I added three coats of thinned WBPU through a Preval sprayer to complete the Shrimp rubber conversion.

Here are a left and right view of the Shrimp in the winding stooge, three pics of the stooge from different angles, and an image of the winder.

The stooge was made from a bracket, scavenged from a folding sawhorse kit and a 3/8" floor flange. The flange was mounted to the bracket with some machine screws and nuts. Some outdoor carpet was contact cemented to the bracket to protect the model from the bare metal. A piece of foam rubber was added to cushion the bottom of the fuselage where it sits in the stooge.

The pin is made from piano/music wire with a length of aluminum tubing soldered to it. The pin without the tubing wasn't a snug enough fit for the aluminum rubber peg. The rubber peg is a short length of 5/32" OD(4mm) aluminum tubing.

My winder is an old Stanley 03-222A Hy-Lo Hand Drill with a wire hook mounted in the jaws. The spring chuck was modified to keep the wire hook from pulling out.
