    Okay, I made the carriage now, so I can demolish things true "Jörg Sprave-style"! <br><br>The wheels are tiny and may not be the best alternative, but it sure works for me. I have to add some kind of counterweight at the rear as it falls forward if I dont hold it down. Two heavy books did that work for the photo-session. The carriage is totally solid and the shooting angle is freely adjustable. What more could I probably wish for? Cant wait to test it out for real later on. <br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/img_2115.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/img_2116.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/img_2117.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Thats it, hope you´ll like it! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Great idea. You could add a piece of metal or lead for the counter weight instead of that book <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Books are great. Then I have something to read when Im out at the battlefield <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br>Just kidding! Maybe I could make a pocket of some sort that one can fill with sand, water or something. That way it would be easier to carry it... (Not that its very heavy, just for the fun of inventing <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"> )
