My first guess is Max Gray/US Hobbies. It looks a lot like the one shown in my Spotters Guide, with a couple of very minor differences in the frame (three vertical ribs in the middle under the pivot, rather than four as shown in the Guide) and a slightly different attachment of the cables to the boom. Otherwise, almost identical...

Does it have circular holes in the side for cranks to turn the winding drums?

ON the MG and USH ones I have seen, the outrigger beams slide out and in from the boxes on the side of the frame.   They also have the crank locations as mentioned.

Another option, I have seen catalogued is Locomotive Workshop, the business that Jan Lorenzen ran for some years.    They advertized a kit for a 250 ton crane.   Their kits were craftsman style, and were brass mostly.    I have never seen one in person.

Had that thought as well - LWS.  Have seen the kit in the box, but not assembled.
