We’ve reviewed some great kits from Terrkami Games in the past, including their Sci-Fi Containers and MagLev Train MKII, but now its time for the big one, the Sci-Fi Container Crane! This is a huge centerpiece for any industrial table, so would be perfect for games like Warhammer 40k, Necromunda, and Infinity.
This is a laser-cut MDF kit priced at 54,00 € (around $59), and comes a stack of 3mm thick MDF sheets as shown below.
Here’s the rather serious pile of parts you end up with once you’ve separated them from the MDF sheets. This is a huge terrain piece with some large parts, we’ve included a D6 to give you an idea of scale.
As with other Terrkami kits we’ve built, the Container Crane comes with a clear set of instructions labeling each part and where it goes. We normally assemble these MDF kits with PVA (white) glue.
*Drum roll* ..and here it is, the absolutely massive Container Crane! It was a straightforward kit to assemble thanks to the clear instructions and accurately cut parts.
There’s some great details in this kit, layered structural pieces, delicate railings, and lots of laser-etched panel lines end edging.
Ladders run up the sides of the Container Crane, allowing minis to access the top platform, and there are even (non-moving) wheels at the base.
This claw for picking up containers can be moved freely along a track from one side of the crane to the other.
This kit combines well with Terrakami’s sci-fi containers which we have reviewed in the past, the container being held aloft here is being held by friction alone. In the second photo we’ve included some 28mm Warhammer 40k Space Marines for scale.
Where this kit really comes together is when used with both the sci-fi containers and Terrakami’s MagLev Train MKII – how cool is this?! This could be a real centerpiece for a gaming board, and also be something that can be rearranged and set up differently depending on your game.
Here we’ve included some 28mm Warhammer 40k Space Marines for scale, how can you not want to fight across this?!
We’re going to have great fun fighting some battles over this terrain, Necromunda springs to mind due to the industrial feel and we can already see Gangers falling from the great height of the top platform. Its a very large terrain piece so we’re going to have to work out how to store it between battles, but when we do play it’ll no doubt be the centerpiece of the table. In our experience these MDF kits from Terrakami Games are very well designed and very accurately cut, even more so than a lot of MDF kits we’ve assembled.
