Even though you made a perfect model - it just shows that these early diggers requires a lot more training to operate to something like the precision of modern equipment (not that the operator don't improve with time in them too). I agree on the handle vs finger size too  ;D

I'm sure with practice the operator would get to the point where its second nature - I keep having to stop and think which lever in which direction...!

Hi Chris,
to see it in motion and following the operations is a great fun.
That is an extraordinary project, made with passion and the love to the all the small details.
Very well done.
Kind Regards
Achim
