The Conversion Etch


 Converts the Triang/ Hornby R127 handcrane into one of the 6.5t versions and allows modellers to rig the crane prototypically.

This etch represents the most common of the 6.5T variants, introduced in 1942 a further batch was produced in 1944/45.

 If successful I will also release a version to detail the Triang crane as a 10t crane.
