Chain Binder Type 1
With my truck build getting there, I notice people using chains to hold cargo down, but after watching an Aussie trucking program noticed they had binders to tighten the chain, so thought I would have a go at making some.
They are injection moulded in HIPS so can be stuck together with normal polystyrene cement, and using pictures I could find tried to get them as close scale wise as I could get. (They are for show only and don't work as such.)
This comes in parts and just need cleaning up and sticking together however you want to use them, and as you can see from the pictures I have some hanging on the wall in my scale warehouse, and some showing them in use on cargo.
You get one complete binder, which includes the main body, two hooks and two arms, as well as eight links of chain for attaching the hooks on. (The chain opens up with pliers quiet easily for attaching to the parts,) then its just paint whatever colour you want and leave clean or dirty them up like I did.
