The dimensions of the platform will depend upon the barrel you find. The barrel should ride on inverted casters mounted on the top of the platform. Position the casters so that the barrel will not jump off in either direction. If your barrel has beads where the top and bottom were attached, locate the casters just inside those beads. If your barrel is like mine, with a bead at the top and a taper at the bottom, the wheels should hit the barrel where it tapers at the bottom and just inside the bead at the top. Since there was no bead at the bottom, I attached a board between the wheels at what was the top of the barrel to keep the barrel from jumping off in that direction. The garden cart you plan to use will govern the height of your compost barrel's platform.
With the price of electricity consistently going higher, the alternative energy solution is very interesting. Coupled with the fact of so many power outages throughout the country in the last few years, producing "your own power" seems like a good idea. Plus the governments 30% rebate for the cost of green power is a big incentive.
I am not sure what scale architectural models are build to, but 1:200 does not equate to inches very well. 1/48th works out to 1/4-inch equals 1 foot, and 1/72 equal 1/6 to one foot. The scale should be divisible by 12 (i.e. 1/144th scale would be 144 divided by 12 which gives 1/12 of an inch equals one foot). You could always go with 1/192 (1/16 of an inch equals one foot), which is a popular scale for ship models. Another choice would be use metric where 1/200th would work fine.
Many years ago Sterling had a wooden kit of the USS Missouri in a fairly large scale. Unfortunately Estes bought the assets of Sterling and the Missouri is not currently available. I hate to think what one might run on EBay. About the only option today would be a plastic model and about the biggest is 1/350th. Tamiya has a good kit, but if you want wood you will pretty much be out of luck.
We are concerned with the double face cardboard because of its availability. Occasionally building materials such as sheetrock mud, lacquer, and cement will splash onto the sheets of cardboard and dry while in the trash. Most substances will come off with a simple brush of the hand or with a stiff broom. You can remove more stubborn areas with a square nosed shovel, inverted so the underside of the scoop is up. This will prevent the shovel from digging into the corrugation.
Let's start with what I think is about the most important thing "protect that attitude". I know that isn't where most people start however without it cleaning that scoot will always be a headache. How do I protect it? First, get a motorcycle lift. They're not all that expensive these days. I got mine at Harbor Freight for about $300.00 and I can't tell you how much easier it is to clean any bike. You can get them much cheaper even as little as $60.00 or so. But my point is to get that baby up in the air so you don't have to hurt your knees, back or anything else. Nobody looks forward to kneeling or bending over for hours at a time. Do you think that might be a reason your friend's bikes may not be so clean?
