Hi Nigel

Was hoaking about the net looking at rc trucks and found this: http://www.chommle-trucker.ch/index.php?id=279
Reminded me of your tipping ramp. If you go to Modelltrucktreffen 2010 and 2009 it shows you a couple of shots of their set up:

Also a quick glimpse here:

tipping ramp mk2! hi everyone just a couple of pics just to show M8WHR that i've now added chevrons!!!! wall,hand-rails & most importantly a 'stopper',still have a wee problem with the axles when it levels out but if i make it any lower the hopper wont hold much,hopefully that will get started this week,
