I recall that we once had a outstanding forum member who was always reminding us that for a lot of ideas/techniques "less is more". I think that the awareness and coloring methodology of the weathering is well done.

Update on the "Tugger".

The only thing left to do is the chains on the sprockets!!

The chain supplied does not fit. Most likely because the teeth on the two sprockets are different sizes...

Absolutely fantastic project. I am envious that you have completed the tugger and your work is top notch. It appears that all went together great, and the weathering is perfect.
Exceptional modeling.

Your hoist is absolutely cooler than cool. Very well done.

I assume you have a plan B for the chain.

Fantastic job of weathering Jerry. You look like an "old pro". Well maybe not a pro, but . . .

Thanks so much Carl.

A new building for the machine shop.
I found a really nice one on line to scratch build.

I can't add anything except keep it up. The beach is no excuse now.
