Shifted gears a little bit and decided to do an American Model Builders Glenwood No. 2 Oil Derrick w/ Walthers Oil Pump, mechanized. I will be putting a small oil field of about 5-7 of these on my layout. What is Texas without oil? C'mon now. The kit is not too difficult, but if you don't pay attention to orientation, like I didn't, you mess up. I had to rob a second kit to provide parts for the first attempt. Here is the tower, built, painted a rustic brown. She's wood, and will be weathered and oiled. I've already built the pump and am in the process of working that up with detail. I'll post up pics a little later on that. Moving on to build the platform.
