      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Well, after finally finishing up my H61 Cherrypicker I swore to myself I wasn't going to scratchbuild another truck again.....that lasted a week until I started on this one. I had some sales brochures and spec sheets from the Mack museum so that plus boredom and some evergreen sheets floating around was all i needed to get started. I still have a lot of work left to do but progress is happening pretty quickly with this one. Apart from the wheels, tyres,engine/gearbox and diesel tanks everything has been made by myself.The bullnose hood will open once I make up some little hinges,as will the doors. Colour will be the same emerald green as my H61. Here are a few pics of where I'm at with it now.post-5297-0-97899200-1358584948_thumb.jppost-5297-0-44148900-1358584982_thumb.jppost-5297-0-08269600-1358585006_thumb.jppost-5297-0-13183300-1358585035_thumb.jppost-5297-0-88253300-1358585055_thumb.jp
