Only found this thread as you have posted the 35 tonner, so about the buffers and previous crane, terrific job!
I have done similar with the buffers, but also painted the hydraulic shaft silver and painted grease on buffers like you have done on the small crane :D

After reading the book and seeing the plans within the Hornby model is clearly a 75 ton, also noticed the number on the side of the jib runner wagon 'DB998617' and 'DB966111 crane number' are for....



So now just have to build one.

I have now modified the parts concerning the crane carriage, jib runner and relieving bogies. I was surprised how soft some of the plastic parts were. Time to start reassembly.
