Dave Ware’s Steam Shovel

This is a remake of the classic steam shovel. The boom was made moveable instead of fixed. A P49 motor was used with a modified engine # 10 to allow separate controls for the boom and arm; both at low speed. A string was tied to the bucket so that when fully extended, the string would pull on the release, opening the bucket.

Dave Ware’s Walking Giant

The Mysterious Walking Giant is taken from the 12 1/2 set of 1949. The mechanism that gives the giant a walking motion is also connected to flexible shafts that give the arms a swinging motion.
