Reader's letter

15 April 2008

Dear Sir

I'm a regular reader of your magazine and have been for years. I work for a great company that is multi-disciplined, in that it is involved in construction, civils, mining, and services.

My role as planning manager means that apart from creating programs and schedules, I also get very involved in various tender submissions, and these often involve the creation of visual staging diagrams or drawings which we use to show our client how we intend to construct the project from a logistics point of view.

This usually involves the incorporation of crane or access equipment images, most of which I've drawn myself or just collected over the years. Some are very accurate renditions (even scalable in Autocad) and others are not.

What I'd like to ask the readers is, do they know of any web sites where I can download additional quality images of this sort of thing, whether it be mobile, tower or other cranes, boom or scissor lifts, etc. or maybe just swap images with other similar-minded users?

I'd like to hear from anyone who could assist.
