What's the fun in having a lot of rolling stock and nothing to haul?

A while back I dismantled a paper shredder. http://www.modeltrainforum.com/showpost.php?p=95351&postcount=80.

Basically I turned it into a container to hold a large power shaft complete with key ends.

The final look.




This shows the two sides I ended up painting more silver. The top are just colored dowels from the XMas Tree Shop for 69 cents a bag.



I decided on keeping the black color and just used highlights







The ends are dowels that were cut with a dremel cutting wheel, that is not recommended to do inside. It was kinda smokey.

It's neat to be able to troll around here and see what others come up with. Very easy to get too many good ideas for things :laugh:

Strange load Two

The beginning. I found this at a thrift shop and decided to use it for a strange load. It was long so I cut it down and played with a ping pong ball for effect.

A broken light saber.







Cut to size.



With a ping pong ball inside.



and out


In green, for Ed.
