1/2 a solid container.
The last 20 feet of a 40 foot container. Top right: the front leg of the running machine. Bottom right: the business end of the bomb loader. Bottom left: the V1’s butt. Top left: the flame cyclone tanks….
It ran. Nicely. Everything works, and the new motor is really powerful.s
Hovercraft testing from k0re and Vimeo.
Today I learned how to safety wire. Nothing like learning in a confined space. I even drilled the bolt heads….
The hovercraft really flies on the new motor.
This is mark controlling the little arm with an anthropomorphic controller. He moves his arm, the little arm moves to follow. “little” is relative.
I had to make mounts to support the gas tank, mounts for the finger screen and supplemental supports for the exhaust system, and a few other bits and installed them all.
Today nothing all that photogenic… I mounted the fuel tank on some jaunty spars I made and got the crap guard cut out and installed. Now for wiring up the motor and testing it…
More turning fun, more giant radial arm drill fun, more welding fun… Mr’s Satan’s hands…
At the top middle of the picture is a possum at the shop. It came up to me twice then skittered away after an squinty “Oh My!” look. I suppose it got a few feet away and thought “huh, why am I going this way? I thought I was going the other way.” Mark made it go away.
