Damn, and I didn't dare to do it (not much time in between two meetings outside the office). Maybe we could have had a drink together

2 slight problems -

(1) it's a bit wonky!



(2) no idea where to get it hosted!

Gargh! I have to insist that I posted my guess before I saw your post, Gerald

As I said... tried the same, wanted to make a "Pin-up" poster 1 meter tall the other day and it just didn't work

Thank you very much Gerald.d and Desert Diver for the amazing pics!

When the 4th crane was assembled? It seems like it's the recovery crane, but it's in a "strange" position for a recovery crane.
(sorry if you already answered this question, I tried to search this topic with the serach tool, but it doesn't work )
