Thanks Charles! We are experiencing a couple major bumps but still surviving. I'm still building, but not as prolifically as before. I find it amazing that with all the extra time from these stay-at-home directives; I actually have less time to model than before! Still, I'm getting a few things done, as you can see in my manufacturing thread.Great to read a comment from you buddy. Its been a good while, since I read anything from you. Hope all is well with u and the family. Appreciate your kind comment, as usual. God bless.
Well, just hang in there buddy. And appreciate your warm sentiments. Have a great day.Thanks Charles! We are experiencing a couple major bumps but still surviving.

God bless you too and keep these outstanding dioramas coming!
How about putting something on the hook and give it actual tension? Maybe have the cab still attached?It is to get the tension of the crane cables straighten out. It's a little better than before, but you can still see a little kink . Any suggestion let me know.
Appreciate your suggestion. I had thought about having the cab as you suggested but I really wanted to have the door open, to be able to see the detail inside. I have not completed the weathering. But thank you for your suggestion.How about putting something on the hook and give it actual tension? Maybe have the cab still attached?
Amazing work Charles. Maybe some more grime around the bases of the beams, those things catches years of stuff built up.
Thank you Luiz.The weathering technics look amazing!
Very good and solid advice Jeaton01. Although, I did not understand every technical word you used, but I think with a photo of the part you are referring to that I should let the welder weld, would be helpful. I do know the ripper device, but exactly what part of the ripper are you referring to? I apologies for my ignorance in this matter.Some suggestions on the welding. I can't think of a good reason to use a cutting torch on an assembled roller. Rollers on newer Cats are pretty much sealed units with bearings inside, when you see one leaking it has to be disassembled and overhauled. Old cats weren't sealed and you hit the rollers with a track grease gun every day or so. However, in either case they would be disassembled with the shaft and bearings removed and the work would be done with an arc welder. The most frequent thing that might be done is building up the areas that contact the track rails.
I would pose the welder near the ripper and instead of a cutting head a welding tip or rosebud would be attached to the stock of the acetylene torch and he could be hardfacing the ripper shanks or teeth.
Appreciate your help in suggesting a lightening kit. I hd contemplating something like that. Great kit. I may just give it a try.This is pretty outstanding work Charles- I love all the details you put into your pieces. Your figures outshine my attempts so kudos there my friend. The only thing I could add is if you're doing lighting for this one, this company does a pretty good welding LED set, and their stuff is great.
