Its a bit of a challenge (well for me) in 1/35th a dilapidated diesel pump working just ! measuring 50mm high (5ft 6in in 1/35th)  It should end up on the small diorama with the Forestry inspection critter which is now out of the paint shop ready for assembly

Are the motor parts from scratch or are they commercial shapes or molded parts you found? -- Russ

Drive motor body is acrylic rod - the pulley is a Grandt Line critter wheel with flange removed - the pump is a tank suspension bit (which looks like a pump) the pulley is a 1/72 tank wheel
other bits are Evergreen strip with the odd bolt and nut
I wanted all the components to be different colours as if they have been replaced through the years - if it was all the same I think it might look like a "blob" of bits in 1/35th
All the wiring will be rubber strands  from a luggage strap - it forms nice loops and is very fine

Waited to long for Evergreen angle and Humbrol paint to arrive  the Post situation has gone up side down ! - So new version now in 1/24th scale (all bits in stock) and looking at the project the pump looked a bit lonely So I thought a fuel depot would do the trick a  small open shed with hot oil engine driving a 3 cylinder compressor for the air locos and the diesel pump
Dug out an unfinished engine and compressor out of the stock box (next to the bin) replacement "governors balls " some filling to do on the fly wheel and the normal amount of nuts/bolts should do the trick

Everything is to your usual credible and neat standards. The small components seem well suited to 1:24. -- Russ

Great work!

In the last photo, the engine looks like it has a happy face.

The pump is obviously a friend of Thomas.  I expect to see a video posted later this week of it singing! Grin Grin
