I don't know what you were thinking - but it looks real good!

LOl I'm not sure if this was a older kit.best thing was that the rear wheels were not on the body,so it gave me a nice flat surface to work with.GHQ any input to wheater this was a older kit or a newer one ??

That's one of their older kits. I had one until I decided to change my preferred era (transition - mid/late 1950's).

That era change may be why I kept bugging them for stuff like older ALF Fire Apparatus (engines) and the like...

PostPosted: Mon May 02, 2011 1:05 am    Post subject: Semi-kitbash of the Bucyrus Erie 30-B Crane Reply with quote

SO,while floating around on You-Tube looking at M.O.W. videos I see a mobile crane,and I'm like "Yeah" The build ( kitbash) is around the GHQ Bucyrus Erie 30-B Crane,
first I hard to find two of the older Con-Cor heavy lift cranes which one base will be used as the new base for the Bucyrus Erie 30-B Crane,as you can see the crane base "just" sits on the ring of the deck,and give the crane base no height at all



after a bit of thinking I used a dime to cut out the new base,this is both decks side by side



here is the crane base sitting on the new higher platform,more height and level

I then cut out some GMM deck plating to cover the ones molded in place,nothing is glued as of yet





Here is the crane,body and boom ( not glued) once the base is glued it will sit level,the hard part is most M.O.W cranes are black or gray so what color should it be painted already have cranes in BN MRL and CP,what next ?




If your wondering what I did with the other crane,well that got primed and painted and now is C P Rail and the other crane ?? I never throw anything out,never !

Well after doing nothing but yard and field work on Saturday I said Sunday is mine !! well I need to get things done but I painted first,

First two shots are of the base,I was wondering about jsut doing the catwalks black but said no go for it,and yes there are "hoildays" but the cab body will be covering them.





next three shots are of the boom,plz note I install the boom upside down becasue I like the detail on the bottom side and also that give me the three folded sides up
