Interesting machine David ... looks like a complete history of the 3D ... mk1 dipper, boom is an early mk2, mk1 mudguard superstructure, early mk2 or 1975 loading arms, and a mk3 cab :dizzy:

My thoughts exactly Martyn - note the lack of Hydra clamps and that boom - well I never - looks almost prototype :eh:
