Here are some pictures of the progress I made. I have worked on it for almost two years now. All the axles, including 4 driven ones are ready now and so is the suspension. Most of the carrier frame is there. The next thing to do is to connect all the steering axles, then to connect all the driven axles. This will be a challenge because space is very tight!
I hope you enjoy!

I had a bit of trouble with the steering linkage (No space!), so the past week was dedicated to solving these problems.
I had to adjust the suspension system a bit to make space for the steering linkage. here are some pictures of the results.

Here is a little update. I made the frame work of the cab. The back is still completely open and I will keep it that way till I have found a place for all the components,like steering servo, etc.
With the cab the whole thing starts to look like something.
See you at IMCATS!

A little update.
I worked on the rear end of the carrier and built the sewing motor and gears. The whole assembly, whichcan be seen on the first picture on top of the frame belongs inside the frame as on the second picture. I started building the outriggers and have been working on the design the transfer box.

A short update:

During the past month I worked on the outriggers. This proved to be quite a challenge. They have to be strong and because they are a real feature of the crane and are very prominent, there was just one way: make exact copies of the real ones. I decided to use steel for strength and brazed most of the important joints. There are still a few details to be done, but the basic outriggers are there.

I made a little bit of progress. The transfer box is finished. It has a differential between the front 2 axles and the rear 2 axles and 2 speeds (low and high). Each axle will be powered separately from the transfer box.
