Default RC Cable Shovel

Heres the latest project, its still a little rough (weighs about 60 pounds) and runs an 8ch and 3ch radio. All scratch built out of brass, aluminum, and steel. Lets here what y'all think...

No doubt, I wish your digital imaging skills matched your creativity. Because I'd really like a better look at this project as well.

My dad knows the pre-hydraulic cable-driven shovels and cranes, he'll get all nostalgic when I show him this...

Working on some of the cosmetic stuff right now. I need to strengthen up the swivel with 1/4" steel but that might be a while, I just had back surgery so i cant lift over 10 pounds for 6 weeks





I put a can of Coke next to it for a size reference
