One of the workhorses of the oceans and waterways, from giants lifting 7500 tons to river-going small boat lifters, the Crane Barge or ship is in use around the world.
As cranes often have a grab bucket we have included a simplified one, along with a main winch and jib winch. The whole mechanism rotates on the barge hull 360 degrees. The model has a door at the rear of the hull for easy play access. The two simple winches will hold the jib with the hook or grab bucket. Couple with the Tugboat for extra play value.
This kit is a little more complex and so perhaps more suited to children a little older, but still has the same ease of assembly with visual instructions, pva glue and cord supplied. All our model kits may be painted, acrylic paints are recommended.
This Crane Barge has 42 press-out parts laser-cut from superior 3mm birch plywood, a highly sustainable, safe material. Plywood has been around for thousands of years and has many uses in industry and in the home.
