Another fun little project. Take one Lionel shovel kit, add a photoetched boom from a Duncan Models Priestman dragline kit, add a Gescha Poclain 90 material handler grab, slap a giant counterweight on the back, shove a load of lead in the body to add a satisfying weight and hey presto, you have a... sort of result, ish.

...oh yes, and the obligatory Joal PC1100 tracks that go on everything and anything.

That's a neat lil custom, Jamie... I already discovered it in the background of the H485 pictures you shared. With a larger grapple it would be well-suited to load sugar cane! Especially with the wide tracks on it.
Thanks for sharing,
Max

I STILL haven't found a better way,of adding extra weight,to any model,other than lead weights.Looks good.Nice one.Those tracks will have no problems,moving the machine around,or on the rocky terrain.

Hahaha I noticed these right away. Lovely work as always Jamie. I'm sure if you ever shared your favourite recipe, there would probably be Joal PC1100 tracks in there too! Teeth
