I figured I would start a thread for my experiments in 1/35th.
"Wesleybeks" posted the image below in the "photo of the day" thread and I knew it was perfect for my eventual 1/35th dio. (I hope he does not mind me reposting it here - if so I will delete it).



And here is my end result;



FWIW the nozzle is 55 (scale) inches above the ground.
The drum came from the Tamiya allied accy kit.
The stand is styrene & music wire and the wood is,... well wood.
I will continue to add stuff here for my (eventual) 1/35 dio.

Marty, that is one hell of an experiment ...... brilliant work, especially love the rust/paint effects you have achieved on the support legs.

Please don't post details your actual build after the experimental stage  ........... I may just have to take stamp collecting

 Hey , Gordon , don't you have in your possession an old oil drum and a pallet ? I'm sure I saw one at your place last Saturday ! Maybe you could do a British version to go with your Series 1 Landie and stone wall ? ! ?
 I'm sure you could do a miles better job than our Floridian friend Corporal Jones !

 Actually , Jerry , it is Corporal Jones . Check out the British TV programme called "Dad's Army " . You'll see what I mean then .

   Thinking about it , it would be more appropriate if I called you "Corporal Jones" , but as your name isn't Jones , it doesn't quite work .

Private Ogden, please report to Corporal Jones for KP duty.

Marty, your little 1:35 gizmo is satisfactory.

The hose is solder.
The nozzle is made up of two Grandt Line hex "unions" for .032" pipe
I left the solder stick out for the nipple.
The lever is .010" x .020" styrene
The brass is Vallejo Bronze and the yellow handle is cheap craft paint.
Some artists oils for the "oil".

I thought you were going to model this. I think you just showed us another pic of the full size scene!  Smiley

Wow, looks great!

Well this should put you all at ease...........
I built the material rack this week after the oil drum.
Legs are .062" angle, wires are .015" and the slats are .010 x .100"
Was going along great - I thought I would go cross eyed making all the "materials" to stack on it.
Then painting all 147 pieces different shades of rust/brown/black/silver.
Not to mention working with .010" thick styrene.
So today I placed all the pieces - looked great!
Figured a light dusting of matt varnish to blend/bind it all in place.......

 Angry Sad Embarrassed Cry AARRRGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F%&*ING varnish went cloudy on me!

Anyway, I tried to save it - I rinsed it off with some mild solvent.
Fixed the cloudy but now i have some white spots to touch up, hopefully it is salvageable. Huh Cry

Figured I would post anyway (I like to post a progress pic on Sunday - sort of a personal goal)

taken on my phone as it does not warrant a "real" picture yet!
