After you get through purging yourself from the Kaydee's, I have absolute scale, metal, working 1/32 couplers. If you promise to come run that thing at a place nearby to your house, an arrangement could be made.

That's one hell of a clamping job Marc... Rube Goldberg would be proud  Wink.  I like what you've done with the bonnet, nice and crisp.

WHOA!.....that first link is going to keep me busy for many hours! THANKS!

...as for the second link.....I think I have a swift kick in the rear waiting for you. Wink Grin Grin Grin

I did a bit of work on this project over the weekend.....milled the new sideframes and weights. Will post some pics when I get them a bit further (IE. they look more interesting than just pieces of acrylic with various holes).

Well not nearly as exciting or skillfull work as has been posted here in the forum of late, ...but alas...some progress on this build.

The weights were milled from acrylic. The front had holes drilled to accept the bolt detail, and the rear had the edges rabbeted to interloc and fit around the Bmann frame. This image shows the weights ready to receive a "cast texture, using Krylon enamel primer sprayed from a distance. On order to keep the texture out of the holes (so that they retain the "machined" look), I used small dabs of Silly-Putty to fill/mask the holes.




This image shows the weights mounted to the new acrylic side-frames, the rabetting can be seen between the weights and the frame. The white strips are .005" styrene to hold a neat and even space/parting line when installed. Just for extra security, taking a trick from Ken's playbook, a 1/16 acrylic rod was used to pin the the weights to the sideframe from the rear.




The side-frames set in place on the modified Bmann frame, showing the interloc/overlap, that conceals the frame from view.




....lastly the side-frames set loosly in place on the project (the gap/space between the top of the weigts and deck plate will be much smaller when the sidframes are permanently affixed).




Next will be the front and rear frame pieces........

...and hey, look Jacq.....It's got wheels!!! Grin Grin Grin

Thanks Ray.

Have now been rethinking the cab...was originally planning a typical enclosed cab, but seeing the proportions come to life (full cab may seem ungainly and visually overweighted), I am now really leaning to a low-wall, no roof version; or a low wall version with a just a 4-pole supported arced sheet metal roof.  Huh

Maybe I need to do a cardstock mock-up of the options. Undecided

.....input on this is conundrum is welcome from anyone with an opinion.

   Marc,

   this comes along very nice, well detailed, ...... I agree that a closed cab will spoil the proportions.
   Doesn't the werklok site offers plenty alternative idea's ?   Maybe an umbrella ?   Cheesy Cheesy  An open one offers a lot of potentials for
   gear-, brake-,throttlelevers, dials and a wel worn seat.

   It is now too late to remove the bee-diema. This one on a playground is based on a children's tv program Die Biene Maya.
   The best is to leave it to the kids to get rid of it.

   Looking forward to see your vision on the balanced whole, particullary the behind, and of course your paint SBS on this one.

Hey Marc! Wanna hairbrained idea for a different roof? Well you're gonna get it anyway. How 'bout a tube frame and a canvas roof? Some brass rod with some cool little brackets.
