Rick, It's all scratch built.
Seeing that a few are interested in this winch I'll draw up a plan and post it here.
It's super easy. The cable is nylon twine/line. It was bright white, I stained it dark grey, then a light stain of light brown(rust) and then a rub of a #2 pencil to give it the steel look. The cable end is a piece of plastruct rod. Flatten the end both sides, drill and carve out the "eye" with a #11 xacto and drill the other end to accept the line, a bit of glue and some grey paint to make it look galvinised.
