Rick, shows you how much I know about these engines..... I modified the kit's flywheel, had too many holes, but never thought of the direction of rotation.

Will add that to the other things that are wrong with it and that have been pointed out to me  Sad

Hi Gordon,

I wasn't trying to be a pain.  I just happened notice that because I had such a difficult time building the ones for my Cats.  As it is I have only about half as many holes in them as they should have.

No progress to report on my Arch project but I ran across this old film of logging operations that took place just up the road (60-70 miles) from here and there is some really excellent footage of cats and arches at work.

Take a look here.

No audio but none is really needed.

Wow, I knew that it had been a while but didn't realize that it had been 2 1/2 months.  Well I finally have them painted and weathered and am able to call them finished.  The prototype picture is of an arch that was built in the late 20's early 30's and what it looks like in 2013.  My builds represent the same arch but in 1939 and still being used so they are not quite so weathered and battered.


Everybody claims to like pictures so here they are, hope its not too many.



















Thanks for taking a look.
Well, on to something else.
