Help on grain conveyor
Posted by tomnoy3 on Sunday, August 3, 2003 12:24 AM
I would appreciate any prototype photos of horizontal grain conveyors that go on top of the bins. Its the last thing I need for completing my ethanol plant. Any response is greatly appreciated. If you do have any photos, please send them to my email address tomnoy3@hotmail.com

Did a quick google search on "grain bin elevator picture" and got over 500 hits. Looked at a couple and there are abundant pics of what you want along with loading/unloading hoppers, silos, feedmills....

The pictures on the internet have become a great resource for modeling. Use them all the time to see what details might improve the kits. Google or Yahoo can bring you many ideas as you have time to look at them.

Thanks for the tips. I guess I'll try my luck at finding pictures on google or yahoo, and if it works, may more scratch-building projects await me.
