I did a little more detailing and weathering the past few days. Iím going to call this project finished.

I drybrushed it with a light tan to tone down the red some more and used black and rust pan pastels to give it shading.

The details I added were:
counter weights and a horn to the roof
driver/operator Jim, after all it is his yard
a chair for Jim's brither to sit on
hand rails on the front pilot
number boards to the sand bins
installed the electro-magnet and wiring, what a job.

The yard foreman, Wally, is out flaunting his hairy chest.





Here it is with the electro-magnet OFF.



And here it is with the electro-magnet ON. This will be a great help working Hopes Brotherís Scrap Yard.

Now that would put a lot of weight on his shoulders you think???
All kidding aside Frank, with each added detail, that is making your critter better and better to look at. Once again, "Fantastic job"!

Very nicely done, Frank! Tell Walley that this is not good for his pacemaker, and he should keep away from the Beast and leave Jim alone!

Thanks a lot Louis.

Bernd, I appreciate that coming from the Critter Master.

Mike and Mike, thanks.

Russ, shirtless Wally is hoping it doesnít snow tonight in Cleveland.

Frank,

I suspect, but of course could be very wrong, that "shirtless Wally" is glad he's not up here in the northern mitten!
