  1. I believe it came from Squires Tools who had a stand at Telford; Squires Model & Craft Tools, BOGNOR REGIS. Tel: 01243-587009 Or Expo site; https://www.expotools.com. Hope you find one @Jfgred1 Gary
  2. @Ex-FAAWAFU, @Pete in Lincs, @Terry1954 Thank you for your kind comments gentlemen, you never know, I may finish one of them soon...
  3. Continuing on from the previous post it is now time to consider how to best represent the gubbins inside the camera ball, the only pic I have is this; I have given this some considerable thought and I came to the conclusion that I cannot make out anything in there with any certainty of it's shape,size or purpose so the next best approach was to do a general representation, but how?

  11. Nice paint job, looking very slippery Pete, really looking the part now.
