Very nice Rod, Love the weathering and the overall concept. Where did you get the valves?

Tim,
The valve is from Western Scale Models. Valves in their kits come in parts which have to be made up. All I did was drill out the valve body and inserted a stiff wire. The gland nut; is a NBW, and wheel are resin castings from Ian Lindsay Models http://www.ilm.50megs.com/ Both have been drilled out and inserted over the wire and glued in place. Very simple, though a bit fiddley.

Hi Rod, Very nicely done. It's hard to tell what scale that is. Very realistic weathering. A great concept for a peanut butter lid challenge entry.

I am not going to have this done by the deadline. I am just learning too many new things like making trees from wire and lit stoves. Also, there has been too much life lately and not enough time for anything else. Should I start a new thread or can I continue to post past the deadline in here?

Me too, Matthew. I've been on a bender trying to get this thing done, but, alas, it is not to be tonight. (or is it this morning?) I was doing fine, but then the gremlins came calling and were having their fun with me.

Posting as soon as posible!

No problem with being late guys, the thread will still be here and we will still be very interested in your progresses.

Ok, as for the regular deadline the challenge is over, it's been great to see all these great entries come together, I would like to thank all who participated.

Thanks to all who participated and to Nelson for starting this Challenge.

The thread will no longer be a sticky but should be easy to find using peanut as the search word.

So if you are still finishing up you project please continue to post results in this thread.

The final pictures thread will remain a sticky until the end of March for those who would like to post their final pictures.

After looking at everyones pictures on the PB lid final pictures thread, I must say that this is a collection of some of the finest modeling I have ever seen here the forums. Kudos to everyone. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to post pictures.

As you think, so will you be.

Well here I am. At long last, I have completed my PBL. Seems like a month of Sundays, but who's counting? I sure had fun with this model.

I apologise to those with dial-up, because I have a few detail pix I would like to post here. I have 2 videos to share as well. One on the model and animated characters and the other on how they work.

That's enough gassing and wincing about.
Here are the pix.

The Unwanted Guests













































A few notes of interest.

*The leash is made from one of my hairs.
*The junk is plaster casts I made from latex rubber molds.
*The saw is made from tin foil.
*The tarp is tissue paper glued to tin foil with paint.
*There are 6 individual movements taken off the motion of one motor.
*There are 11 LPBs, 3 dogs and 2 cats.
*The ferns are made from a green feather.

That's all I can think of right now. Here are the videos:

Display.

Mechanical.
http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=8156962816497309594

I would like to thank the talented people here at RRL Forums who have given me guidance, ideas, techniques and inspiration. I would have never built a model like this without your willingness to share. I thank you all. You are true gentlemen.

Now I get to clean up my bench.

Christopher, that is the most amazing piece of modeling I have ever seen. The mechanism is incredible in how it all works. To think all of this the size of a PBL just .....well I am in AWE.

Thanks so much for sharing.
