After posting previously asking about barge plans I found this tractor crane and instantly thought this is my next build.
While stuck in the house out of the heat this past week I started on a plan of a modern day paddle barge prototype, it's quite big at 73.3cm x 33cm x 9cm high
Bow with paddle thruster steering.
Hull layout from bow pencil line a bit light but you'll get the idea.
The stern half of the plan the rear drive wheels will be inside the width of the hull.
The side elevation gives a general idea of the layout 2 bridge assemblies one above each stern paddle with the crane able to pivot between them in the pic the crane is sitting in the position it will be in on the finished model.
This pic' shows the stern view in progress.
The load will be 16 lengths of 32mm x 300mm PVC pipe the crane is an RC model and I'll disable the track drive and clamp it to the deck.
