|Sergeant Tetley oversees the construction of the devilish new engine and flywheel!|
I've been threatening it for a while and now it has begun! I've sent most of today building the engine and flywheel that will be the main features of my new Walking Landship, the HMSW Gargantua.
|The boiler and stack start to take shape, and a rough concept for the flywheel is inserted for reference.|
|The flywheel is constructed from plastic board and washers. This was a serious pain to do - and I haven't even started on the rivets yet!|
|Close-ups as the details start to go on the engine. A furnace is added to the front.|
|Viewed from above. The deck (black board at the moment but soon to be planking) is 30cm long. A neck and head will be added later.|
All the best!
