Our jubilee model for the 14th anniversary of DM-Toys is a scale 1:16 scale N model based on the harbor cranes in Salzgitter-Beddingen. The model of the mighty gantry crane was originally used as a coal crane and still stands today in the inland port of Beddingen. Engineered in steel, the crane is a very impressive structure and can be seen from afar.
With a total length of the model of 227 mm and a bridging of 150 mm, this giant is able to load up to 5 parallel tracks in the car. The crane and substructure are movable and can be moved to any position on your system. The model is kept in a deceptively similar green color as the prototype. Detailed stairs, gratings and ladders, as well as the detailed steel construction make the model a real eye-catcher on your system or diorama.
The kit contains over 120 laser-cut and 13 3D printed parts (including the gripper) and is prepared for the installation of a servo motor
(only for experienced hobbyists). Commercial track 55 & Code 80 Track can be used as the track for the crane. The right track for the tower is included in the kit.

there is a manual for installing a servo motor.
