    No, not dioramas, Doug. Dioramas use forced (false?) perspective and therefore must be viewed from one point. I made a diorama of Shelseley Walsh hillclimb to show slot car models. it was quite effective.
    This is all new for me and I am gathering engine models (I hope) from various hot rod sources. it will save me time on building these. I have a Merlin coming from Holland and a few others from contacts.
    First model in this series will be Hornet II, the wonderful gar Wood Speedster which had an all aluminium deck and fin added and its Packard replaced by a Rolls-Royce Meteor, which was just a Merlin sans blower. interestingly, the Rover Meteorite was a V8 version of the meteor and fitted in pairs in the Crash Tender.

    Probably John, exacerbated by too little exercise.
    I always was an 'economy of effort' man πŸ˜‰ and I get bored to death doing exercises for exercise's sake😀
    Didn't last a month at the fitness centre.
    Was bad for my blood pressure - all those pretty ladies in tight shorts 😲

    Re St Francis; sure he knew a thing or two, but apparently there are no sources to attribute that wisdom to him.
    Mine is one of the more popular variants of the Serenity Prayer, by the American Protestant theologian Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr in 1942.
    Being an agnostic I removed the God reference (was only arrogant enough to say atheist in my youthπŸ˜‰) Cheers, Doug 😎
    Sorry to hear the wheels fell off your chair 😱
    You just can't get quality these days can you!?😁

    The original Serenity Prayer-
    God, give us grace to accept with serenity
    the things that cannot be changed,
    courage to change the things
    which should be changed,
    and the wisdom to distinguish
    the one from the other.

    Living one day at a time,
    Enjoying one moment at a time,
    Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
    Taking, as Jesus did,
    This sinful world as it is,
    Not as I would have it,
    Trusting that You will make all things right,
    if I surrender to Your will,
    So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
    And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
    Amen.
    Full version of the original (ca. 1942)

    Amazing where a mundane topic like wire can lead!! (No pun intendedπŸ€”)
    Young at heart - slightly older in other places πŸ˜‰ Cheers Doug

    Understood MartinπŸ‘ Didn't realise you'd specified silicon wire.
    "Horses for courses"! For me it's t'other way roundπŸ˜‰
    All the wood finishing techniques are very satisfying when it works out!
    But that's the 'drudge' for me.πŸ€”
    I get more in the groove figuring out how to make electrical / electronic / mechanical gubbins's do what I want 😁
    Know what you mean about storage space, and I ain't got no garden shed so everything has to be squashed inside my little maisonette.
    Other collections from my travels are slowly getting squeezed out!
    For sailing I'm lucky to have the Ostpark lake within strolling distance but I'm too lazy to do that 😁 and the ships seem to be mysteriously getting heavier πŸ€”

    Look forward to seeing some of your set-pieces (dioramas?)
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Gents, I wanted the soft floppy silicon covered wires, so Halfords wouldn't do.
    Doug, the odd thing is that when I worked in Germany as a clay modeller, I was often given hard modelling jobs (not clay) which usually meant making complex little mechanisms. So much so that I became known as Mechanical Martin or just "Mekanist".
    Yet back home fitting all the worky bits to a model boat or even a slot car/model railway loco is the bit I hate! Don't know why, except maybe in the boats/slotcars/locos there is a certain way of doing it which I find a drudge and in the clay studios there was always an element of invention required. indeed I am the nominated inventor on a VW patent!
    But, I have run out of space for storage boxes and can only rarely get to a decent pond to run anything, so I am going over to static models only now. 1/24th scale models of mahogany hot rods (woodies), some in scenic set-pieces, maybe. But I'll finish the models I have on the go first.

    Why mess about!?
    One on each wheel and one for the power steering.
    Ventilated double disc brakes all round of course 😁
    Synchronised ESCs coupled to fore and aft cameras for TCAS (Traffic Collision Avoidance System).
    I think we could probably dispense with the Ground Proximity Warning though. On the other hand, when I think of Neville's Barrel Roll out of his scooter ...... πŸ˜πŸ˜‰
    BTW; As a friend of the Professor Hawking Foundation I received notification at the weekend that some of his personal effects will be auctioned soon, including some of his iconic wheelchairs.
    Proceeds go to studying the debilitating illness he suffered from.
    Anyone interested I'll dig out the link.
    All the best folks, Doug 😎
    More power to your wheels John; 'Full Ahead Both'πŸ‘

    Thanks Ken I have their 2018 catalogue and know them well. They are not too far from where I live and used to call in the shop. That was before I got stuck in this chair.πŸ€”πŸ‘
