« Part 18: Drilling rig #2 Part 19 of Toy Construction series Part 20: Well Drilling Rig #4 »

Worked out in the shop a little, so there’s some progress going on even though it may not look like much.
All the little parts I’ve been building are all starting to come together to make the larger whole.
Finally got up the nerve to glue the Derrick assembly to the base so now the derrick can be pined in to see how it all lines up.

Even got some of the hydraulics in place.

Now I can glue up the travel support frame.

I’ve made up most of the hydraulics and their mounts but still needs some adjusting before I make them permanent.

Can’t help it just had to put it all together and see how it will all fit.

Still have all the really small doodads to make and put on but the main parts are all there, already thinking about building the truck. lol

Thanks for checking it out and happy wood working!!!
