Now the bench is empty I may be looking at a possible re-start on the Abeille project, another major catastrophe has hit the build, my 86 yo dad was helping tidy up the workshop and thought he could just re-locate the superstructure not realizing is was several layers stacked on each other but not yet glued so all of the previous work was smashed way beyond repair :( I wasn't too concerned untill I saw all those angled windows in pieces on the ground................ ah well here we go again.
And yes this is a bit of a bump so I can find it again when it comes time to start posting photos again.

So sorry to hear of this latest set-back. I've been following your work and have been amazed at the quality.
 
Your poor old Dad must be feeling awful...
 
From what I've seen, on Mayhem, you have the ability to bounce back, as I'm sure you will.  :-))
 
 
Regards,
 
Ray.

Too right they breed them tough in Tassie.  O0 O0 :-)) :-))

They have to be because of those Tasmanian Devils roaming at large. <*< <*<

Those Devils are dangerous, 6ft tall huge teeth, glowing red eyes, still not game to let the dog roam at night :)
I wasn't too worried as all the files are saved on the computer but trying to explain that to a stressed 87yo isn't easy, ended up sitting him down with a nice cup of tea to calm his nerves.

oh and I'm only Tasmanian by marriage I'm actually a closet West Australian but they haven't noticed yet.

So in reality you are a Sand gropher, AKA westerner not an easterner, as my wife's western Rellies, mainly around the Pilbara, would say.

I understand completely, i've had a few set backs and many obstacles.

It does require extra determination and enthusiasm to get back on that horse. I had to be gentle with myself

You were doing such a cracking job, ill be glad to see get back onto it

All the best

Hello Phill


After seeing a Damen on  your workbench - so nice result -  but with the Abeille hull on shelf I'm happy to see your project back on track.
