Hello everybody,

one further crane - the SMK-10 of Red Iron Models... Resin- and photo etched parts, wire and clear foil.
Chassis completely made of resin and photo etched parts.

Hi everybody,

The frame is finished as well as the super structure of the crane, the boom and the cab, the engine, drivers cab, ....
The boom is glued and soldered .... Lot of bending stuff
Next I will add some wiring to the chassis and the structure, then start the painting.
Colors I have already chosen the standard ones: black chassis, light blue cab with white front grill, yellow crane and red hook.













Cheers
Micha

Hello everyone,

the main parts are painted in blue and yellow. A first light grey washing is added and matt varnish sprayed on it...

Next some dust and dirt on the chassis ....

Very nice and original model!
The chassis looks challenging.

I am very interested in building this, but am curious: what is the length of the crane boom, and also the overall length of the vehicle? I'm hoping to adapt it for a diorama I'm planning. Thank you!
