SKB was the first company that came to
us and asked for models, to demonstrate the versatility of their truck
mounted cranes. The models had to be mounted on a
model truck, and everything on the crane had to work. The arms had
to telescope and swing, and the rams had to extend and retract, to
demonstrate the reach and swing.
The contract called for
12, all metal models, and the layout
below, shows all the component parts that were prefabricated in soldered
brass and steel.
