Gordon-that's excellent! The outriggers look just as beat up as I would expect them to be. Like James said-the chipped off yellow contrasts nicely with the rest of the machine. I can say no more...if you don't win the "challenge", then there's something wrong with the judges! Woodie
____________________ It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
When I was a kid, I had a toy cast iron dump truck like that.
As I recall now, it must have been about 1/32 scale.
Brutal looking thing, very similar to the one in the picture, it hauled countless loads of real dirt--and I loved it.
Loaded with a teaspoon, and dumped by hand--backbreaking labor that my mom didn't appreciate in her flower bed.
Had forgotten it--
Memories from another era
Thank you for the picture, Gordon.
