But this one will take you straight to mactin's various U Boat threads Peewit.
I just searched 'clockwork' in the 'Forum' tab.😉
He must have run out of tins, haven't seem him around since May last year.
He used tins of all kinds, biscuits, drinks, etc etc, drives and gearboxes from old clocks, frames & chassis from old gas fires😮 What ever was being chucked out or cheap at flea markets! A very clever and talented guy.
Shame he's disappeared🤔 Hope he's OK🤔
Cheers, Doug 😎
PS "Peewit, a fictional dwarf in the Belgian comics series Johan and Peewit.
Peewit: a blond, gluttonous dwarf, he lived in the forest neighbouring the King's castle playing practical jokes on the people and stealing meats and apples before being hired as the court jester. He agreed, provided that he was not obliged to wear the jester's outfit, which he felt made him look like a "fool" (which is another term for jester). His name is pronounced "Peewee".
Contrary to what he believes himself, Peewit is a terrible musician, though, unlike Cacofonix from the Asterix series, the other inhabitants of the castle cannot bring themselves to tell him how bad he is — though the King did once make a show of removing earplugs in Peewit's presence. His "music" has also been known to cause rain.
Peewit is easily upset, especially when Johan volunteers him to go on another adventure but, being cunning and agile, he is quite capable of escaping from a tight corner and putting up a fight. When outwitting his enemies, he screams out his cry of triumph: "Peeeewiiiiit". In the Smurfs cartoon series, rather than being a random dwarf, he is the King's nephew, as he states in the episode The Sorcery Of Maltrochu, and is portrayed as a kid, younger than Johan."
Or does your user name come from the Northern Lapwing or Magpie Lark?😉
