[MOC] Mini Mobile Crane [Free Instructions]

Recommended Posts

A tidy, smart build packed with efficient and smooth functions - what's not to like? Other than a rather stubby counterweight, I really enjoy how this model looks and works - and has reminded me I need to have a go at building a mini crane myself one day. Excellent work!

If you mean that it's kind of short here, I know those proportions are a bit off, but I didn't want it sticking out too much and once I had the turntable in that spot, I didn't want to move it forward either because the base/bottom was working out for me well.

Very cool, dude! I do not really like yellow construction machinery, but this would be desirable to collect!

Thanks for the free instructions of your MOCs.

Fantastic package of functions at such scale - and it looks great! With the stickers used it is practically a set ready to be packed and sent to the stores! Well done! 

Edit:

Will definitely build it, to do some heavy lifting on my desk ;-)

Well deserved feature on TLCB...

I painted it red... very nice build, excellent chassis and the solution for differential. I enjoyed it a lot!

Awesome, thanks! It really looks good with red pieces. Are planning perhaps some kind of video with it ? You've got a quite a lot of subscribers, that would help my channel a lot :D

Anyway, since you liked the build and I can see you've got a ton of various bricks - check out my other instructions, especially make sure to build the Cyber Cruiser - I know it has weird suicide doors and front lights/bumper area isn't perfect, but just do it. It's worth it :)

Wow.. I think you have updated some since I last saw this thread.  I love the engine!  Not sure of its placement.... but better than nothing.  Using the flower elements.... Brilliant!

I just posted this thread, but you probably saw the renders in the trucks thread. Coming to thing of it, I should post it there as well.

Well, initially I thought I had to have that gearing for the steering knobs/lights at the front so I couldn't put the engine there, but after I've added the steering knob at the back, it made less sense to have those two at the front being used. It's weird for me, but for this kind of vehicle/chassis, its better to control it at the back. I might revisit this model after some time to move the engine, rework cabin to add some interior details and maybe even doors, and to check if maybe I could make it without the rare steering elements. Might also improve some stuff around the crane arm and counterweight.

I did use those pieces already in my Front Engine Roadster, it's just a perfected version of that crankshaft :)

Sorry, no plans for a video, I am way behind even with filming my own MOCs, mostly due to lack of time and overall laziness :-)
