I built a "G" scale turntable out of one of these. They are very robust to say the least. It was weatherised with a Tupperware bowl and grommets for the turntable shaft and the handcrank.

This "Lazy Susan" is the key to the whole process. Do you have any ideas on that?

Heck, the worst that could happen... Don't know how weather proof that is but shoot why not? Another idea a disc brake rotor and bearings off a kia or similar throw away car? A small tire rim with an axle welded to a flange*

I want to keep it as close to the roof as possible for, you know, drafting other busses on the straights.
