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

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.
