  2. Zaku Head Exceed.

    And there's more! I get too much thinking time as we drive around delivering the booze! Okay, Zaku head, up on supports of some rustic kind. On top is an old radar/satellite dish as a rain collector. The head is now a water tank. Underneath chains hang down to operate shower heads. In the background underneath are shadowy adult figures washing clothes etc (no need for detail). In the foreground are Japanese anime kid figures (the ones with spiky hair & too large mouths) romping around in the water showers like kids used to around fire hydrants in the USA. Now this one probably wouldn't work as I don't know if you could get the figures, But I think it would make a great illustration. The follow on idea to that one, similar jerry rigged mounting for the head, but there is now a bunker dug out under it. Satellite dishes are wired into the head and computer screens etc glow in the bunker. Maybe lights in the head too? This time the figures are rebels in bits of military kit/jeans etc using the head systems to hack into their opposition.

  5. Spot of the day!

    In Sheffield today, the bodyshell of a Lancia Fulvia on a trailer. I always liked that car. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiqm_Sqg9rVAhWL0RoKHbdKBW0QjRwIBw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.classicandperformancecar.com%2Flancia%2Ffulvia&psig=AFQjCNGRWzW6TEHvRvBhc6Aa3wQDM2raEA&ust=1502913530732625

    Plus various sized boxes on the walls with cables etc down into the floor or across to your structure. Just have a look at Thunderbird 2's Hangar and what goes on in the background. Well ahead of it's time that stuff. A doorway will also visually set the scale.

    I think I'll stick with the one I have. Captain Underpants could be my alter ego though, Rather like Dom deLuise in the Cannonball Run (1981) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082136/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_87 At any time, I could become, HIM!
  9. Spot of the day!

    Very nice N reg BMW 2002 in maroon near to Stanstead earlier this afternoon. Nice red Porsche 944 on the South side of Lincoln this evening. And, on the same junction, someones back box/silencer. I mean, how can you not notice it's fallen off? It was a large one too, BMW, Mercedes etc size.

    I think you need a week away* to think about what you just said. Captain underpants. * Ya'll hurry back now!

  12. Pet hates.

    Here's one that was on the radio today, Something I'd never thought of & am guilty of. It winds up the person who sent it in at least. Telephone numbers, 0800 etc. How to pronounce that first number? How many of us say Oh eight hundred? It should of course be zero eight hundred.

    Or....For some reason this one came to me as I did the washing up! A training head. Think three axis flight simulator. Platform on hydraulics, ladders, screen, etc etc? As far as I know this one hasn't been done before, whereas the rusty robot thing has, but still appeals.

    It's a fair cop, but society is to blame. I wanna see my brief, Copper!
