Geoff, youíre more than welcome to post pictures of your Invincible on this thread. Love to see the work done since November.


Here is my latest update and last for the next four weeks as Iíll be busy defending the world!
Iíve been concentrating on the deck edging and hull plating which has been made from 0.25mm plastic card and 1mm for the torpedo net shelves. Iíve drilled out the port holes using a 4mm drill bit. The deck edge is completed with 0.75mm square plastic strut.

Its looking good - I'll need to download my pictures to my PC and then I can post. I'll probably do a different thread as otherwise at may all become confusing but thank you for the offer.


I have spent the last few weekends building hollow gun turrets - awkward shapes in deed - together with the gunfire mechanisms - also awkward as I can no longer find the same thermistors!


Cheers

I meant to add I've had other discussions on how to build the tripods and think I would build mine in brass soldered together at the top with the bottom all in a jig to hold it correctly. The difference being I plan to cut the legs to each deck length but hold it all together with a inner brass tube thus the legs will all be correct but I can slide the legs into component parts then run the inner tube through them to hold it all together - hope that makes sense!


Cheers

Crystal clear Geoff. No idea I have seen or thought about seems easy, so the least complex one is as good as any.
