that's a very cool way to involve not only yourself but the community as well in model building. :D

The steps and elevator ready for the outside, and a portable monitor fresh from the paintbooth.

Checking out positioning for the steps and elevator.  The elevator will be displayed in the lowered position so as to not block the interior view.  Final positioning will wait until it enters the display case.

Very interesting, I didn't realize they had MRI trailers either.

 

You have done a great job scratch building all of the MRI equipment.

When my mother had one, the hospital is so small they used one like this.

But not on a semi-permanent pad like the one pictured.

It travels around the state, so only parks just outside the Emergency Room.

Semi cab was still attached too I think. It was a few years ago

I guess that I should do a final update on this.  In mid-May it was delivered to the hospital and they had a presentaion ceremoney for it.  It is now being utilized for the purpose that it ws built.  I've also been told that it's being used for "in House" teaching and instruction.

Thanks to all who offered encouragement and advice.  I was quite honored to be placed in the position of an ambassador to the community for our hobby.  Naturally right at the end of things, my camera gave out on me so I was relegated to my iphone, thus resulting in lower quality photos.

That is really cool!   It's a model and it has a purpose!

Very nice work Douglas! I wish I would have seen this sooner, say in December before I had to get an MRI on my wrist! Of course, I'm happy to that it can be done, I was thinking of trying to build one after I had the MRI done.
