Crawler Crane - 42038 C-Model




In anticipation of the Technic crawler crane which will be released in 2015 by Lego, here is an alternate model for the 42038 set. It's the first MOC I've built using tracks, and I quite enjoyed the process.

Note: this C-Model uses only parts from the 42038 set, but does not use all of them.

    Great build! I love the Arctic series - but haven't got interest in the orginial 42038. However, I will consider buying the original set, in order to build your version.

    I don' t know why I hadn't seen this build before. I built the 42038 last year, and put it away to make room for other builds, namely the 42042. Has anyone done a side by side comparison on height between the this MOC and the 42042?

    One of those C-Models that make you wanna reconsider buying the set. Good hob, mate!

    Great alternate MOC, nicely done, quite enjoyed building this one =)

    Shame the string that comes with the set isn't really long enough for the crane arm, but I won't hold that against you =)

    The inventory is invalid - it's just a copy of 42038's one (+ spare parts).

    If noone does anything about it, I'll fix it in a month or so, when I have some time to build this thing.

    Very nice alternative build for the 42038. I already like it more then the original model..
