After reading this thread I dusted off the old Ratio crane kit box and made a start. I think I can honestly say that anyone who has done this kit has lost a few years off their life, instructions really need rewriting and the fence work drains your life force from you lol.

But if you spend the time on it that it deserves then I think your onto a winner, he’s the top section which I’m calling done until I sort some lights for it like the real thing. Have also cut out the plastic walkways and replaced with mesh.

Yer my top part was nightmare!!!

Think I ended up making my own handrails not the kit ones...

One of my favourite parts of scenic making  is wild flower clumps

made frome grated frozen kids crayons and static grass clumps..

Very easy to make at home,very effective...
