The 'Marx' tank car 'Green Girders !' ^^ have been difficult to 'imagineer' into my crane idea.

They don't really work as an underframe, alongside ones I have already made in 1:35n2  :f:


Plus the Yellow Components sent to me by 'Kens Cranes' ...

... fit OK on my wooden 4-wheeler chassis, made a while back.  :cool:


But ...

... I was still very keen to incorporate them into this crane build ... Somewhere ?  :us:

But where ??  ???  L:





After much delay & ideas under the bridge ... I finally cut the Green Girders in 1/2 !  :shocked:


SNAP ! ... Took the shortcut, with some handy side-cutters !  :P

GEE ! ... That vintage 'Marx' plastic is brittle !! :w:

Started to investigate some 'LEGO' brick parts ^^ seen in the photo as well.  :brill:

Possibly transforming it into 4 upright girders for a 'Crane No.13' ... Dub version !  :pimp:

Some more (fake !) 'LEGO' Brick parts  L:  coming under scrutiny in the car shop.  :old dude:




The 'Large 4x4 Grey Square Tile' ^^ has already had a hole drilled & tapped M3 ...  :brill:

... just right for the centre of the wooden underframe & its modded 'Tri-ang' chassis.  :)

:cool:  Some more 'goings on' with Wolfgang, down at the  M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co.  car shop ...  L:





... Wolfy thinks taping out the Big Grey Square, to M3, was a neat move !  :thumb:

Some smaller, slightly Darker Grey '2-pips' at the side, form 4 nice lil' square locations ...  :P

... for those pesky modded 'Marx' Green Girders, from    'Kens Cranes' !  ;)
