They look like GEM attachments to me.

Thanks Ken for posting for me. Also for your help along the way, especially the comic relief,. Yes Paul the attachments and the boom came from GEM. Got the DM 5110 from our host. Thanks to Greg Ferguson for prepping the boom for paint and sanding out the cast in lines and the extra hydraulic cylinders and for his advice. Shawn Lewis at BRI made the decals. Mike

Geez that's one serious hydraulic layout job here. One cannot figure this out without being a professional, having blueprints, or inboard pictures of the 1:1.

She's one of a kind! Congratulations. Applause

First of all,I have to make sure she’s not looking before I answer. Okay, all clear! Every time I would complete part of this project,I’d show her and say what do you think? She’d say that’s just great! Now get that vacuum cleaner and get to work! Thanks for your concern, George. Mike

Being an OLD operator you know how to handle big pieces like the vacuum.

Campmb, an amazing customization of a rather rare CCM model. You have achieved some brilliant hydraulic work and the access platform on the side of the boom is amazing as well. The detail really draws the viewer in. Very nice touch on the tilting cab as well. Happy Easter and many thanks for sharing your amazing piece.
