I think we all want to know the same question; how the hell did that happen? Looks like it was in a building collapse to me, explains the burnt/twisted arm and snapped post ... just my guess though.

Ya, I think that the wreckage appears to be part of an insurance claim in a building fire... or a bad run in with the SPFX guys :blink:

Aw; it looks like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang did before Dick Van Dyke repaired it.

I reckon you should fix it up and you'll end up with the best rig in the world!

Looks like a bunch of kit I saw outside Otto's - about 100 sq feet of burnt offerings from the camera department, including a steadicam. It was ugly.
