Take one Foden and one Coles crane

Recommended Posts

Having seen some photos of the original I couldn’t resist creating this mobile crane by bringing together a cannibalised trackside Coles crane with an RTI Foden cab, some old airfix bits and some styrene.

A now-defunct commercial vehicle breaker near me used a very similar machine in his yard until it closed about eight years ago. His wasn't nearly as intact or clean and tidy as yours - the cab had virtually collapsed, but everything still worked. Unfortunately, it was cut up on site when the yard closed.
