    Well iv finally gotten back from my long needed trip from Cuba =)
    and sence i was already driving around i thought id stop by wal-mart n pick up a couple of things=)

    I got a Salvage and a Truck Mounted Crane toy i removed the Crane of the toy. I Removed Salvages Antenas/Spikes and im planning on moving the windsheild and cutting off the arm cannons/tubes off as well as a head swap but im not sure im thinking of using Wreckage head for hook but im not sure if it will look well?

    Ideas? Comments? Dislikes Welcomed =)

    *HEAD UPDATE*
    Iv Chosen a head for Hook the Wreckage Head!
    with some repainting it will look (Borat Voice) Very NICEEEEEEEEEEEEE lol

    *BODY UPDATE*
    Well today i took off the sides of the cab, im trying to use the Dropkick Weapon underbelly to give the Crane more lift when its mounted going to see how that works out, will have pictures up momentarly srry 4 the bad quality its on my cell(crane n the weapons underbelly arent conected as of yet!)

    Crisis Averted =)
    Well i have thought of a replacement Crane 4 Hook, and it is Hightowers Crane!=D its much lighter! But it still flopps over soo iv decided to Glue the Bumper to the bed of the truck, i looked @ its worked it over and it will still transform and it wont hang! YESS!! lol =P

    *UPDATE Aug 17, 08*
    Well its been a while sence i last updated Hook,
    soo here it is some updates lol
    i started painting from the torso down a nice Flat Aluminum :) 
    i also put some purple on the torso part and his side covers aswell
    and his arms, i removed those cannon/tubs of n sanded down, IMO it looks like he has HUGE hands lol.
    and i was able to attach the underbelly of Dropkicks weapon as a bost so it could hold the Crane :) 
    Hope you all like it soo far, the final painting process is up next :)

    I must admit, I'm curious as to how the Salvage mould pickup will work with a crane arm. I'd have thought Longarm would be a more natural base mould for the mod. But I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

    I do like the choice of head; I'm not a fan of the mould's normal head, so this is a big improvement.
