Just angle lines from the left hand corner of that plate. Stuffed if I know what use they are. That green thing really is just a protective cutting/work layer which protects the surface of the table. I can use a scalpal on that to cut a part and if the cut goes into the green bit, it 'self heals,' or so the blurb goes.

Nice! I built a model plane back when i was 10-11. Forget how much exactly I did and how much Dad did. Think I did it mostly myself.

Now I would love a drone!

Model is 510 mm long, 135 mm high and has wing span of 620 mm. Made of diecast metal, plastic for fine details, and steel screws (very small ones.)

you must be a real short arse to fit in that

It'll 'fly' ~ don't you worry about that. At the moment, I am stuck on Issue Three.......need twenty hands with very small fingers. Will solve it tomorrow.....hopefully with a blu tack jig.

Have discovered this amongst my 'lots of crap.' Miniature vice. I will be in the shit for screwing it to the table (tomorrow) but, I want this problem solved. Reckon the little vice will be useful.

you should have put a sheet of plywood on top of your desk and then screwed it into that ... might have saved you a few nights on the couch
