    Here are some pics of the backhoe I am going to build. I have decided to build the prototype out of wood first so that any changes and mistakes can be fixed first. This machine is loosely based on a British design from the 80s. After I finish the wood model I will make templates of all the parts so as to make the build go faster. I have no plans for this machine, just so pics and one side view drawing. I hope this works It took me longer to figure out how to load the pics than it took to build the model.

    very nice model. after you build the real one it would be a shame not to turn the model into something
