This model is perhaps not quite steampunk enough, but I really liked the size and look of the thing.
It is a nice big piece that still has plenty of room for models to move around under and on it.
When I was at a port last year, I took some photos of the massive cranes to get some inspirations for colours. I have decided to go with a mix of red, grey and yellow spray paints for the base colours.
After building the cab and undercoating it, I thought I should have cut some clear plastic windows to fit when it was finished, I guess I will have to do it the hard way. Or not at all.
