Chuck, I've been catching up from page one. I am in total awe. And you keep adding something new, when I keep thinking it's finished. Absolutely beautiful work.

Well, I'm going to hobble upstairs now and do some work on my little HO details. Nothing to compare to your modeling. That's absolute perfection.

It looks so good, I find it difficult to take my eyes off it!

Thanks very much for the nice words! It has been fun, and I am sad it is almost done. Sad


Almost.

That close-up is so embarrassing. It is so obvious it's a photo of a model! -- ssuR

"[T]echnically it all could rotate. But it will be a static model, though I will probably test the rotation anyway while making motor sounds (when no one is looking).

Chuck, once again, an absolutely incredible job!

But, after all the anguish you have caused us on this project, leaving a number of people speechless, others staring endlessly at the photos, and all of us needing therapy of some sort to address our feelings of inadequacy, I'm thinking a video of you testing the rotation would be in order and go a long way towards restoring our sanity.

With sound ...

Thanks very much! Greg, I should have videoed that. Especially the look on the cat's face.  Shocked

Well, this part is done, or at least I seem to have run out of parts to attach. I will try to get some final detail pics when things cool off; I  don't want to test the melting point of the 3D parts.


The construction pallet is 4" x 6" (102mm x 152mm). The wood sled this will eventually mount to will be 18" long.

That should become an iconic photo. It looks like a giant has picked up a real hoist. It's positively jarring. I think that suggests you have created a successful model. -- Russ

Well Chuck, you've certainly reached the pinnacle of realism. No matter how long or how closely one studies this model, there is literally nothing to break the illusion of reality. What's more, the studying is a pleasure! The construction, paint, and weathering all combine to perfectly portray the singular beauty inherent in a well-used piece of industrial equipment.

Nice bit of photoshop work to insert your hand so you can continue to pretend that you are presenting a model to us.
