Close up of the luffing jib. I winch/pulley system is used for lifting and lowering the lattice.

Next challenge is to build all the required winches into the main crane structure (and buy more string!)

Close up of the Y guying. I liked that I could incorporate pneumatic functions. The arms are fragile but function when strings are in tension.

Pneumatic switches are located at the end of the boom to minimize the amount of tubing required. A single tube runs down the top of the boom and the idea is to route it through the turntable and have a hidden compressor and air-tank at the back of the crane chassis (there is room there to work with)

Guying and lattice jib assembled and ready for lifting. Unfortunately the actuator will never lift the combined weight, human help is required!

With less boom height the jib lattice can be lowered to give a wide lifting zone.

I have not tested how long I can build the lattice out before collapsing under its own weight.

I need more string  before I'm finished!

Taking photos becomes interesting, it's difficult to capture the full scale of the MOC.

Here's a view from the jib looking down. Alignment of the jib lattice and main boom is dependent on tension of the Y guying.

Giving the construction of the two arms I would not expect to lift anything other than a very light load.

After adding the Y guying and luffing lattice jib I needed to move the crane into the hallway!

With correct tension of strings the boom and jib were stable at a total height ~3m

Boom is robust at about ~180cm height. With counterweight extended the boom has good operational lifting range 60-80deg.

Maximum extension stands around 205cm. 3rd section of boom uses string for both extension and retraction.
