The past week has seen Pepe and I walking at Debdale Park where we saw this nice wood carving in the orchard behind the children's play area.
Nice isn't it?
Trouble is there's a maggot in the other side!.
Then another day we went to Etherow where we fed the birds and managed to take a short video of it.
And of course there's no show without Punch is there.
Where's mine then Dad.
Got a good bargain at the club auction on Wednesday night, A fiver for these two drawer units for my workshop, and they were full of useful stuff as well!, can't be bad.
Then it was a bit more modelling, too cold to stay out long these days.
Fitted the front control centre in the wheelhouse, had to take that top section off to get it in, as it was a tight fit.
Rear control unit and bench seat made up and placed in
The central unit was made up but the arms looked as though they wouldn't have much support so made some arm rests out of brass rod and put a grove underneth the arm rests for them to sit on.
The seat were next with a trial to see what would look best for buttons in the seating, decided that bottom right set was best, that was done with a small drill and then nicked with a knife to make the starred pattern.
Coming on now, will look better when painted I'm sure.
Whilst the seating was hardening off, made a start on the gantry crane.
First parts of the power block made up, notice the highlighted section I did on the initial read of the instructions!, saves missing it at a later stage when you get the bit between your teeth on the build.
First arm started, making sure things were square as I go along.
First arm done, with holes drilled out
Second arm sections cut out and ready for making up.
First and second sections made up and fitted together, need to add piping yet.
That's all for now folk's
