When i see great modelling like this i want my stuff to move or do something keep up the good work.
Thank you vw8343 for your response, and encouragement.
I find that the easiest way to add life to a model is to add a light somewhere.
Drew up a template for the tower framework and started building,
Added doweling (bamboo skewer sticks) where appropriately needed. Just showing how I put them in. I poke the glue down the hole and use another piece of wood to push the dowels on.
I was surprised that over 11 yards of wood (1/4" square Tasmanian Oak) was used in the towers.

Hello George. Thanks for your response.
Electronics was/is an old trade learnt in 1980's while in RAAF (Instruments-Avionics).
Was not happy with the available pulley wheels. Those that looked like what I wanted were too expensive to buy ten. I have no access to a lathe, so I decided to make them from washers. The idea is to sweat-solder the washers together. My first attempt had too much solder. After that, ten more were made very quickly.
I sandwiched a circle of soldering wire between the three washers. Greased the bolt so the washer won't solder to it. Applied heat, and the whole lot eventually collapsed together to make a pulley wheel.
