You know, if you mounted those gears of a firm but soft foam, they would have moved linearly, kind of like a "Harmonic Balancer", and you could probably get it to spin, with the gears taking up the slop. Just a thought.
Well the first half of the Airbox is now complete and the second one as 3/4's finished, all that is left to do is the throttle bodies and mounting it and then it is complete... (I am more interested in finishing the model than going to work right now....)
Finally the last photo is now on and I have also added 3 short videos clips to get the feel and size of the model. (not great quality, as it was filmed at 10pm last night.) The table that the model is sitting on is a 1 by 1 meter table.
Wow...Whoa...I can't even think...This is just AMAZING!
And not just the build, either. All the work that went into this, from design to wiring to paper shows such an advanced level of craftsmanship.
Honestly, this is both inspiring and humbling. I don't think I could achieve something like this.
If I had to look back in 2009 when I started building models and then designing them and this was my first, I know it would have failed, by just building and designing models and going from very easy which is always the best starting point to going a bit harder and so on, I have worked my way up to what is most likely going to be model to match for some time.
My first model that I tried to build did not get very far as it was quite a hard one, and today I have not looked at building it.
What one must remember with this art / hobby is that you are the one that sets the level on how intense or easy you feel in building the model at hand, but one must also challenge themself at the same time.
I have been asked what is my next master model going to be? and the best answer that I can come up with is i have no idea, I have about 3-4 in mind but which ????
