    Hi Guys,
    Head section now complete, I have put different textures on the bones.
    This little project is trickier to make than I thought it would be.
    Things are not going according to plan it seems to be one problem after another, I should of given this a lot more thought.
    Still I must carry on regardless.

    Looking really great Martin - if you put half the effort into a EeZeBilt it would be brilliant ..........
    This is an extremely complex build you are undertaking - what pills did you say you were on ? - should try some for inspiration perhaps..........

    The plan is. To have this as a two channel surface runner.
    As I go along You will see how difficult it might be to ballast it correctly.
    It will be a bit of a challenge to get it right, I may even have to make a flotation tank to fit in the head section.
    Time will tell!

    Hi Guys,
    I did say it is a wacky project and it's Taking shape now, so if you thought the Steampunk Pike was mad, well this is darn right crazy.
    Eye sockets made and fitted.
    Some Bone platelets made with different textures on them.

    You can now see why I am on medication LOL!

    Take it you are going to use a flotation device Martin - as my son once said after we had eaten a Red Roman (fish not a Communist) - the bare bones still on the serving dish - "That fish wont be able swim now will it daddy..........."
    You really do have a very creative mind - pills or not......
    Always a pleasure to watch

    Hi Guys,
    Just a little update.
    This is how I made some bones for Evolution.
    Using my recycled plastic I glued little off cuts on top of each other allowing it to dry.
    Then I use a smaller electric drill with a small burr bit and let it do it own thing.
    You can see in the photos the effects it creates.
    This is less model making more like sculpting.
    It is not going according to plan but it is different and I think it will work out alright in the end if I up my medication.

    Hi Guys,

    Due to the fact that I have totally run out of fresh air glue I have had to make a rough framework to have something to glue to.
    As this is mainly a model boat web site I have stuck to a water based project.
    All the plans for this are still swimming around in my head.
    Now you can see why I blame the medication LOL!
    I did say that it is a wacky project as you will see as I go along.

    This project is made using the usual ingredients, I don't think that I need to list them as you probably already know what they are.
    This part almost gives it away but hopefully it might still keep you guessing a little longer.

    Hi Guys,
    I decided that I would do a sort of a build log on this wacky project.
    This is another crazy idea that has been buzzing around in my head for a while.
    I have not used any measurements,drawings,plans,or photos.
    A Totally experiment !
    It should work if I get it right.
    This will be a 2 channel surface runner when completed.
    I will not log every stage as it will get extremely boring, but if you have any questions then I will answer them as I go along.

    EVOLUTION is built around a drinking water bottle.
    The first job was to attach some magnets so that the front will detach from the main body.
    The water bottle is just to stop the electrical stuff from getting wet.
    In this log the photos will tell the story.(hopefully)

    Martin.

    Could it be a whiskey and soda. Or maybe Gin and tonic.
    Cheers Colin.

    I decided to use the water bottle after doing some experiments for a watertight compartment for a submarine as it has a really good seal to prevent the water from getting in.
    I am still tinkering with that idea for a WTC but it is throwing up a few problems that need sorting out.

    Looks like a shark tooth - modelling a megladon then?????
    Lots of real Great Whites around here - running in the sea you have to be sure your boat does not look like a seal.... Southern Right whales also a hazard as they come to calve here from June to November usually.

    You could always build a new workshop from recycled stuff.
    My wife's new garden room was an old scrap shed for firewood we found on freecycle, stripped and rebuilt using more scrap wood, a coat of new paint, some old greenhouse glass turned into windows. Now I have peace and quiet in my own workshop.
    Cheers Colin.

    Thanks guys, I only did the woodwork, wife did the rest.
    I will tell her you liked her garden/craft room.
    As we both enjoy modelling it made sense for her to have a craft room herself.
    Just needs the electrician to connect the sockets and lights next week.
    I've already run the cable from my garage to it.
    Anyway thanks again for the kind comments.
    Cheers Colin and Caroline.
