the pockets have ran dry for the next step on my firetruck. so in the mean time

ive been wanting to build a small crane / hiab for the back of a big rig truck. this


will be in a 1/14 scale , completely scratch and close to detail as picture allow me. so if any body out there has clear close up pictures it would be to email with them , especially over sea trucks .

i started at the bottom with the base frame and cross members

thanks everybody for watching

 

people are asking what im putting the crane on , i really wasnt going to make the truck, but what hell, might as well.   the truck wont be scratch but will be alot of modding

so while the bottom half is drying from painting it, i will get started on the truck

im going to do an 8x4, twin steer k/w, 26 inches , agressive tires in the back, chrome 2 holes bud rims, not sure on motor and transmission yet.

That is very cool, and a great idea using the shock for the ram,
