That tractor looks so real! How do you make a model look so realistic? You can build my MH-60M if you want to!!!

🤔  Id like to see you build a carrier elevator diorama. 😵

I believe it has been done with two US Navy Aircrafts on it . A great dio. I wish i could remember who did it.

The spotting dolly and fire tug are looking great. 

 

One issue though.  The below configuration is not correct. 

20180613_154516_zpsbm0obmeu.jpg

 

First, the tow bar is backwards.  The two ends go around the wheel and the open ring is where it is connected to a tug.  Secondly, the tow bar is not used w/the spotting dolly.  The dolly attaches directly to the wheel of the aircraft.

Gino.

You are correct about the spotting dolly not using the tow bar and attaching directly to the bracket on the dolly. I am also being told that this dolly is never used on deck further than the elevators.

The dio was designed to be on deck way before I knew all these details.  As far as the tow backwards I might able to change that if only o could find photos. 

I added the stripes to the back of the tractor and work on the front next.

Yes, Like I said earlier, the Spotting Dolly is usually only used below decks.  

 

The Tow Bar.
