Set includes 4 cranes. Two sets will be needed to complete one Olympic class model ship (e.g. Titanic). One set is needed for Lusitania.
These accurately sized and highly detailed model cranes represent the large, conspicuous, Stothert & Pitt Ltd. cargo and baggage handling cranes of many merchant steamers such as Olympic class White Star liners RMS Titanic, RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic, and Cunard liners RMS Lusitania and RMS Mauretania. They are intended to replace the inaccurately shaped and poorly detailed plastic kit parts.
For those building Titanic, or any other Olympic class ship, please be advised that this set contains only 4 cranes so two sets will be needed for one Titanic model ship.
Titanic and Olympic were equipped with eight electric cargo and baggage handling cranes made by Stothert and Pitt, Ltd. of Bath. Six of the cranes were rated for 50 cwt (2.5 tons). Two each of these were located on the forward well deck, the aft well deck and the poop deck. Two additional cranes were rated for 30 cwt (1.5 tons) and were mounted on smaller diameter cylindrical handling rooms. These two were located on the A Deck promenade, aft.

These scale model cranes are not 3D-printed copies of any resin or plastic model kit’s parts. They are not the same size and shape of the plastic kit’s parts. Some adjustment of the plastic kit’s parts or any aftermarket products such as phot-etch may be necessary for best fit.
