hi all,
i am hopeing that someone will be able to help me. when i was a kid (1985) i built a crane from a picture in an ideas book. the picture was over two pages and showed enough detail to built it if you were clever enough. now it had a double axle at the rear and two axle steering up front that was indexed (the front axle turned more than the second). the front axles used the 2x2 plate turntable and used the tire 17x43 (3634). i thought i had the ideas book but ive looked through them and no luck. i dont think it was a technic ideas book as there wasnt many technic parts. i know i have a photo of the final model but not being able to find the instructions is driving me nuts!

    Try going to the website. They have loads of instruction scans and I believe they cover all of the Idea books as well. Just cecked for you. Look under the Theme section and click on Books. Happy hunting!
