About the Models
All models are built at 1:16 scale. Serge drafts the plans for each model himself, from measurements taken from the actual machine or from photographs. He selects the woods that will most compliment and accentuate the shape and function of the model. Every part of the model is hand made at his workshop. The models are finished with clear lacquer to bring out the natural colour of the woods used.
Every model is made to mimic the actual machine-vehicle-building. All models have moving parts that enable the model to be manually adjusted and displayed in several different positions. For example:
- All tires spin and front wheels turn.
- Tracks (such as on a grapple yarder) turn.
- Turntables (such as on an excavator) swing.
- Hydraulic rams work.
- Doors open.
- Cable drums turn.
- Grapples are fully functional (open, close and swivel).
