have you tried attaching the saw via the other handle to shorten it a bit , then your angle will be closer to the real thing?

No you're never picky......you're not my wife ! legolaugh
It might be half a plate thickness too much - but hey it's minifig scale vs. real life look.
Did you see the road tar sprayer, the coupling on the left connects with the tap piece on the air compressor.
Keep on pumping.......pump up the volume, pump up volume.....check it out ! legowink

Have you seen hydro ladders?
much like that but it drives via controls it the cage, I used them when I worked on a farm, I've also seen them used by the council to fix lights/power lines.
by the way looks great the feet are sweet.

Thanks 'Taz' yeah I have used that idea before, a 2x1-2x2 right angle bracket and a 1x2 printed (control panel) tile does the trick....I might make this one change.
Keep on climbing ! legowink

Well done Lightningtiger! Personally, I think the oxy torch is the best out of this lot, but I love all of your ideas.
