    Hey guys.
    This started off as a completely different project but once I removed Hooks crane and saw it in alt mode I knew I had to build this

    Erector is made from a Toyworld Hook just repainted with a custom head.
    The trailer is an MP-10 trailer that I removed the roof and side panels from. I then added some details and paint. I modded the trailer hitch to work with Erector so that it can rotate in al alt mode. The crane arm was donated by my buddy spoonman and actually came with the "AUTOCRANE" lettering on it so I kept as it seemed fitting for the build

    I have to say, I never thought of ever building an MP Erector in my life but after completing him I and seeing him displayed with my collection I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. This is one of my most favorite builds I've done ever and I hope you guys enjoy him

    Fantastic job, man. I'm actually pretty fond of Erector's design and color scheme, and I think this translation REALLY works well.

    It's for building buildings and nothing more. Can't get me to flog the dead horse joke.

    I agree. The joke has gotten quite stale.
