    That is a golden opportunity for someone!
    I have all the equipment and shed room to finish that project.
    However, at my age I can only dream of my past days of pulling on the
    sheets and hiking overboard. How I miss it!

    Pete,
    I don't know the exact design scoops you are looking for but I have cut up plastic spoons
    to make scoops for projects.
    Perhaps that would work for you.

    Congratulations on getting the rigging nicely done.
    I love rigging but at about the half way point all my fingers
    turn into ten thumbs! My hands also grow into the
    size of a bears paw. LOL!

    Ron, I think you have enough whirligigs to slow down the
    wind in your area!
    There are housing projects growing around here everywhere. The growing population the world over is demanding housing.
    I live out in the country with a horse farm behind me and a cattle farm across the road. I am afraid housing industry will be soon knocking on my door.

    I believe we all have to think a little outside the box when building stuff.

    Hi Mike,
    Well the weather here has warmed some. Now 43 F with 20 MPH winds. Rain coming, which
    is better than snow. I will be indoors at the workshop today.

    Look for someone in your area who builds aquariums. Get suggestions from them and build one. Turn it upside down and place it over the model.
    I would prefer one with a wood frame. Use the same method.
