The past 3 weeks on and off the massive bucket has been constructed







This bucket is all styrene except the teeth. I drew those up in cad and printed here in the shop. They have been sanded to look worn. The entire model will be weathered.
Here is a link to a video of the bucket, you can see more detail with the video.

Dude this this is massive! Good work so far, I'm jealous. Did you use a mini mill for the holes in the catwalks?

Thanks first of , and yes its massive .
All the holes were hand drilled with a small finger drill. The laser marked the holes and i drill them all out and it took FOREVER to do

Hello

Over 7000 hand - drilled holes for the catwalk ?? You are crazy...Applause

Was a aluminium perforated sheet not easier to make the catwalks ????

I love this scratch - model.

I am working since november 2004 on my scratch - model of the Gotthard - tunneling machine in scale 1:50 ( some pics from it are here in the forum ) and I hope I will have completed it some day when I will arrive the totally length of nearly 9 meters........

I wish you a merry christmas and many successfully hours of work with this model in the coming year.


Best regards from switzerland

Manfred

I cannot believe that there are people with this kind of talent and patience. This is marvelous and I am humbled by your work. I hope you win the contest. GREAT work. How long to drill 7000 holes? CAW

Not a fan of BIG models in particular, but of scratch built project as yours.

Some knows that I also like doing scratchbuilt projects, but I admit not having such level of talent you have.

So its always interesting to see such commitment and craftmanship in the making of a model.

Best of luck for that project, and for the contest. Applause

Such a wonderful project even if your dog do not seem to enjoy much Not talking

The bucket alone is one museum piece.
