Scratchbuilding a ore crane n-scale

Has anyone tried this? If so did you use a kit to start or entirely scratchbuild it? Is there any plans to go by? Thanks in advance Brian

Friend Rick Spano (Sceniced and Undecided) has bashed bridge kits into ore cranes--he's built 3 or 4 and is working another one for a new steel mill scene.



Note: He also animates them to be functional.

I may offer one, as I build both ships and bridges.

I looked at building one. It seems to me they are all site-specific. I think that makes a generic kit pretty hard to do.
