What a fun build. no plans to follow, just my measurements from a local wrecker, past experience, and the internet. I went after a 30-50 ton design for my truck. The cab has similarities form a K/W but I did not copy any particular brand. The front wheels steer, of course the booms all work. I used many different cherry woods, local Walnut. Some I am not even sure of as they came from pallets from S America with hardwood flooring. The cab is very detailed, but when I added the roof I decided on a low, mean look and now the walnut burl dash is hard to see. Purple heart and Yellow heart show off the lights and accessories well. Full undercarriage down to the air brakes and drive line. Hooked it up to one of my dump trucks, well… it took a good picture.
Thanks for looking, Doug
