    Hi Ross

    These are exceptional work. Makes our truck look positively primitive. I was so intrigued as to how he made a lot of these mechanical pieces. Just the technical problem of producing such intricate work. He must certainly have mechanical drawings to work from, or the real thing.

    I'm dying to show David. He will appreciate just what marvellous work this is. Being of a mechanical background, he can appreciate the achievement. The spokes on the bike wheel are the most intriguing thing I've seen. I know we have been debating on how to produce wheels like this for our Jag sports, and he's done, and done it well.

    Thanks for sharing. Most enjoyable. Hope the gent joins the forum. He'd be a wonderful new member. And of course, I'm dying to pick his brain.

    Cheers

    Hi Ross

    After viewing the models at close range with Dave, I have come to the conclusion, that I think they're kits. The minor detail is so strong, and with things like nuts and bolts, exhaust hangers, and sundry other parts of the mechanical background, it would take a 'lifetime' to hand make so many parts.

    AND, they don't give any impression of variability, which is natural when you are making a number of pieces by hand. The exhaust pipe, and the pipes on the bikes, alone, would be a nightmare to shape, and they're picture perfect.

    The lines are 100% straight, even when curved, and the spokes in the wheels of the bikes would be a bigger nightmare to drill and fix into place.

    Not that that should make any difference in terms of how we enjoy the finished product, it's beautiful. It's just that I don't think it's handmade. I may be wrong, and I'm sure someone will tell me pretty darn quickly!!!

    Cheers

    I think the cars are wood allright,I am not sure how some of the parts are made but I cold make the nuts etc OK. Just a bit of time making the internal hex die for it then punching the dowelling through.The parting it off into nuts Makbe you would need a Jewlers metal lathe to do the turning.I dont have any troubles turning very small parts.
    The timber is Oregon and has a coarse grain I have made a few boxes with it and it is easy to work and looks great ,I think.But being so soft I wouldnt have used it for a car.Very easily damaged.and tends to ooz resin.
    Look I hope that Waynnicko comes on board.However he did these models we dont know,we can learn a lot more than we know..I love them

    I have seen the cars in person now.They are all hand made.They are unbelievable.
    8 months work in one model.I picked up a lot of hints and hope to be able to use them.
    Wayne is a magician with tools.He only has all the usual tools and no fancy or secret gadgets.
    It is all skill.I also saw the reject box of bits that didn't come upto scratch.
    Wayne has won many prizes.
    I had a wonderful time at his place.I thought it was Christmas all over again.
    Thanks Wayne for a great afternoon
