1:24 scale AEC Matador 0854 with Coles Crane

Recommended Posts

Wow, it's really take shape now. Loving this build!

Hi Alpha, yes it is taking shape

A master class in scratch build . . . :thumbsup:

Very nice of you to say thanks

Made the roof out of .030 sheet, did not bend in a jig, will just glue it on later.

Here with some clamps on

Went back to the main crane and added detail, put in the holes in the back weight, safety switch on the front, added the wiring, some bolts and handles for the doors etc so now this can be painted.

Hi Kev thanks for looking in, do like the looks of the Matador and Crane

Thanks Nige getting closer, received some primer paint for the Mig Paint so should be soon.

Getting closer to finishing the Coles Crane part I made the Hook Block, need it to be a little havey so that it would look right when I add the wire so I went with brass, all parts are workable.

This is what I wanted it to look like,

Loving the engineering that you are putting into this !!!!!!!!!!!!! I take it you have a full milling machine and lathe ???????? That hook is a work of art on its own !!!!!!!!!

And as you say this will give any wire or rope you use a proper hang !!!!!!!

Hi TGA, started the hook by looking at the picture and notice it was very close to the scale of 1:24 so I just traced around it then transferred this to a 3/4" square brass

Then I milled around my marking, parted it off on the lathe this is what is left.

Then I used my Turbo Carver with a dental bit and carver the shape, then after that it was just filing

This took approx 2.5 hours to make the hook, not sure if it to scale but I think it is very close.

Thanks alot TGA

Words fail me :yikes::thumbsup:

Brodie thanks for looking in on my project

Thanks very much for these pictures, will use some to finish off some of the items, I think this is the early cab, has anyone got pictures of the later one??

Used the picture which I used to make the crane hook to make the lifting beam, made it to be 6" in depth, the clamp bracket moves at this moment so until I mount it to engine I will see where it should go.

It will be based on the centre of gravity of the real engine as a purpose made frame for that engine likely ! Your model engine will have its own centre of gravity you will need to check and maybe alter to get the look right ! Maybe a weight added here or there inside to get it looking like the photo !

Hi Nige, thinking of drilling a hole in the bottom of the engine and filling it with lead then hopefully CoG right.

Just :wow::worthy: :worthy: :worthy:

Thanks Sgt can't believe it has been a month since I updated.

Well time for an update, have been working on my project, just been lazy to take some pictures :doh:

Started to add the detail to rear wheels

I don't know how I managed to miss this build so far Richard. This is really amazing work. I am also impressed by your work space: it's not a man cave but a man cathedral :winkgrin:

The Typhoon is a looker too.

I assume you have a lathe, vertical and horizontal milling machines, laser cutting machine, water jet cutting machine, 3D printers, Ion drive flux capacitors, magnetic plasma containment fields and some technology known only to time-travellers from the 24th Century.....
