I spent great moment reading this thread from the first post, thanks to share, and congratulations !
Nice workshop and tooling too, and first class skills to master each step.

That's coming along really well Phil. The boards add a real dimension and look superb . Congrats on the win - that cup looks like it's seen a few recipients over the years.

Hi Ramon

The smaller cup was for best model in the "general engineering" class.

That big cup is for best "unfinished model", I have won it twice now but you are not allowed to win it on consecutive years.
The worry is that at my speed of output I could possibly be in danger of winning it a few more times before this one is finished  :old:

I have had a few traumatic events to deal with lately, so I am afraid workshop activities have been even less than my usual slow pace.  :(
Maybe when I retire in 4 years time things will get done quicker, I am not betting on it though.
