  1. BRBO International Paystar 5000

    Thanks Tom. Here it is completed. Turns out the u-bolt to mount it to the frame are twice as wide as the frame channel, so I have to add "reinforcements" to the inside of the frame channels. That will be tricky.

    Sam, I have the Italeri crane on an L700. I had bought the KFS first but found it would have been too big. The Italeri is a very nice unit as well, just a bit smaller.

  7. Big Three engines by FTB

    Ford Model B. L-head 4, 201 cu.in./ 50 hp.
  8. Early on, it had been decided that there would be some engines on display in the shop. The first trio was the company's namesake, a flathead, a V8 and a flat 12. The boss asked the boys to prepare another one in the same manner, this time a Ford Model B, a Jeep Dauntless V6 and a Porsche 356 Carrera 1500GS.
  9. Rolls Royce Merlin colors

    Thanks Ray. Somehow your research was more fruitful than mine. Now I know what I am going to do.

    Added the fenders, backup light and mud flaps. As soon as the crane is completely dry, I'll start the detailing and assembly.
  11. Rolls Royce Merlin colors

    I have a Merlin from a Spitfire and one from a Mosquito. They will be built for display. What colors were they? Were all Merlins the same color or did it vary with the application. the only one I ever saw in the flesh was a deep maroon, I doubt that was its original color. Thanks, Pat

    Thanks guys. Painted the crane orange. A real Hiab 205 is black. That wouldn't do.
  13. Purchased a Model B engine (Ford 32, 4 cyl.) for a display project. It looks a lot more like a Model A than a model B (Oil tube and no fuel pump). So I began to modify it to represent the B.
