That would be cool. I have been thinking about building a knuckle boom rig for a while.

Here's a quick update. We found a concrete slab under our shop. Whistle It's amazing what you can find when you clean up a little bit. Now we just need to start buying tools.



We also finally got our sign up out front. I think it looks pretty good. Let me know what you think.

Hey everyone. Been a while since I finished anything. Today I had a couple minutes to work on the log truck project. I think it turned out quite well. I'm running 26' of reach and 8' of compensator. There are still some small details that need worked out but it's close.







I have more pics but they're a little dark. I'll post them if anyone wants some detail shots. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

It looks real good. I like the black and white, gives it a nice clean look.

No. But I did learn who purchased all the moulds. These are brass built by a friend in Idaho.

Thems purty!
I built a Mac Kenzee kit last winter and mounted it on a First Gear Petercar. I picked up a bunch of brass at the Co-Op to start a mule train, but got called back to work before I could get started on it. Now I wish I had brought the stuff with me to Wyoming that way I'd have something to do while sitting in my 5th wheel when its 6 frickin' degrees outside!!

Are you an enviromentist, or do you work for a living?

I sure hope they get in gear and get some kits out soon. Six degrees is no fun. I have a yellow sword Petercar that I plan on putting the first kit I get on. Six degrees ain't no fun!

More filth and a couple dio photos today.

I got some containers for parts storage and had to make them look terrible.







Also got some work done on the yard.





Sold some of our logs from the back 40.



Finished up the 210 for a friend of mine who owns a logging outfit.





That's all for now. Hopefully I can keep going with this stuff.

Thanks mike! I've been doing a lot of reading about weathering and stuff. Dry brushing really does finish things off nicely. I also found that dullcote really works wonders.

Thanks bud. I sometimes wish I wasn't into it when I start spending money. Haha. I just put out $100 for some awesome trees for the dio. Hopefully they're as cool as they looked online.
