Yes, it's huge and heavy !

It will be difficult to install these elements on the crane. Fortunately, I have been able to get additional copies of issues 19 and 20 which contain the U-shaped ring and the toothed plate. So, I am testing an alternative method consisting of building the boom directly on top of the tower. I will post some pictures of this build.

I have now mounted the two previously built boom elements on top of the crane :

This is not the "official" method of building since it requires additional parts which have not yet been distributed with the partwork (especially second copies of the toothed plate and U-shaped ring supplied with issues 19 and 20)
