I came across this kit maker,
http://www.chargeur-frontal-plus.fr/shop.html
He offers weldable & welded kits & ready to use units. Also parts. Hydraulic stuff looks like the Italian gear that Flowfit UK sell on ebay. Prices comprable. Note that the threads on the hyd parts will be BSP not NPT & all other bolts / threads metric.
Site is in both French & English.

I love the use of CNC cut plate as main structural elements, rather than basing the design on standard sections. It's interesting to see where and how cheapest/easiest available material affects design.

I agree Glyf,the smooth curves and radiused plate boom and dipper curves in the Mini Pelle 180 do look pretty nice,almost artful.I'd hate to think what precut components would cost for a fab-it-yourself kit with import taxes/duty/shipping..much rather see a CAD-Cut-Gerber file or something to plug into a X-Y table and cut yer own plate..maybe a plate-only hydraulics-yourself option too?

Or estimate the geometry, double check it with a stick figure model for cylinder and boom travel, and draw your own....
