    Hi Guys,
    I have been thinking about this and how to get over MY design problems.
    Firstly the prop shaft.
    To fit a stronger shaft I will have to make a completely new back end as trying to get it apart will end up with a lot of broken bits.

    To fit a stronger rudder push rod I will have to somehow drill out the rod guides and the push rod will have to be joined as I do not have a long enough piece of rod.
    Secondly :-
    I have not got enough material left to remake it at the moment. Also with all of the experiments that I have done with displacement and counter balance would make it difficult to keep it afloat.
    I would have to make a larger flotation tank and rebalance it.
    So in short it will be a very big job to get this working properly.
    After much though I have come up with two ideas:-
    (A) I could fit a light in it and use it as a desk light.
    (B) I could fit a lot of RGB LED's and control them with an Arduino PCB and have it light up and change colour as a static display.
    I have not decided yet.
    More thought required!

    Hi Martin,

    I like the Static Display idea.
    Maybe placed on a stand.
    Shaped like a fish bone!
    With RGB LED's controlled by an Ardrino PCB!

    Hi Guys,
    I am very sorry to disappoint you guys after all this time, but due to MY design errors this will now be just another static dust collector.
    The prop shaft is to flexible and the rudder pushrod is not strong enough and tends to bend so not strong enough do the job.
    It's not worth me installing my last bits of rc equipment in it, it would just be a waste.

    Sorry again.

    Come on Martin YOU CAN DO IT! (all night long if necessary) you've gone too far to turn back now! remember the little engine that could, - just think what would have happened if Sir Ed Hillary had got to within 20 ft of the summit and said "bugger this for a game of soldiers, it's too dammed cold up here Tensing, let's go back down and get a flat white" !!!??

    Hi Guys
    It's me again you're very own site nutcase!
    Fins and tail fin complete with prop and prop shaft.
    I have sandwiched some thin transparent plastic sheet in between the bones to aid water flow and so that the rudder would work.

    Hi Guys,
    Knocked up a temporary jig to form more bone shapes.
    Using the cut spoon piece for the spine centre, and some thin plastic red tube for the push rod guide.
    A lot of sanding required!
    The photos show the jig and the bone before and after sanding.

    Hi Marky,
    I don't use any heat at all.
    All I do is use layers of the plastic and glue, like a sandwich then squeeze them in the jig and allow to dry.
    When dry they hold there shape.
    And shaping the the bones around the head I was just a case of laying the plastic on some hard foam and rolling it with a piece of wood dowling.

    Hi Guys,
    Prop shaft fitted.
    I found an old long plastic spoon in the shed and decided to cut it up to use for the spine.
    I am beginning to wish that I hadn't started making this, it is a real pain and things are not working out as I had planned.
    Perhaps is the medication wearing off LOL!

    You think you've got problems Martin ! should have seen how many dozen mods I had to do to this plane (built almost from the one Photo scaled up plus 5 others,) - only one prototype ever made in late 40s by a tiny US company.
    Even had to make my own vacuum forming machine/device and heater just to make the canopy. Don't even know if it will fly. Has flaps and electric retracts which were a nightmare to fit, - modified the wing almost to the point of throwing it in the bin, but it worked out in the end. Sure you will manage to get past your problem with your imagination and skills. Perhaps some 'green' medicine might broaden your perceptual horizons???๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ก

    Hi John,

    Especially the heater!
    A vacform box is something I've been considering.
    Got enough powerful vacuum cleaners kicking about in the cellar๐Ÿ˜
    What do you use to make the forms?
    Put it in a Build Blog or even perhaps 'General Resources'.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It's not patience that is required it's the skill to to try and keep your fingers out of the way LOL!
    And to remember where the first aid box is.

    Gets more intriguing by the day ๐Ÿค”. Looks like angler fish Jaws, certainly would have to be sure to keep it well fed, preferably not on fingers.
    Cheers Colin ๐Ÿ˜
