Barry Kingsbeer's Album: Highway Miniatures steam shovel.

I dragged up an ancient Highway Miniatures plastic kit of a steam shovel from the vault. Some time back I'd assembled the caterpillar tracks and then given up the ghost. The parts are pure HO scale and so tiny and delicate that I felt overwhelmed by the thought of trying to assemble it. It was time to rise to the challenge. here is where I am now.

The parts are exact scale and so many of them are tiny and flimsy, it's a daunting kit.
