HI guys have been out of the loop lately as work is manic at the moment. Have you all seen the new models released by lego for City consruction theme? There is quiet a good crawler crane they have released its a bit pricey at nearly £40.00 but lots of the parts lend themselves as a basis for making quiet a good self build crawler crane. Especially the new lattice boom.
I will try and get one as soon as possible and let you know how good the boom is I.e strength and other stuff.
They have also introduced a full construction site with mobile crane and low loader I don't rate the mobile much but it could be re-made into a much better model by any of us in this group.
There is also a Bulldozer, Wheel loader and Smooth drum roller as well. And a Technic Articulated dumper. have a look at the link below and see what you think. http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Leaf.aspx?cn=223&d=9 Permalink
