There is an amazing model of the hydraulic crane in the Discovery Museum in Newcastle upon Tyne.
One of Armstrong’s biggest hydraulic cranes is being restored and an attempt may be made to bring it back to Tyneside from its current home in Venice. The crane was built in 1885 and continued in use until 1950 after having been damaged by bombing in the second world war.

You can find two hydraulic crane project kits on the ‘boxed kits for sale’ page.
