I couldn't let good enough alone, so I modified the Lego minifig scale Unimog set as follows:
- Replaced the wheels and tires by a smaller combination.
- Added steering.
- Replaced the snow removal equipment by a bed and a hydraulic crane.
- Used the original wheels and tires as the basis for a dump body trailer.

Thank you for the sharing.  It is so nice to know the innovation from the past and the advance technology worked together and created this wonderful streamliner car.  I enjoy it very much.:)

I took this sequence of pictures in the hope Google would turn them into an animated GIF... It worked!

We went to visit Annecy. We spent most of our time touring the museum housed in the castle which was built between the 12th and 17th centuries. The old town is located at the foot of the hill where the castle  is.

On the our second day in Europe, we went to Chamonix.
In the morning, we took a pair of cable cars to the "Aiguille du Midi". The cable cars go from about 1,035 m altitude at the bottom of the valley to  3842 m at the summit.
In the afternoon, we to a rack rail train to "La Mer De Glace", or rather what's left of that once huge glacier.

We were in Europe last week. On the first day we took a boat from Nyon, Switzerland, across Lake Geneva to Yvoire, France.

+Wayne Moyer​ and other geeks: I'm taking apart my cheap Dashcam to fix rattling buttons.
I'm gluing the common part that holds the four buttons together.

I've got a problem with my dash cam where my microUSB seems to be loose. That or its shutting off because it overheats. One or the other. I might have to do this as well.

We went out to the Coast yesterday and I took a few pictures... 
Actually, I took a lot of pictures, but these are the few ones I dare sharing!

Revisiting an old friend. I originally built this crane to take to shows so the priority was ease of transport and setup. See its original boom here: http://wegmuller.org/lego/technic/cranes/index2.html this was 11 years ago. Because of its 10' boom, I could not set it up in my house (8' ceilings), I did have it on a shelf with a very short boom, but it wasn't right.
Then a few days ago I showed a crane with a jib boom to +Leslie Wang​: her reaction was that a model of such crane could be used as a reading lamp...
Right then and there, I knew I had to add a jib to my Lego crane! So here are some pictures of its first setup with the new configuration. It still needs a hook and I should really trim the excess cord I used for the pendants... By the way, used cord from window blinds: it's very strong nicely woven.

I did mention to David that the crane is at much higher risk of being touched by toddlers in its new incarnation, but that didn't deter him! :p

On our way back from Europe, we flew over Iceland and Greenland. For a short time, there we no clouds. I'm not 100% sure if I shot these over Iceland or Greenland...

Remember, Greenland is ice. And Iceland is green.

It's a classic ice cream shop: what's not to like?

Not as good as it used to be. Maybe it feels that way because other shopping options are now available, especially online.

Great produces. Love the Deli and cold / hot buffet. Some employees have a bit of an attitude, hence the lack of a fifth star.

Great location, love the patio. Food is OK, service is uneven.
