[MOC] Mini Off-Road Crane

Recommended Posts

I set out to make a mini crane. I then had the Idea to use 42082 as the reference and make a mini version. Making a smaller version of a Lego model can be hard to do because some aspects can't be, or hard to scale down. This was true here as using the wheels as the point for scale and some of the 42082 can't be scaled in half.

So I just rolled with it and had a good model, but I didn't like how I did the features. Mainly the outriggers were independent and I wanted them all to function as one. It took me longer then I will admit, but mission accomplished!

 

It has:

Nicely done. Do the Jeep tires fit?

They do, however they rub when turning. The Jeep tires are 56 and these are 49 and I only have two of the others.
