PostSubject: VAMeccano... Fokker und    Mon Dec 23, 2013 9:59 pm

Now sharpen up you lackadaisical lot!!!

I know I've been quiet... but I've also laid my hands on a box of vintage meccano.. and I intend on christmas day to make two things... not one thing but two things... and if there is enough to make two things then I will... but if not then I'll make one then the other.. but this isn't the important issue.. the important issue is what two things... and WTF has it got to do with VAM? well I'll tell you... I intend to build.. in no particular order..

a WWII biplane for my BOB pilot
a racing car for my Racing Car driver...

now I know a thread without pictures is like an empty bra... but it gets me motivated.. like a full bra!

So, I hereby declare the Slackademy will produce by 1900hrs on Boxing Day 2013...something equivalent to a full bra!

 affraid 

and, as always, I have a plan... and Rum! Twisted Evil 

 flower 

I'm on it!
 Twisted Evil

Funny you should mention Meccano and Christmas - we dug our son's little tree out of the loft this year but couldn't find the feet for it.  I came up with a solution using Meccano :

OK, here we go...

I got this box of Meccano.. I think it's 1950s by the colour and stamping..all for £10!!  affraid  affraid 
and I can't convey just how much fun it was to get my hands on those brass nuts today... I was absorbed into a different world... I had such good fun...more photos later but for now.... here we go..

A box of meccano and a picture of a Fokker.. here's what happened next!!


















OK, i had the best Xmas day in ages!!! Can't beat a box full of early Meccano and dinner made for you..

More pictures to come including a close up of the BOMB  affraid affraid affraid 

Hope you all enjoyed the SlakkenFokker SF-44 Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  Shocked 

I need to wait for some brass nuts to arrive before i can give it the finishing touches and then start on the Go-Kart... not enough Meccano left for a racing car!!!  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad 


Achtung Fokkers!!

Hope you enjoyed the show  flower 

Smile

thanks Rossinski and Clivverski.. appreciate the encouragement Twisted Evil 

just waiting to get my hands on some more vintage nuts and I can add a little more detailing and get the pharken' race car/go-cart sorted... it might be a squeeze but i've looked at the remaining bits and I think the SlakkenDampfWerksFokkers might be able to cobble up something..only it's going to be mainly in yellow and green.... Rolling Eyes Evil or Very Mad 

but as with all this fokkerin' ...somehow if you scratch your vintage brass nuts long enough... something always comes up Evil or Very Mad 

Watch this space!! Smile  affraid jocolor elephant
