Dear modeling friends.

After some structural work (see our specific topic), we are continuing with some additions to our scenery. One add-on was the safety fence around the winch of our hoist.
Here is the photo “before modification“, with the winch installed on a concrete plate at the base of the diagonal girder, no fence.

We built the structure of the fence with pieces of 1-mm piano wire, soldered together with the help of wooden templates.

After having milled away the excess solder, we carefully glued on the inside of the structure pieces of stainless steel wire mesh. Few points of cyanoacrylate are enough to keep the mesh in position.

Then, we did the usual weathering of the part.

Here is a photo of the fence after weathering. The remaining solder, grooved by the action of the milling bits, somehow imitates the appearance of prototypical arc welded joints.

Installing (horizontally) the finished part took some time and effort. The working place was cramped, and the presence of inclined elements in the previous structures is deceiving for the eye. We worked with set squares, caliper, and a small level, until the enclosure was flat. Four drops of cyanoacrylate fastened the four “legs” of the fence, which remain partially buried in small holes that we drilled in the uneven ground.

Note: the object at the side of the large pulley of the winch is another aesthetic add-on. That was the focusing motor of a defunct camcorder, which stayed for years in our junk pile. We did some modifications and weathering, and now the piece vaguely reminds (at least to us…) some ancillary equipment, like a large hydraulic unit.
But, after the installation, one question came our spontaneously: “and the lights?” Most probably, we will install some light poles around the winch area.

To be continued.

Bonsoir Christophe.

Merci beaucoup pour ton offre pour les panneaux. Nous avons notre logo "Consolidated Nickel Mines Co." en caractères Rockwell Extra Bold blancs sur fond noir. Nous avons installé a coté de la mine un petit panneau avec l’avertissement « danger area - keep out», et à coté l’autre panneau « that means you » :-)

Si tu peux nous envoyer les fichiers des signes « danger » ca sera utile pour faire des autres panneaux dans la section du rotary dumper.

Salutations de Milan.
