Gantry Cranes

  1. I just wanted some help with making a model cargo bay gantry crane for a project.

    I need some help designing the jib part of the crane. It only has to be a simple version and easy-ish to make.

    I have the idea of bending sheet metal to form an L shape. Doing this twice would be my jib.
    Then I would have the cart on it with motors to allow it to move and allow it to raise and lower a cargo container.

    Sortof like this but simpler again:


    Anyway I just wanted to see if any of you guys have ideas of designing a cargo gantry cranes would be awfully helpful!
    Any ideas at all will help me.
