Thank you, Gentlemen. Michael, I custom-etched the chain. I added it to fill some empty space on a sheet of "Wildhare Model" items I was having made. http://images32.fotki.com/v1092/photos/5/15405/7661304/PC200007-vi.jpg The brackets are attached to the chain with Walthers "GOO".

Sorry, M., but your images are really difficult to make out.
Can you try to re-post some different pictures?

Slightly off-topic, but as a Post Script the Critter ultimately belongs to a diorama that features a scratchbuilt Lumber Stacker...hence the tall piles of drying wood: http://images57.fotki.com/v66/photos/5/15405/7661304/P9300014-vi.jpg http://images114.fotki.com/v271/photos/5/15405/7661304/P9300012...

Thanks for moving the thread over here.
I missed it at the "Other Place".
What a neat flock (...herd?...swarm?...) of Critters.
Great job on the scale conversion. One would never suspect.

Thanks, Grombert..for making me laugh with a mouthful of coffee,
which ended up all over my keyboard.

Those are truly wonderful, imaginative, laugh-out-load pieces that
I hope we never fail to appreciate.
Fantastic job. The guy rowing is priceless!!
Thanks for sharing.

I don't mean to bombard you guys with tons of images of the same model but yesterday was sunny, so I took some outdoor shots of the Critter on the base of an in-progress Lumber Yard Diorama. Natural Light is quite a bit nicer than Studio Lighting........ http://images114.fotki.com/v288/photos/5/1540...

With the mechanism tucked down into the frame,
all types of detailing are possible up top!
I'll be watching this very closely.

Yeah....collectors get funny like that, but kits are no fun in the BOX!

Charlie: Is that an old kit you happened to locate or is it a new issue? I've been looking for another one. I used the only one I had as a basis for this: http://images114.fotki.com/v657/photos/1/15405/3925106/P9030010-vi.jpg "G"....but not 15". Sort-of "Crittery", though.

Thanks, Chris:
I tried that again on my screen but got the same results. It kicked to
the next line, leaving a space between the "[img]" and the address,
which throws it off.
Thanks for posting the photos......

It's been a long time between updates, but the push is on now to finish the Critter before the MER Convention at the end of this month. The seat came from the same hot rod kit that provided the grill & cowl: http://images30.fotki.com/v476/photos/5/15405/8863211/P9040002-vi.jpg Side panels with o...

Hey, if you don't post these pics on the B&D car forum, I'm going
to steal them and post them myself. The boys over there miss you

That's a beautiful job, Juergen. The rivets make the model.

I love the center-cab locomotive, too. The flat drive leaves a
lot of room for detailing. This will be fun to watch as it develops.
