Roland, if you are running out of space, I'd be more than happy to take and find a home for any of your models.

Hi. Finished the donkey last night and completed the detailing in the shed. The whole thing is 3x6 inches. Tarp is kleenex colored with chalks. The parts I didn't use are in the box and piping is on the workbench. I have never seen a picture if a donkey being repaired so I just guessed at it. The stack will go on the ground when the model is planted, I just ran out of room.



I just realized I never thanked all of you who responded to the last photo. Please forgive me and accept my belated thanks.

Roland

Excellent. Looks like the workers have just gone on break and will be right back.

Thank you all. I have been working on this project for 2 years now and am getting anxious to finish and move on.

Mark, The hoist is make from brass wire and square tube. Two pieces of wire bent into a V for legs and slots cut in the bottom of the square tubing to glue them in. Took about 10 min to do. Painting and details took several hours.

Mark, The donkey is an old CHB kit. It was a real trip to put together. 115 pieces in less than 2 square inches. Maybe someone knows if they are being produce by another company

Mark and Roland, the entire CHB line was purchased by Sierra West.

One of the donkeys made by CHB is still available:
