I am scratch building the sanding tower at the Milwaukee shops in Milwaukee.  It is mostly finished, but I need some closeup photos to add details, hoses, etc.  


I constructed it based on these 3 photos on the web.

Let me know if you have detailed pictures or can point me to more photos on the web.  Thanks.

Thanks Alan for your comments and suggestions.

Here are a few quick iPhone pictures.  Yes, the dome roof was a compromise (using the Plastruct tank ends) that will be a little less obvious after painting.  I had already added the hatches.  I will try the scoring (I should have done it before assembly).

I was unable to find detail of the hoses, but I based them on other Milwaukee sand towers.

Lastly, I need to pick up more of the ladder cage material to add to the top of the delivery tower, then it will be ready for painting.

Thanks Alan for the cage recommendations.  I know you have been down this road on many projects.  I found some more cage material in another kit, so I will "borrow" it to move along the project.  

I was wondering if those little balls above the beam were floodlights.  Thanks for the confirmation.  I will get busy making them and adding SMD LEDs.
