Wow, this is certainly a major project no matter how you look at it. I admire your patience Dutchy! I can’t remember, but I think you said you were using CA glue. Is that correct?

Thanks Ron. Yes mostly I use CA glue. Sometimes thin and sometimes thick CA glue. When it’s a very small surface I use when necessary also a accelerator. On one piece a drop or accelerator and on the other piece a drop of CA glue. When you than stick the pieces together it sticks in a fraction of a second. Correction isn’t possible. The connection with accelerator is less strong than only with the CA glue.

WOW!!!
Very nicely done.
I was thinking when I would look at the pictures of the crane on the T&J site that the boom was to short, you fixed that my man. lol
I wish I knew someone that wanted one of these it looks like a really fun build, and this is a very exciting build I keep looking for the next episode.

When I worked at Harris Dam in Alabama I used to hang over the Dam and flag the crane. There’s something about giving a signal and this big monster of a crane doing what you tell it to from 60 70 or more feet up.

For me it’s the build.

The excavator I just love mostly for the track work but it’s one cool build.
The crane is an out standing build but I have no need for it in the house. My wife is tired of dusting all the toys and such I have built over the years she might just go on strike if I start having these big projects every where. lol
I’m already planing a big case out in my shop with glass doors to keep out the dust.
