    Colonial Viper Car (PaperJams entry 2021)

    I'd make it a single front wheel. 3 wheel vehicles with the weight on the two wheeled end handle excellently. This guy could have made his Viper car with a single front wheel and it would have handled excellent, as the weight is on the two wheeled end. Too bad he hadn't passed it by us, I...

    This idea has some serious holes in it.

    These are usually done and called joining strips. They have the great advantage of keeping the pieces to be joined on the same plane, and you end up with a great mating of surfaces. I usually cut out pieces to fit the exact shape I need. This is quick and clean though and great for cylinders...

    To be somewhat Enterprising....

    I always liked the Voyager designed. It seemed like a stout ship. I don't see the speculum in there, of course, with what you do, you see a lot more different speculums than I could ever imagine existed, so I'll take your word for it. :) The series itself was also one of the best of the whole...

    Dune - Atreides Ornithopter 1:48

    I just saw the movie in a IMAX Laser Theater. When the ornithopter was gliding, well, let's just say they really should have contacted a better aerodynamics specialists. I liked the movie, and the ornithopter, the vibration at low altitude would attract worms for miles, but that was how it was...

    M4A4 Sherman VC Firefly, Halinski 1:25

    Tube amps are awesome. Audio Tube amps have around a 1% THD (Total Harmonic Distortion), which, compared to modern electronics which are at around .001% seems ridiculous, but they have far less total "non harmonic distortion" than modern electronics, which is why quality tube amps just sound...

    M4A4 Sherman VC Firefly, Halinski 1:25

    It's amazing that they would put a tube radio in the turret!! I have a collection old vintage tube amplifiers, (these suckers are quite valuable, and sound incredible), it's amazing that the sockets could take the pounding. The U.S.Army radios were built quite robust back then, but geez, I...

    1/12 Apollo Command Module

    I built the Honda model below. When I purchased it it was $175.00 bucks. The chains is individual links. You built everything. I had it for years, and eventually gave it to a friend (funny, I can't even remember his name now) but that model, when available, costs $870 and worth every penny...

    Compound table for my Dremel drill press table

    If you could find a little rotary table, you would be shocked at the things you could make. I do have a small machine shop. I have Indexing heads, milling Heads, all kinds of attachments, even broaching. I've made bicycle crank sets from scratch with a rotary table. If the Dremel head can...

    "Red Skull" sculpt, polymer clay

    Playing around with some clay, I accidentally stumbled, fumbled my way into a face that was a spitting image or Peter Lorrie, the creepy guy in "To Kill a Mockingbird". I gave it to my sister. She said it looked so much like him it creeped her out, but she wanted it. :)
