A slot must be milled in the base plate.

The last attachments are now the handbrake and the gear levers for operating the excavator.

The two levers (one for switching the chain on and off, and one for selecting the direction of travel) and the bearing block.

And all attached to the excavator.

Now the next important work is on the agenda: mounting the chain with the buckets.

Until then: stay healthy!

Phew, this keeps being amazing. What a pity you decided to build it in the current state. The hood had a lot of character!

Awesome!

The housing for the operator certainly was interesting.

Thanks, guys.

Hydrostat and Ray, I'm sure you have a point. But with the housing, you wouldn't have been able to see all the nice details like for example the winches. I also like the clean lines and the highly visible construction of the excavator without the housing.

I was looking through my archives last night and found a huge archive of lo-res Feldbahn photos. One caught my eye and I've attached it. I have no idea who the modeler is or how old the photo might be although it's probably no more than about 15 years old. -- Russ

 I have also been collecting photos of eimerkettenbaggers (thatís German for bucket chain excavators!) for a number of years and also have that image in my collection. However , I canít access them at the moment .

  I still canít see why Bernhard couldnít build two at the same time and sell one to me !

  Feel free to post more Feldhahn photos . I canít get enough of them .
