OK, when I say nearly finished, I mean that:
Rough polish done-check.
Basic assembly done-check.
Gold plating done – non check.
Display case made – non check.
Buyer found – non check.
But does it look mean or what.
It spans about 600mm wide and about 350mm high and it weighs about 8 kg’s.
The rear end, one that the devastated enemies mostly see.
If they are alive, that is.
So now I have to make a display case, which is another mission.
I think I am going to put mirror on the bottom of the case so the underside detail can be seen.
This is the typical piece that suffers from ‘project creep’, as I name it.
I swear, my next one is going to stay in tight parameters this time
I think I said that as well when I finished the Dragon Cross bow.
Here is a video I uploaded to You Tube.
I had to make a spinning kind of table so the thing can turn around and then I lay on the floor and hand turned it while Anne did the camera work.
Sophisticated, if nothing else.
