Si, that's some serious heavy duty (cousin to Howdy Duty) screwing on that front truck! You are building a "Hummer-GAZ" it seems. Very cool.

Actually that's 'Howdy Doody'.

Ran from 1947 to 1960.  Oh, the memories.

Hi Southpier :wave:


Thanks for your interesting design drawing ! :shocked:


Not sure if that's a proposal for a new high speed railcar...

...or a reference to the Ruskie space-program though ? ???

The pilot bears no resemblance to Yuri Gagarin that I can easily identify. L:


I think as a 'review' we can Post this concept drawing.

So please consider purchasing all A.C.M.E Road Runner & Coyote products !

They are top quality entertainment & guaranteed to produce a BIG grin !! :)





SAFETY NOTICE !

Please be careful with matches kids ! ... You may singe your A$$ !


:moose:


Si.


I do like the rock formation in the background ... On Mars perhaps ?

Or could be in the styleee of Poison Rock ? Death Valley ?


WATCH OUT ! for falling 10-Ton weights & anvils !! :P

Howdy Woodie :cb:


You know what...

...I was lookin' at that pic. when I Posted it...

...thinkin', someones gonna say something about THAT ! ;)





I recently at last got 2 pairs of the Bachmann On30 archbars to add to my 'truck arsenal' ! :shocked:

Slightly rare & when around in the UK, quite $$$£££, but thrifty Wolfy did get a steal-deal, of course. :P

The mounting holes are a bit oDd, like the Tri-ang diecasts I've been modding.

Tiny little self-tapping screws, with MASSIVE pancake heads ! :Crazy:

I guess it suits the small mounting points on plastic underframes, a kinda 'anti-split' measure no doubt.


An M3 machine-screw is kinda loose in the hole, which is a tad over 4mm.

But a regular M4 panhead won't squeeze into the hollow bolster.

Hence my " Hummer " head construction. :brill:


A 1" high-tensile steel cap-screw does actually add quite a bit of useful weight where it's needed.

Just DON'T try torquing it right up, using your extra long Allen keys ! :shocked:

You may regret it !! :f:


:moose:


Si.


Gotta find some small screws now, to fix the rear motor-mount chassis in place with.

Them there 1-Ton strength cylinder-head bolts are a LITTLE bit too BIG !! L:

" Coming along great! "


Thanks very much Woodie !

I am gradually chipping away at the projects & the fleet is slowly GROWING ! :)


- - - - - - -


I never actually got around to photographing the new handset for my DIY throttle.

The handset is complete, but the main electronics board is still getting some work done on it.

A case of decisions, decisions, decisions really ... we'll get there !  ... :slow: ... :slow: ... :slow: ...





The light-action metal push-buttons, have a really nice 'tactile' feedback to them.

They are also backlit with LEDs in Green, Orange & Red...

...for Accelerate, Brake & Emergency Stop !

Great for nite-ops. !! :cool:

The flush rocker-switch is for direction change.


:moose:


Si.

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!"

Then there was "Death Valley Days" hosted at one time by Ronald Reagan.

Anybody ever listen to C.W. McCall?

I Have an eight track ('member?) of C W

And about 6 or 7 Kingston Trio 33's

And sometimes I think that Wyl E Coyote's life is patterned after mine------------

I remember 8 track.

Story time:  The wife and I went to San Bernardino County Museum and took her 16 year old daughter (Cheyenne) along.  They were having a 1950s display and you could touch the items to see how they worked.  One item on display was a rotary dial telephone.  Trying as hard as she could Cheyenne could not figure out how to dial a telephone number on the rotary phone.  Something us 'old timers' easily understand and remember  (I spent 14 years with Pacific Bell and AT&T).  It was funny watching her struggle with that rotary dial.

More stories:  I can still remember the Rosemead Central Office being step-by-step and locking up during half-time on Monday night football where no one could call out.  Sometimes the tone machine (dial tone) in the Alhambra C.O. would die and people would go nuts thinking they couldn't make a call because there was no dial tone.  You don't need a dial tone to make a call; it's just there to let you know the line is working.  Kind of like the rotten egg smell that's added to natural gas.

Anyone remember a TTY 100 with a paper reader?
