I brought my tape measure to work this week. Any particular piece of equipment you need measured? I'm thinking belt loader, electro, and GPU will be a good start.

Suggestions for models will be seriously considered.
...what can I say?...if you feel like measuring a piece of equipment...please do!

Realistically, I prefer to work from basic photo views of each "side" of a vehicle of equipment.
(right, left, front, back, top)
close ups and details shots are bonus...as are angled views.

If I have perpendicular views of each side, with little distortion,
I can usually extrapolate dimensions based on one or two known measurements.
For example, if I know the vehicle's wheel rim diameter, and tire size,
I can figure out the basic overall length, height, etc within a side view photo of the vehicle.
Trick is finding out the exact wheel and tire size!

If I have the make and type of vehicle, or actual model number, I can sometimes look up dimensions.
But...the more actual measurements I have (of any part of the equipment) the better!
Especially if photos of the item come with the measurements.

Measures by themselves, don't work unless I know the exact equipment they apply to.
So photos of whatever you measure, are also appreciated.

Please feel free to post more suggestions here...infact, this would be the ideal place for suggestions and critiques.
Tell me what I should or shouldn't add to this kit.

But since I have started work on the first model, I have started a dedicated Design process thread.
I'll detail the models as they develop and get added to the Kit.
