If you take the number of parts that went into a model, this is my largest one so far. A large model requires a detailed description. Therefore I divided this page into several sections.
First there are some images that show the finished piece - they can be found below.
Then there are twelve sections with pictures of different functions and features of my model. Choose one of the links from the list or click on the corresponding area on the image above.
Finally I have written a four-part text that tells the story from the beginning to the finished model and describes its construction.

Move on to the first part of the story
