    Now does it stop to provide power wherever needed or is this just being transported to a new home?

    Thanks guys.. It ain't done yet :) :)

    It's made of wood. The Transformer with cooling fins are small square slices of wood, with thicker slices alternating.. :) Tye "side fins are 1/16" X 1/16" Balsa stuck to the side. The "Control/T9ool box is another piece of wood. The Fencing is G gauge fencing. :) Kitbashed to look like I wanted it :) The "PCB tank is 4 wooden disks about 1/2" thick and 1-1/2" diameter. All topped with "Beads for neclace making" craft beads. I still have to build the support frame & the wires. :)

    Here's a link to the site, where I found it:
