I am on the finishing straight with the Cab (No Crisp, not that kind of Cab) and will be showing pictures next week after 'club' night They will be seeing it first and may throw it out (and so may you lot, who knows) So I have been kinda wondering what next and our Steve insisted I got back in here and 'did it' So this afternoon whilst waiting for the postie with the new sill for the Midget I got out some plastic and began to play In the words now banned from safe family conversation nowadays "can you see what it is yet?" Er howabout now? Any guesses yet? How about now? No? Ah YOU think you have it... Is it this? I love my little Expo drill, Mrs P bought it for me many years ago Still spins nicely even if slightly off its bearings these days, I should look into fixing it maybe new bearings needed However, for now Vary the speed by changing the transformer voltage, how primitive is that huh? You probably do know what's coming now when you see part two above Yes I am making another Nimbus Compressor stage, burner stage and the gubbins at the back that drives the power shaft gearing (Impeller I think) The 'fins' are the separate stages in the impeller tube that allow it to bolt together, last time round I wrapped thin plastic rod round it but this time I am trying to get a bit closer to the proper job's look The fins will be tidied a lot more before the casting stage (Yes Rodders) begins Gubbinses a'plenty adorn the casing, this might be fuelling valves going on here, there's a pair of them and they have fine piping coming off them in real life Added gubbinnery Oh look, an Airfix kit You can't get these in Woolies any more, but this one came free as there weren't any windows in the bubble pack A worry huh This one has been used to mould the nose with bulgy windows in it a bit like this This is only a test of the moulded windows, they are really inside a latex mould that I have been thinking of using to mould in clear resin As you can see I had lots of Wopse specific bits of etch left from making the Scout so it seems a shame to waste 'em So if you guessed Wasp have a gold star have one if you guessed or Too! At the Sutton Modellers do I asked Mr Freightdog (it was you wasn't it Colin ? ) how the Wasp is coming along Still problems with the casting company so I suggested selling the engines alone I would have had a few to be going on with So here we are Wasp Gannets Buccaneers and down the line A Frog Sea Venom
