|Morning Si ... You have led me down another rabbit hole then. I'm hoping there's a couple of pints of York Breweries's Centurian Ale at the bottom ... or perhaps a jar or two of Old Peculiar!
As it happens, I have played with most things r/c for over 30 years and I have a box or two of spare parts, including these wee beauties ...
They are from the winch for an r/c crawler truck. The complete set up on the right has the warranted lifting capacity of 3 1/2 lbs, so plenty for what I want. I have 4 altogether, with a couple of spare gearboxes as well.
A question for you ... I have looked at at lot of your stuff on the Noose line ... are you basically doing 1/35 size stuff on ho rail? I am finding that 1/48 around here is like finding chicken lips. However, there is no end of 1/35 stuff, and if I was to change, now would be the time.
Besides, I am totally enthralled with the r/c stuff, so any layout I do now will have very little to do with trains, and more to do with animated dioramas.
I Was Cut Out To Be Rich ... But, I Was Sewn Up All Wrong.
