One of the biggest dilemmas that LEGO builders face is choosing between impressive appearance and complex functionality of their creations. LEGO pieces, although offering an enormous number of combinations, still place huge limits on the functionality and mobility of models. That’s why hitting on a sweet build complete with a video of functions in action excites me like nothing else. One of the best Latvian builders, de-marco, whose works are always especially neat and aesthetically beautiful, has shared a small diorama of an old rusty rail-road crane by the loading area.
You might have already guessed what makes this crane special. A picture of the diorama from the reverse angle shows three undistinguished crank handles which provide full control of the crane.
The video gives a clear idea of how robust the mechanism is and how smoothly it works. No doubt, this crane will be the main attraction of the railroad layout at the builder’s next LEGO convention.
