineering Ralph! Do you wear head magnifiers to help your straining eyes's?


The way you made those propeller blades is clever   :-))

Ralph.......great steel [brass] work there in the floating crane Hotel  :-))

http://myfloatel.de/hideaways/hafenkran-hamburg


Certainly a unique way to save heritage .....although at 350E to 450E [weekend rate] per night and only one double room to book

How will the owners will make sufficient money to survive?

The WEB site tells that you can take breakfast on a small balcony, but it is always is raining in Hamburg  O0

Please continue with your posts

regards Derek

PS...whats the food like @ Harrys Hamburger Hafenbasar? {Joint {-) .... just up the road a bit & lets hope it has a roof}

I never like to contradict people on Mayhem (believe that and I'll tell you another! :} :} :}) but I spent 4 days in Hamburg last September and it didn't rain once.  Out of the breeze the weather was fine although like another great river city, Liverpool, there always seems to be a cold breeze coming off the river.  Visits to the Hafencity district should include the Minature Wunderland (big, big model railway. Allow a day and a half!) and the Maritime Museum (allow a day!) which has a really good and inexpensive café serving a lot of traditional Hamburg fare.

It shows what a collection of rivets will accomplish. Excellent work so far! Here's to the next 500 of the little blighters  :-)
