Stumbled onto this site/store at Shapeways and thought some forum members might find these circa 1915 crawler models interesting. But I can't find what scale(s) they are https://www.shapeways.com/designer/tracmodel/creations

I read under the pictures two at 1:87 - HO and last one, 1:64-S. Look good.

They look pretty good. I randomly choose the 45 HP 1915 one and it is available in S and O scale.

They usually show renderings of the models. In this case, every image in the link is a rendering. If anybody actually buys one of those models or anything similar, please post an image of its appearance before you clean it up. Might be educational for many of us. -- Russ

A plea for help.

I have neither the aptitude nor the inclination to make digital drawings for manhole covers for my ongoing projects. Does anyone have a suggestion for a person who does this kind of work (and I am happy to pay, of course)?

Thanks for your help.

Many of us could help you. Ed Traxler seems to be our current resident expert but even I might be capable of something like that. I am very slow, though, because I don't use SketchUp regularly so use me as a last resort. -- Russ

Thank you, Craig.

Ed! Good to see you posting. I like the manhole itself along with the cover.

Thanks Russ and Ed. I am getting some very generous help from a forum member. I know it has been said before, but this forum is incredible.
