    alternate ballast system

    Post  klunk on Fri Apr 06, 2012 10:24 am

    Had a word with Richard the other day. While hunting around looking for info on the revell gato conversion sets, I stumbled accross a website for this alternate ballast system. Looks simple to build.
    Any further info from anyone would be helpful, as it seems they company are no longer trading!!

    Awhile back, I tried to hunt down the owners, but was unsuccessful. It was a company out of China, I believe (at least that is where my bunny trail left me). It is a real interesting system, but I believe it used thread/string/cable to pull the piston back and forth. There have been discussions on that and I think the biggest thought against it is cable breaking. Still, I will play with the idea down the road in the distant future. There are other systems I want to work with first.
