What I have

BTW here is what I have done so far. right now I am working on drawing individual peices. the part thats hard is the activation area as i cannot see whats under the diamond shaped ratchets to see how they are held in place and how the main one moves the ratchet bar so that the next bomb series can be released if that makes sense.

Joe,

Those Cooper Bomb renderings are truly first class. Any idea what software was used? My guess is 3d studio.
