2 new products from Don Mills

Postby R H on Mon Jan 18, 2010 10:03 pm

Don Mills has released 2 new products. Both are cast pewter.
The first is a 1/24 scale heavy-duty winch which comes with a length of cable that will not quite wrap the drum twice, plus there is no hook.
The second is a pair of cord reels you will need to paint them after you bend the leg and handle. You will also need to find some small wire to play off of the reel (and the pigtail that plugs into the line off fo th generator) and also make a pair of plugs

Not bad looking.... The Cord reels look a littls small for 1/24 scale... but might work..

The cord reels have a 32 P/n which IIRC is 1/32 scale

but some of his 1/32 supplies can be used for 1/24. The reel itself is 5/8" in diameter (not including legs and handle), which would be about 16" in 1/25

Nice to see him adding some new stuff. I've found most of the 1/32 stuff is passable in 1/25, a bit small but most of this stuff comes in various sizes in real life too.

I just checked a cord reel on the engine and it measures 6" wide with a 16" dia, so that would probably look right at home on a 1/25 model.
