Anyone have pictures of that factory hanging off the back end of the crane?? That's super impressive!

It's not exceptionally tall, just big. Get a taller crane, build with small parts and mind the balance.

The question that came to my mind is: How do they built a crane like that, at that era? They used a bigger crane? If so, how do they built that bigger crane?

I haven’t looked anything up, but I would say they had cranes tall enough, they just had to take it up piece by piece.

Can anyone confirm that that is an American Ship? I know the Germans had a maneater on the high seas that had guns that big. I forget the name if the widowmaker. It was the one everyone thought was coming to attack that Arctic Supply Convoy that was scattered and dispersed for no reason. Almost the entire expedition was doomed. Can't think of the name of the German ship. It had guns that size.
