I want it to look fresh out of the factory new, in the factory Bucyrus Erie scheme which I'm having trouble finding what it looked like, I think it looks like this but I'm not 100 percent sure





If one of you guys has any knowledge on this subject, feel free to chime in. I would appreciate it

Yep, that 22B is factory correct for paint. Always liked their color combo.

I'm loving all the hatches on the crane house. It's looking killer!

Yep, that's the factory livery, always thought it looked sharp. Are you going to continue it on the crane carrier too, or have something different in mind for it?

I agree, and I have plans to make a 1960's dump truck to go with the crane after it done

Yes. I'm going for something like this, but with the stripes.

Nice, do you have any pictures you can share?

If I had the choice when I started my build, I would have used copper and brass. But at the time it would have been too expensive.

Also. I just completed the last panels on the crane housing
But it the process I slipped with a xacto knife and destroyed the hinges for the hatch. So i will have to redo them later




I can now focus all my attention on the mechanical parts of this project.

Unfortunately, I have not. This project has been abandoned for while now. I pulled it off the shelf a couple years ago and dropped the crane house on the floor and it shattered

To top it off all the my design files for it are in a program I no longer use.
I still have all the reference material saved on my computer so I can redesign it in the future. But other projects have taken forefront.

Here is some photos of what I have slowly been working no. It's a model of a Michigan C16.
I plain to model the air controls. Pneumatic clutches, brakes, on board air compressor and tank.













This is a 3d printed pattern and core box for the bucket. It will be cast in brass or bronze. I still need to sand, fill and paint it.

That's a shame about the Bucyrus Erie, As you can see I'm partial to the old truck cranes.
But keep us up to date on this one....Love to watch these come together

That is some very nice work! I am really interested in seeing how your cast bucket works out. I've seen guys use 3d printing to make the pattern for lost 'plastic' casting, but don't think I've seen any one make the mold itself for molten metal casting. Please keep us updated.
