The Cement mixer - The photos with the measurements were supplied some years back by a friend of Gordon the "flying Scotsman" The single photo is of a later version  The Drum had to be detailed for me to continue the build due to the frame which will hold all the in & out chutes  goes on next the base for this is an acrylic tube with plastic card ends  - detailed with Master Club nuts /bolts
The engine will be a vertical cylinder type - on the lines of  a Fairbanks Morse engine  - some good UTUBE stuff available on these engines driving Early Cement Mixers

The start of a bit of machinery for the Huffkins Mine Project - A Hoist driven by a  petrol engine - the engine "Lump" is a 1/35th Cat engine beefed up to 1/24TH
and an early Cement mixer
The hoist all parts in a trial fit situation balanced so no heavy breathing at this point ! no detailing at this point still trying to work the bits out (what does what)
my Thanks to Chuck for all the drawings posted on the forum

Kim, I think Narayan explained how he models asphalt in the 2013 Modelers' Annual. If you don't have it and want a copy send me a note. -- Russ

I'm fine and I finally get the control technology for my Klosterstollen model solved.
That's just not something that would fit into this great forum, like your excellent work shown here. There are now 3 buttons on my model now, where visitors can even start actions in the model.

hi, Helmut how are you doing nice to hear from you.
in my last group of photos, some of the brickwork was bothering me so out I came.my work has mainly been directed at concrete and asphalt both I find difficult, I really like the asphalt in Cahill expressway.i feel I am getting somewhere with the concrete but the asphalt is another thing I just keep trying.
in one of the photos, you can see the back scene board onto that I will glue the back scene this is also the top of the box-cheers Kim.

Finally a reason to exclaim this to the world: Nick, go stand in the corner!

I hope you guys realize that I didn't get "too old" to keep publishing. It just wasn't worth the enormous time and effort to please a handful of superior artists with superior intellects for an insufficient income. As much as I love publicizing a gorgeous model, editing articles and restoring photos, laying out pages and, worst of all, needing advertisers, became too great a burden for too little compensation. The best I can offer is this website and I've always hoped it would be, if not quite enough, then at least adequate.
