Thanks Philip, here's some more.


Iím getting close to wrapping this thing up. I had to pull the motor, the red one was worn out so I replaced it with the green hornet. Actually there was too much red.

Dave said he was going to make an electro-magnet for the boom. Iíve got the 3 chains ready to go. Weíre just going to use a small magnet with some metal junk hanging from it.

The electric motor and winch on the back are from the Bantam Shovel I bashed years ago. Itís been in my parts box just waiting for the right project. It was actually a cable drum and capstan winch. I filed off the ridge on the capstan and added 2 electric wires and now itís an electric powered winch.

Frank.

Thatís a very credible critter. You used a very industrial looking paint and rust is outstanding.

Everybody pretty well summed up what I think.

I'll add one more, it's inspired me to try something similar in HO somewhere down the line. (pun intended) I'll be using it as a reference when I get a "round-tuit".





In case you're wondering what "A-round Tuit" looks like.
