It would be super great if you added Forest City IA Sept 12-14 to that list :) :)

I would love to see this in person but moved too far away to make all of the old MN shows I used to go to.... About the only one I'll make this year is Forest City.

It looks great from the pictures though.

I was pleased to see it at white pine also. Would have loved to talk to you but got whisked away by family.

Marv, It was hard to tell who had the biggest smile in that picture? I know one thing, that little guy was pretty excited to sit on that Phoenix log hauler (he even asked himself). It helps to see/compare it's actually size (1/2 scale) with people in the picture. I know you made his day, as a matter of fact, his weekend. Very impressive piece to see in person !!! Thanks for sharing.

Nice job on the 1/2 scale log hauler and that steersman looks like he is ready to get to work.
That off road Sedgeway looks like fun also. Is it modified or an optional setup?

Just a bump. Our Moderator posted some more pictures for me (in post #106.) Thanks Craig. For those who don't know that much about this pc. It took at least 2 people to run it. Where the young lad is sitting was the driver and in the cab is where the other engineer ran the controls. Great details (and many hours) where used in making this unique 1/2 scaled model. Thanks Marv for sharing it's story.
