Just started a bottom Dump that Doepke never made but will look like one that Heiliner offered.

When looking through some auctions I found a picture of one and always wanted to reproduce it.  Here is the blurry picture

Found this years ago and while looking through my image archive I found this photo. I believe this was referenced from CCM toys. Very interesting to see the difference between a Doepke Prototype and the actual production model in the 50’sdoepke-compare.jpg

What a cool looking Unit Crane.  This is a very rare production model from Doepke.  Nothing ever came of it but thanks to CCM you can find out more.   I found this on a website a few years back and posting it again so everyone can see.
