And I'm the third person to post in this blog!
I present my "Space Crane", which is a crane... in space! It was inspired by a simple crane in an old Legoland Idea Book.
Photos of the crane can be found in my Flickr album.
The winch mechanism is motorised with a micromotor, and is strong enough to lift some of the smaller craft (I haven't tried it with larger ones) . I think this is more of a repair and pick-up truck, actually.
The front tow-cab detatches and I plan to make other vehicles for the rear end, such as a personnel carrier and a mobile science station.
