It what I'm going for mate 👍

Hopefully he will have the sense to keep his mouth shut🤣

Maybe you could fashion a wee-little face mask like the motor cycle riders wear, complete with a skull's head grin.

Morning all

Its been a while, work and life getting in the way as usual so its time for an update;

 

Time to start with the fine details.....started applying different sizes of aluminium squares to the tail crossmember

and completed....nice rough build look

48879177263_866f694c96_b.jpgIMG_20191008_154224174 by Tim Dyson, on Flickr

 

now I must admit being a little concerned about engines for the dirty ….but on a visit to a car boot I stumbled across this

 

48879177878_5112496abb_b.jpgIMG_20191010_113822898 by Tim Dyson, on Flickr

 

which contained this

 

48879712166_b99877f879_b.jpgIMG_20191010_113843981 by Tim Dyson, on Flickr

 

which looks like this when test fitted

 

48879712666_ef8d42b620_b.jpgIMG_20191010_114150744 by Tim Dyson, on Flickr

 

which looks pretty good to me,not bad for a fiver....a quick search on King Kit and a suitable engine for the other side is winging its way to me as we speak.

 

Next up those nose cannons

 

48879906877_ae8826e009_b.jpgIMG_20191010_114135289 by Tim Dyson, on Flickr

 

aluminium and copper tube from B+Q

so heres where we stand

Thank you mate I think adding the fine details is going to be quite time consuming ...bit by bit😳

I'm sure - fitting parts together that are not meant to be stuck together takes bit more effort and time. But it's worth it, that tail looks awesome for example. And even better with some paint on I would imagine.

Thank you I'm very pleased with how the tail has turned out let's hope the paint enhances the effect even more 👍

You're having a ball doing this one, and we're having a ball watching. A magnificent show of improvisation and scratching.

They were a brilliant education. Actually they were fabulously illustrated. I used to wonder who the artists were.

There must be an interesting story or two there. Deadlines, quantity, quality etc.
