Okay, that worked. Issue Five done and dusted. Photo coming. Lost in the ether somewhere.

Stuffed if I know why the ether is holding up a photo taken on my iPad and sent to my email addy. Anyway, this is what I'll be doing tomorrow.

In the middle is the propeller and the electric engine fitted. The two sides you see are held there by magnets, so when the whole engine is done, the sides can be taken away and you can see all the engine detail.

On the right, is the engine block so far with some bits added, but there is much more to go on there.

On the left is the almost complete super charger which attaches to the engine block. Just wating for the glue to really dry before fitting the last bit to that.

Then, I'll have to wait for abour three weeks for Issues 8,9,10 and 11 to arrive.

So, not even halfway through Issue 8.

To give you some idea of scale:

That small thing above the five cent piece is made up of FOUR individual parts glued together. I use those magnifying glasses (which have a range of many lenses) to see what I am doing. Very annoying, but that is what it is about.
