"Spidercrane! Spidercrane! Does whatever a spidercrane does. ... Watch out, it's the Spidercrane!"

Or something like that.  Anyway... a 1/24 1/20 (good catch, Frank!  :smiley:) model of the MC174CRM spider crane. Looks sci-fi, but is actually real.

Hoping to see this in one of tiking's dioramas soon.  ;)

Edit: fixed scale

That's interesting, while I was at YYC, I had to escort some contractors into the restricted area of the terminal with a bit of kit like that. Wasn't a crane boom though, more like a back hoe.

I think I just found the landing gear for my drop ship, and the turret and launch rail for my Centurion based ballistic missile launcher.

The spider crane is  1/20 scale not 1/24. Good thing, because it's a small vehicle - even at 1/20 scale, it's 65mm tall when fully folded. Perfect for 1/35 rescaling!

It's also surprisingly cheap - $19US
