At least he'll save the cost of the radio gear, he can get inside and steer it himself!  :-)

Well yes....giant in every respect :o , & and in assembly of pre-cut parts on a large scale [football filed]

.......but what if Harold cannot find the next part to glue with the corresponding laser cut item Number 199.62.036a?  %%  .....time for a Kit-Kat?


There is also something mysterious about the garage door shown from the outside......& the internals of the workshop?????????  >>:-(

The front garage door is a 1/3 split door opening outwards next to the house, the 2/3 opens outwards to the neighbours, at the rear there is a single standard door with a glass pane at the top on the house side cutting across the corner, in the right hand corner there a two large blue door cabinets and a white door cabinet on the back wall the ceiling height appears to match, the workshop might be extremely long and not a standard car length.


And where he sits on it, there is a door shown so it is probably an extension built on at the rear.

Amazing build,I have been following on Facebook.I can't help but think the 3D computer model took longer than the actual model so far.I can't blame him.would you fancy cutting all those parts out on a scroll saw? %%

The cost of the raw material as well, obviously some nested to get the most from the material, and dovetail joints to make up the frame, at first I thought it was laser cut.

If we think back to the Dragon Fly  :o  ......could the weight of this hull [if sheathed] be less than the calculated displacement?  {-)  ..... Derek
