  • Question re: Hoist…

    As shown at the end of track with a large block of most likely cement right beneath it….what is it’s function? (Looks great, btw, just tweaked me mind a tad bit) it doesn’t look portable.

    • Nice little build Larry. It's really starting to look like a functional area.
      I've never heard the term chain fall. I just always call it the hoist pulley. Learned something new today.

      Despite the cost of living, it's still popular

      My current build.

      • Larry, it looks and does fit into the scene very nicely.
        But Karl makes a very point.

        • Very nice, Larry! The hoist adds a lot to your scene.

          I assume you will work some soil and ballast around the base of the hoist.

          • Karl thank you. No it's definitely not portable. It's function is to lift anything heavy off the back end of the
            tool car, that is after I get it built.

            Rob thanks. The term "chain fall" was something that my Grandfather used to use and I guess it sorta
            stuck in my mind.

            Rick thank you, much appreciated.

            Mike thanks and good catch on the base of the hoist. I'll be working some dirt around the base so it looks
            like it's been "planted" and not just sitting on top.

            • Larry,

              This is beginning to look very "used" but not abused. Nice all around. I like all the displayed junk, looks fine.

              • Great job on the hoist it goes perfectly with the scene you've created.

                If it isn't to late I would move the hoist up the track more so if a flatcar came in you would be able to unload something in the middle of it.

                • Cool chain hoist like my old M548 ammo carrier.

                  • Rich thanks for the nice compliment; much appreciated.

                    Jerry thank you. Ya the hoist is glued in place so any heavy loads requiring it's use
                    will have to be at the back of the car.

                    Philip thank you; the hoist was a little fiddly but came out good.

                    • Outstanding progress Larry. The wash always brings out the details, but doing enough is the task. You have done it very well on your crawler. It does look fantastic.
                      Your hoist ( that I still to this day call it a chain fall) was a great addition to your scene. It's one of those things that make a scene pop, after you see it in place.

                        • Larry,

                          One nice detail I've seen other people use is regarding the barrels. You can bury them near the hill or a slight ditch half-way into the ground. Makes them
                          look like they have been there a while. If you don't have one with the end cut out, just drill out the end and use them that way. Just a thought. otherwise what
                          you have already done looks fine too.

                          • Louis thank you for the nice compliments. Glad I'm not the only one that calls it a "chain fall".

                            Carl thank you and thanks for stopping by.

                            Rich thanks. I do like the suggestion regarding the barrels.
