This is a concept design for the "High-Hide" from The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
(I'll add photos from the movie version later.)
The winch/tow cable first leads over a tall object(In this case, the boat mast.), then goes down to hook on to a Technic liftarm, and is connected in a way where it won't slide off. This was harder than you'd think to make, I had to find a way to make everything work perfectly. Sadly, I failed, as it does not work perfectly. Which is why this is just a concept.
Minifigures can fit perfectly inside.
I quote and Eddie Carr and Ian Malcolm:
"It's a high-hide... A high-hide, you know, you go up, and you hide. High. It lets the researchers go up to the treetops, and puts them out of harm's way."
"Actually, you're putting them at a convenient biting-height."
Here's an accurate shot of how the winch works to pull the High-Hide up a tree or something of the sort.
And here's whta I had to do to make sure the car didn't roll forward. This really makes me angry, because it doesn't work to well.
(My Mercedes-Benz ML-320's camouflage isn't really developed yet. )
I'll be posting more pictures of different versions soon.
