    Peter, great job!

    Phil, I use the methods you mentioned to form cones. It was only difficult with the rocket because the cone pieces were only a few millimeters long.

    Ok,
    see who can guess what manufacturer the original models were from?
    No prizes, sorry.

    Very kewl!!! Love the character support. I've got to try one of these truly tiny models but I'm going to have to improve my skills first. I sure do love them, though.

    Cheers --- Larry

    That's a handsome flyer John!
    How do you guys get models that aren't released yet?
    Do you do test-builds for people?... Friends with the designers?... Blessed?... Found it on a street corner?... Found it in a picnic basket?... It just flew by?

    Beautiful job, John...as usual!:)

    If I might ask, where will this model be released, by whom, and ...perhaps the more important question...when?

    Thanks for posting a photo of this great build!

    Cheers!
    Jim

    This is a part of a larger model but someone suggested I post this in the tiny challenge. I also wanted to make a cleaner build before posting it but Oh well. These things never are perfect.
    This is a pair of 225 horsepower Evenrude Ram outboard motors. The one on the left is a more recent build of it. The one on the right is the first build.
    The newer one pivots on its motor mount. I almost got the propellor to turn as well.
    I don't see how you folks can handle much of the tiny stuff. I hate when I drop a part like the propellor on the floor and then have to find it.

    Outboards

    They look great Lizzie

    I spend a good deal of time going round the floor with a torch looks like I am pretending to be in CSI it works though.
