I could have had this thing done a week ago if I had stayed with the plans. lol
I keep adding ideas and making it more complicated than it already is.
But that’s part of the fun of it.
This is a brain puzzle that needs to be solved.
All of the big stuff is done but I can’t bring myself to glue it up so yesterday I doweled all the bases and engine compartment so it will be able to come apart for one last sanding at the end.
Played with the cabin furniture.
Our operator is in his chair all day so he needed some cushions to be comfy.
Remember one thing this is not a play toy it’s a poser so making things stay in one place is more important to me then function or play ability..
Here’s how the power wheel is adjustable, not set in stone may jiggle it around a little more before I’m done.
When all is tightened down the wheel floats on the all thread.
The arm is the main thing I want to stay in one place up.
I’m bolting the boom so it can be tightened and stay in one place, the other arm will be bolted too just haven’t got to it yet.
I will be hiding all the metal work so it looks like it’s all wood when I’m done.
Fighting with the idea of hinging the door but I just don’t know if it’s worth the heartache when the hing breaks.
Any votes for or against ??? lol
That’s all focks!
