How big will that Hulett be in 1/32 scale?

QuoteIf you need those ALPS decals replaced I'm doing a batch of proper (1200dpi CMYK+white) full colour decals soon so drop me an email.

Thanks Lawrence: the offer is appreciated. Fortunately it was someone else's model, about 300km away. ;D

Ray, the model will be 295 mm (11 1/2") wide, 1'770 mm (5'-9") long and 660 mm (2'-2") high (swing arm in horizontal position).
And here's a little preview: these are most of the individual parts for the drives on which the Unloader rides along the dock.




Quote from: Bernhard on February 07, 2023, 05:28:56 AMI have been working on the construction of a Hulett Ore Unloader for months.  The first parts for the 1:32 scale model have also been made. I will soon report about this project here in the forum.

This is going to be legendary!
CanĀ“t wait for the separate thread.
Regards, Hauk

Remembrance Of Trains Past


Between Bernhard and Frithjof, not to mention Helmut, Volker, Lawrence, and a few others, I think I'll go hide under a rock. -- Russ


No room under this rock Stuart and Myself are already under it -!!!!!!

Here certainly no one has to hide! Everyone here does excellent work in his field, which I personally admire very much. These different facets make the hobby and this forum so interesting.

Some amazing projects going!

I have only worked on some further CAD files for my Fordson tractor. A right angle starting crank and the gear shifter. And a hitch extender.

Thanks for the post, Chuck. Most of us would be happy just to be able to draw such a detailed machine but, as we all know, your model will easily surpass it. -- Russ


I continue to work on my project "Quai des Antilles" which I will exhibit next October in a French exhibition.
I still have a lot of work and I am less active on the forum.


QuoteI have only worked on some further CAD files for my Fordson tractor.

Great work, Chuck. I'm a big fan of these tractors. I have saved the pictures, maybe I can use them for an upcoming project.



Here is the second test assembly of the rear wall of the HO scale Southern Pacific depot in Goleta, CA. Over the last couple of weeks I've spent several hours with the laser and three times that amount with the CAD program. -- Russ

Bill Gill

Russ, What are you finding most challenging with the CAD program?


Chuck that's a starting handle mechanism Iv not seen before - but then I look and a lot of small narrow gauge diesel/petrol  locos use that system The Fordson drawings are looking good to

Russ very neat bit of drawing /cutting
