    Hello all this is my first build thread here. Been watching for some time.
    We'll I recently got the construction bug and wanted to build something different. At a job site I was at I found this gem. Was beat up but it gave me inspiration to keep it alive. Unfortunately for the actual crane it was scraped by the new owners of the property. So any info beyond pics are gone about it. So I will do my best to keep it alive.
    [​IMG][​IMG] the frame is ready.
    [​IMG]and a little syrene work today. still in mock stage but I will slowly update.

    Had time to do a bit of work today. Still very crude but it's starting to take form.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG] cab is mostly done. Using this as a template to go ahead and use a thin gauge steel sheet. It will be much stronger and will be able to rust with use.. more to come soon.
