Mikem,
The actual full size crane had two shoe width options: 36" and 42". My model is 1/12th scale (1" = 1') and the tread with of the model turns out to be 3.25", or midway between the actual crane's two available widths, or 39".
Thanks for the question.
Tom

Mikem,
The model's OAW of the crawlers is 17", just slightly wider (@ scale) to the full size crane's 16' 10" width when fitted with the stone 36" wide shoes.

Awesome! Thank you. Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have at cranemodel1015@gmail.com or call me at
(209) 329-7250.
Just curious, do you work at LMS, (as that is the address I shipped the flash drive to)?
In any case, have a GREAT DAY!
Tom

Hello, all. I purchased a set of Tom's plans and started gathering materials for the
mechanical build. The R/C part may (no, WILL) be a big learning curve. Just one step at a time, one catastrophe at a time!!
I'm wondering if anyone else out there has started work on this machine yet??

Jon,
Let me know how your build is going and how I might be able to assist you with the RC aspect of the model.
