Kettenwagen- 3T jack scratch building.

Due to increased weight of the vehicle after fitting the tracks the original VW car jack was`nt sufficient to lift it.
I wanted something more beefy.
Decided to use the german 3T jack, and build it from scratch.
After constructive disscussion on Missing Lynx forum i managed to obtain some pictures of the original jack thanks to Eric GEORGE.

I have taken the measurements of the screen, and made the initial drawing.

I have estimated the jack to be about 75 cm long, so my drawings were about 3.8 times smaller than original jack. Then i have calculater the rest of the diamentions and rescaled them to the 1/35 scale.
Heres where the building begun. Using various spare brass sheets, and styrene i made the main body of the jack.
