Awesome - echo the comments on the crane.  Wish I had that in my garage.

Most important tool in my shop is that crane! Couldn't lift the heavy armor safely without it! 9ft tall 10 ft wide it's a must!

So I was gone for 6 months in 2018 which meant not muchange got done on the track. I'm finally seeing progress again! Bogie wheels are coming back soon and I'll be priming the frame with POR15 shortly.  Slow and steady.

That picture looks like miserable work.  I guess that means you're doing it right!  Keep up the good work, glad to hear you're able to work on your track again.

Well its not perfect but it is for me! This will not be a perfect museum piece as I want to have mine a working restoration with chips and scratches so I can do field exercises with it!  But otherwise its going well, with three coats of paint now and I am starting to reassemble the crab and bogies.  Alot of work ahead but once you've got paint, you can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Hopefully less than a year left now!

I ended up going with 33070 paint, I kinda like the 34087 better after shooting that track but I'm not about to order more paint haha.  Here's a few more pictures.
