Scale Model: Power line Transimission Tower
This is my HO scale (1:87) model of a Steel Lattice Transmission Tower. The real-life tower is 150 feet tall. Mine is almost 21 inches. It's made of .018 inch thick "Laser Board" which is essentially Kraft paper impregnated with resin. It took 3 hours to cut and 5 hours to build. After 6 months of practice with the Emblaser, I have a good system now. The un-opened can of Coke weighs 13.6 ounces, so the structure is very robust. I need to make some insulators for "power line" attachment, then paint it up. I will post more pics as I go. Thanks for looking!
