  1. I can guarantee you Patrick, it doesn't feel that way up here! On top of that: The roads will be like ice rinks tomorrow ...
  2. This was at 14:30 after one hour of snow fall The bamboo would normally be hardly visible

    Impressive work, Sam. Although, I think those NIssans are not very practical on the road ...

  8. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    3' or 3" ... 3' is quite an accomplishement, you'd probably be parking at the other side of the street on the law of someone, 3" is narrow mindedness

    Thanks, when I get my wood I'll let you know. She starts to look awefully good Mike

    Found me a drawing, can you tell me if it is close enough ... What I've seen for Sopwith Camle planes, this would be a fitting prop ... well, actually half a prop sizes based on your given length total lengt 17cm max width 1.4cm (I can bring it down to your 1cm) max thickness 0.94cm seven layers : each layer 0.13xxcm I'll have to order some wood, as the stock I've got left doesn't meet the requirements

    Nah ... a gift would be more appropriate. Maybe just postage. It's a hobby, what's a bit of distraction time and wood between modeller mates
  12. Sopwith Camel 1/16 by Mike Dowling

    I'll have a go at it, and shall let you know if I get as frustrated as you

    Mike, Can you give me the measurements of the prop. The smallest ones I can find are 9" or 10" which is a wee bit to large to have it twirl around ... but I wouldn't mind giving it a try meself ... (a good excuse to do something else then twisting, folding, and glueing PE) Love the look of your model ...
