Calling this one done.  Cab and chassis from AITM, trailer from AMT.  Crane from Italeri, front drive axle from KFS, logs from the back yard.  Lots of extra parts.  KFS front drive axle had to be narrowed (1/24 scale).  Grapple on crane from scratch.  Weathering is a variety of acrylic washes, chalks and airbrush.  Rust is the salt method, tried the baking soda method for the mud but didn't like it so I created my own mix using acrylic craft paint ($0.99 per bottle!), water, acrylic gloss and fine sawdust.  Probably the most involved build to date, first one with weathering.  Overall, I like the result.....

  Warren,

             Wow ! Like you really nailed this one . I like the whole overall look and you weathering looks good as well.

Though I have to say as an observation. That crane might not be up to the task! It still looks good .

 

 

   Be Well
