Hi Ray.

Isn't she just ! ...
... it was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT !

The kit is 'Ratio Plastic Models #531 Yard Crane'.
It's sold as OO/HO & represents a 'typical pre-grouping' British prototype.
Ratio Plastic Models are distributed by PECO; so should be available where PECO track is.

I came across it, looking at materials for Wolfgangs critter-workshop.
There's nothing about the design to 'scale it' realy.
I think it could work in OO/HO, 1/4", 1:35 and maybe even 1:24 & G-scale if you want a small Gn15 funky-flatcar or back of a pickup winch ?

I would recommend a 2.9mm hole in the base, if you want to avoid a 'droopy jib' !
I MEKed the upright to the base & left the top free to move around.
