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.
In our DM-Toys blog by Joep Stienen
there is a manual for installing a servo motor.
The kits are made using the latest laser technology in a prototypical manner. Production takes place entirely in Germany at Modellbahn Union / DM-Toys in Issum. All components are cut from cardboard or wood with high precision in different thicknesses and enable quick assembly. The surfaces of the buildings are laser engraved. With this method, the surface is absolutely realistic in terms of both color and scale. The wall elements are partially serrated lasered and can simply be inserted into each other and glued. Attractive packaging and detailed building instructions complete the new product series.
