Lee.
Well that's looking good, Paul's correct, that reworked coal box has really set the back off a
treat . The board size on the box doesn't look out of place against the deck, and painted like that they really look good.
This with the crane is going to be a cracker.:thumb2::smiling2:

Nice progress Lee. I'm tempted to try one of these in 1/87 scale.
Cheers, Rick H.

I probably work on the crane a little more then paint it and run the cable. I may get some different tracks for it been looking at some from GasOline. Lee

Looking good Lee. The crane looks like fun. I also have collected the parts needed for something similar. I just haven't decided on a 5ton truck or sdkfz 7 halftrack for the 3 ton Bilstein's platform. I'll be watching closely for faults in my 1/87 resin version. PaulE
